The Status Scientific Controls Mentor SS980 Refrigerant Identifier utilizes state-of-the-art NDIR (Non-Dispersive Infrared) technology for the identification of refrigerant gases in automotive air-conditioning systems. The Mentor SS980 has been developed with over 30 years of experience in the design and production of safety-critical gas analysis systems recognized globally as the best in the market for accuracy and quality

The Mentor SS980 refrigerant identifier is ideal for helping to protect automotive air conditioning systems and service and recovery equipment from potential damage caused by the potential, and unknowing use of illegal refrigerants. The recovery of contaminated refrigerant can damage expensive service and recovery equipment, potentially leading to expensive repair bills or even scrappage. The Mentor will prevent contamination of your refrigerant supply from illegal contaminants from refrigerant cylinders and customer vehicles, therefore stopping cross-contamination of other vehicles with these illegal contaminants.
