Auto & Light Truck Coolant Test Strips # 1570
If pH is between 6.5 & 9, coolant is a Pass, if indicator reads Fail then replace coolant.
pH Brake Fluid Test Strips Synthetic & Conventional DOT 3, 4 & 5.1 # 80700
TESTS: Automotive & Heavy Duty Brake Fluids.
Find the cause of corrosion before it creates an unsafe hazard or unneccessary breakdown and repairs.
Innovative, cutting-edge technology, economical and easy to use. Corrosion never sleeps! In less than a minute pH Brake Fluid Test Strips find the cause of corrosion, provide reliable results to determine potentially harmful, unsafe or damaging conditions. Identify the need for service, showing the customer diagnostic results for the service decision. Build confidence in your diagnostics.
Directions for Use: Have the test strip ready. Open the brake fluid reservoir. Dip and read in 30 seconds. Immediately replace the cap on the reservoir.
Tests For Coolant Presence in Engine Oil (Gas & Diesel) & Automatic Transmission Fluid # 80900
Detects 0 - 6% coolant contamination in Engine Oil (Gas & Diesel) & ATF where this is a growing problem for Automotive & Heavy Vehicles.
Engine & Transmission should be at operating temperature no more than 10 minutes prior to testing. Remove the oil or transmission dip stick, use a clean cloth & wipe the fluid from the dip stick. Insert the dip stick into the oil or transmission fluid & immediately remove. Place the fluid end of the stick against the pad on the test strip. After 60 seconds compare the colour of the test strip pad to the colour codes on the bottle side panel.
NOTE: In new vehicles ATF may come with a Check Plug (containing No Dip Stick).

Fluid Moisture Test Strips for 5 Oils # 80600
Detects 0 - 5% Moisture Content In:
Engine (Gas & Diesel) Oil, ATF, Power Steering, Hydraulic & ALL Brake Fluids DOT 3, 4, 5.1, Synthetics & Conventional.
Water reduces the fluid's ability to do its work and promotes corrosion. In the case of the Brake Fluids, water reduces the boil point of the fluid potentially causing a safety hazard event. Fluid Diagnostic Test Strips assess the health of the fluid and identify when a fluid needs to be changes. Determining the presence of water is important to maintain the integrity of the vehicle components and early detection of moisture will minimize the impact of corrosion - avoiding costly repairs and loss. Water breaks down oil-additive packages. It promotes the formation of acids that corrode metal surfaces, supports oxidation in mineral-based oils, supports biological or microbial growth, especially with prolonged idling.
Test strip must be used immediately after opening foil pouch.
# 80600 Replaces ACUSTRIP #'s 6000, ACU6000, 40002
Low Level - Wear Metal Ions Test Strips For All Automotive & Heavy Duty Vehicles # 80800
TESTS: Engine (Gas & Diesel) Oil (400 ppm), Differential & Transmission (1000 ppm), Power Steering (200 ppm) & Coolant (10 ppm).
Identify the presence and degree of Low Level - Wear Metal Ions within a minute. Tests range from 10 - 1000 ppm. Any abnormal presence of METAL IONS requires immediate corrective action, resulting in less maintenance costs, higher operating efficiencies and increased enging and component life.
-METAL IONS count meets or exceeds the ppm per fluid as above, the fluids must be changed immediately.
-Extremely high METAL IONS ppm - possibility of component failure.

Hydrocarbon Test Strips for DEF, Coolant, Water # 80508
Hydrocarbon Test Strips are used to detect the presence of OIL in Diesel Exhaust Fuel (DEF), ALL Coolants & Water
Simply dip the strip in a sample of DEF, Coolant or Water and slowly move it back and forth for 20 seconds and then remove, wait 15 seconds, compare the colour of the test strip pad to the colour on the bottle side panel. eg. 30 ml of Oil can contaminate and destroy 30,000 litres of DEF.
# 80508 Replaces ACUSTRIP #’s 44-863, ACU44863, 480508, ACU480508, 328-00012, 328-44-863
