 LEWISVILLE, Texas — With the Deslugger, professional technicians can strike out the slugging that occurs when excess oil and/or liquid refrigerant collects in the compressor after the system has been idle or parked over a period of time, according to Four Seasons.

“Unless the oil is purged, the slugs of liquid can cause vibration, noise, clutch failure, and/or damage to internal mechanism of the compressor and A/C system,” said Benny Araujo, marketing manager for Four Seasons. “The new Four Seasons Deslugger has a timer that cycles the compressor multiple times prior to normal operation to gradually push oil and liquid refrigerant out of the compressor before it fully engages.”

Available Desluggers include:

•The Universal Deslugger – designed for 06-02 Honda CRV’s with a scroll compressor, but can also be used on applications that have a two wire lead oil coming from the coil of the compressor.

 

•The GM Deslugger – covers 09-00 GM applications with Denso 10S models. Connectors are included for easy installation.

 

•The Chrysler/Dodge Deslugger – covers Chrysler Voyager and Dodge Caravan applications with Denso 10S models. Connectors are included for easy installation.

For more information on the Deslugger or Four Seasons, contact a local territory manager or visit www.4s.com.
