It never hurts to have a machine in the shop that tackles multiple applications, and the Flo-Dynamics coolant service machine promises to do just that. Between its state-of-the-art design and its multifunctionality, the C-VAC3 offers mechanics a one-stop shop for their coolant flushing, filling, draining, and pressure-testing work. Retailing for $2,692, the Flo-Dynamics coolant service machine won’t come cheap, but it will make some of your automotive service work a bit more streamlined.
This Flo-Dynamics coolant service machine offers a state-of-the-art design. It comes equipped with 2 separate 7-gallon new fluid tanks and one 8-gallon waste fluid tank. The C-VAC3 includes an automatic new and waste fluid tank shutoff with an indicator, a pressure or vacuum gauge, and quick seal connectors, which keep fluid inside the hoses rather than on the floor.
The C-VAC3 packs a lot of multifunctionality into a relatively small package. With its radiator mouth suction and fill process, it can rapidly drain and fill coolant. It can quickly and completely flush or exchange all coolant in the system, and it can drain for component change. Plus, the Flo-Dynamics coolant service system can perform a pressure test on the system and radiator cap.
For durability and convenience, the Flo-Dynamics coolant service machine offers a durable roto-cast polyethylene body and tanks, which should also keep the C-VAC3 from causing any accidental damage to sensitive auto bodies. It offers an ergonomically correct working height. Flo-Dynamics has mounted the C-VAC3 on 5″ locking front caster wheels and 10″ rear wheels for easy maneuverability as well. It comes equipped with clear service hoses that allow visual evidence of fluid movement, and an indicator lamp that shows all of the machine operations and status functions.
