K-Line Industries has introduced its new coolant management tool for truck maintenance shops. It drains, pressure-tests, and refills coolant systems simply and cleanly, the maker says, saving time, reducing or eliminating air pockets, and contributing to ‘green’ shop initiatives. It also prevents the unwanted mixing of coolant types.

The tool includes a 20-gal tank and cart assembly on wheels, a coolant reservoir cap adapter, a vacuum module, and a pressure module.  After it’s attached to the truck’s cooling system, clean and dry shop air is utilized to “blow” coolant out of the system and into the tool’s 20-gallon tank. With the system empty, any necessary repairs can be made and a pressure check can be done before the system is refilled. Coolant is then replaced using the vacuum module to draw coolant back into the tank, reducing or eliminating air pockets. With the coolant captured within the tool throughout the procedure, there are virtually no spills, no waste, and no chance of mixing coolant types.
