JAVAC’s Unique Spark Proof and Dual Voltage Refrigerant Recovery Unit Shortlisted in RAC Cooling Industry Awards

JAVAC, the number one HVAC tool supplier in the UK, is delighted to announce that it has been named as a finalist in the prestigious RAC Cooling Industry Awards 2019.

The company’s R32-ready, XTR-Pro-DV A2L Spark Proof Refrigerant Recovery Unit, the only dual voltage recovery unit, has been shortlisted in the ‘Air Conditioning Product of the Year – Components & Peripherals’ category.


Now in its 15th year, the RAC Cooling Industry Awards champions the leading innovations and environmental successes in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry and celebrates best practice. The award winners will be announced on 25th September 2019 at the prestigious London Hilton, Park Lane, where over 600 refrigeration and air conditioning professionals will come together for a night of recognition and celebration of the sector’s achievements.

As the ACR industry witnesses the escalating growth of changeovers to A2L refrigerant, it’s essential to have tools designed specifically to deal with these mildly flammable gases. The XTR-Pro-DV A2L has therefore been designed with a raft of safety features and significantly reduces the risks from sparks making it ideal for engineers working with mildly flammable gases. Designed specifically for systems where A2L/R32 gases are in use, the XTR-Pro-DV A2L’s spark-proof design features a 5m hard-wired cable – critical when dealing with new mildly flammable A2L refrigerants.

The innovative unit also overcomes the challenges of working with the UK’s single and three-phase electrical supplies on site. Featuring a simple switch allowing engineers to change the unit to suit the voltage, easily switching from 115V to 230V as required, avoids the need for engineers to carry two recovery units in their vans. As an added safety feature, the unit’s ground-breaking X-Connect technology protects the XTR-Pro-DV A2L’s vital components against the damaging effects of incorrect voltage, another industry first.

“Leading the market in safety, performance and convenience, the XTR-Pro-DV A2L is a must for any AC engineers’ van. As the only recovery unit that is dual voltage, covers multiple refrigerants and is R32 ready, it offers great flexibility on site” said Scott Davies, UK Sales Director at JAVAC. “We are delighted that this innovative product has been recognised at these prestigious industry awards.”

Offering market-leading performance, the XTR-Pro-DV A2L features a heavy duty 1/2 HP high torque AC motor, which has been designed to reduce noise and increase liquid pumping by 50%. This means fast, effective, reliable performance for engineers. The unit also saves on downtime for engineers since purging the system and self-cleaning can also be completed while the system is running so there is no need to shut down. Plus, the unit’s oil-less compressor also helps keep downtime to a minimum.

Designed specifically to make an engineer’s job easier the unit is simple to transport and use, while offering JAVAC’s market-leading performance. The XTR-PRO-DV A2L offers peace of mind to engineers who need to be confident in the use of R32 as uptake increases.
