ACUSTRIP 5610Pen
5610 pH Pen

Maintaining the appropriate pH level is crucial to the protection of your cooling system and preventing costly repairs. Acids may form in engine coolants that are exposed to combustion gases, metals from corrosion, and poor quality water. A low pH indicates that corrosion of engine copper, and iron-based materials is taking place. Higher than normal Alkalinity indicates that aluminum corrosion or silicate depletion is occurring. The Acustrip pH pen offers a digital readout of the pH level, where users prefer greater precision than provided by Acustrip test strips. The specific range and sensitivity are as follows:
  • Range: 0.0 to 14.0
  • pH Resolution: 0.1
  • pH Accuracy: ±0.1

Diesel Emission Fluid (DEF) ISO22241 requires ISO3696 Type 3 water for the manufacture of Quality DEF (Urea). The specified pH range is 5.0 to 7.5 at 25 degrees centigrade. Regular testing of the make-up water will minimize the risk of using off-spec water.



More Info
ACUSTRIP 5113Pen
5113 Conductivity (TDS) Pen

Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) can cause scaling interfering with fluid flow and heat transfer, pitting, and water pump failure leading to major repair expenses. Acustrip has worked with Amalgatech and Blendtech to demonstrate the relationship between TDS and conductivity tests. The resulting Acustrip 5113 Conductivity Pen is the quickest, most accurate, and most efficient measure of total dissolved solids in your coolant system. This test should be administered at each PM to assure that the maximum TDS does not exceed 5%.

Diesel Emission Fluid (DEF) ISO22241 requires ISO3696 Type 3 water for the manufacture of Quality DEF (Urea). The Specification limit is 0.5 max mS/m at 25 degrees centigrade. Regular testing of the make-up water will minimize the risk of using off-spec water.

ACUSTRIP ACU3300 Series
Cool Check® Coolant Quality Test

The Acustrip ACU3300 Series of Cool Check® Coolant Quality Test Strips is the superior way to protect your engine investment. When poor quality make-up water is added to the system or when minimum coolant maintenance is not observed, pH levels can rise or fall to dangerous levels and contaminants (Sulfate and Chloride) can rise to unacceptable levels. The effect of a blown head gasket can also be detected as the exhaust raises the level of Sulfate and reduces the pH. The Cool Check® strips detect these issues by determining the level of pH, Sulfate and Chloride on Site, in a matter of minutes. The specific ranges are as follows:
  • Chloride 0 - 400 ppm
  • Sulfate 0 - 3000 ppm
  • pH 6 - 11

ACUSTRIP ACU8000 Series
ACUTEST-2 Coolant Quality and Brake Fluid Moisture Test

The ACUSTRIP 8000 Series (ACUTEST-2) is a valuable tool in the assessment of both coolant quality and moisture in brake fluid. The ACUTEST2 allows you to conveniently and affordably perform the tests at each PM or oil change. Most cars do not meet minimum requirements for moisture in brake fluid. In fact, in Europe where brake fluid checks are required, more than half the cars routinely fail the tests. Each ACUTEST-2 set includes a coolant test strip (ACU1550), a brake fluid moisture test (ACU6000) and customer care card to record and report the results to the customer. The specific ranges are as follows:
  • RA < 3 - 10 +,
  • pH < 5 - 11 +,
  • Glycol 0 - 60%
  • Presence of Moisture in Brake Fluid
