Easy-To-Use, Safer Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Testing

EnviroTech, Inc., the inventor and licensor of the world’s best-selling leak
detection smoke technology, was recently awarded U.S. Patent No. 9,417,152 B2
for its Combination Smoke Machine and Nitrogen Generator (int’l patents

This cost-effective, patented N2 generator design is the smallest available in
any smoke machine. The integration of the N2 generator into the carrying
handle creates a portable smoke machine with a small footprint. STAR’s design,
built in partnership with Parker Hannifin (the generator’s developer), is
currently available in the OEM-approved Vacutec WV622N. The user simply
connects the unit to workshop air and smoke is generated with an endless supply
of clean/pure/dry nitrogen.

Using nitrogen to produce and deliver smoke during EVAP testing is strongly
recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), California Bureau of
Automotive Repair (BAR), leading automakers (OEMs), Society of Automotive
Engineers (SAE International) papers, insurance liability companies and other
responsible businesses and organizations promoting safer best business
