Testo have led the ‘smart’ revolution in giving HVAC/R service engineers a wide range of test instruments with Bluetooth connectivity to smartphones or tablet devices, enabling them to work smarter and to gain benefits such as on-site reporting and improved documentation of test results.
Now you have the chance to win a free testo 550 digital manifold worth £269 at the HVAC/R show just by heading over to the Testo stand B39 and putting your details into the draw – the winner will be announced just after the show closes on the 25th January.
The Testo 550 is a 2-port manifold allowing the engineer to get fast and accurate measurements of highside and lowside pressures as well as condensing and evaporation temperatures. The other added bonus of moving to digital manifolds is that the user also gets real time display of superheat and subcooling values as well.
An often overlooked additional benefit of Testo digital manifold’s is that they allow the user to easily update the device for new refrigerants that are introduced via a smartphone or tablet and the Bluetooth app. Currently the testo 550 supports over 60 different refrigerants. Also, the manifold incorporates a temperature compensated leak test function that allows engineers to fully test a system and shows the start/end system pressure and the time of the test.
The free App to support the manifolds also allows on-site documentation of test results with the ability to provide clear and concise reports for clients.

Introducing the NEW testo 440
At the HVAC & Refrigeration show we will be launching a new air velocity & IAQ measuring instrument to the public. The testo 440 combines a compact handheld measuring instrument with user-friendly measurement menus and wide selection of wireless probes – for the versatile and convenient measurement of all air conditioning, ventilation, and indoor air quality parameters.
We will have the new testo 440 and a selection of probes on display at the show. Visit our stand B39 to get hands on with the new product and find out more about its functions and applications.
Smart Probes Refrigeration Set
From the award winning Testo ‘Smart Probes’ range comes the ‘Refrigeration Set’ which effectively turns your smartphone into a digital refrigeration manifold, with clear display of both highside/lowside pressure and temperatures as well as direct readings of superheat and subcooling values – all without requiring any use of traditional temperature/pressure lookup tables, and giving faster, more accurate measurements of a refrigeration systems performance.
For users who prefer a more traditional ‘digital’ manifold type product the testo 550 and testo 557 units provide either a 2-port (testo 550) or 4-port (testo 557) option. Again, these products have Bluetooth communication to the free to download ‘Refrigeration App’ and this allows engineers to view the measurements either directly on the manifold, or remotely up to 10m away on their smartphone or tablet.
With many existing refrigerants having major increases in costs it is more important than ever to make sure that systems are fully pressure tight before filling to ensure no loss. A key function with the Testo digital manifolds is the ability to perform a temperature compensated tightness test following any work to repair a leak to a system, and this is one area where traditional ‘analogue’ gauge sets can often perform poorly.
Finally, with all the changes going on as part of the drive to refrigerants with lower GWP it is essential that engineers can update any manifolds to suit. Again, with traditional analogue type units this normally means extra cost in purchasing new gauges, however with the Testo digital manifolds any update to the refrigerants tables available is simply done via the Bluetooth connection to the free ‘Refrigeration App, ensuring that refrigeration and AC engineers are always in touch with technology changes.
