Carlyle Tools launches brake fluid boiling point tester

Date: Monday 27 March 2023

Carlyle Tools, the premium Tools and Workshop Equipment line from automotive aftermarket manufacturer NAPA, has introduced a new Brake Fluid Boiling Point Tester in the UK & Ireland.

Brake fluid is built to withstand extreme temperatures during the braking process, but moisture absorption lowers the boiling point over time. Left unchecked, this can lead to vapour-lock and brake failure, so a Brake Fluid Tester (BFT) is an essential product for every professional diagnostic toolkit.

Unlike a conductivity tester, the Carlyle Brake Fluid Boiling Point Tester accurately tests the brake fluid up to a boiling point of 320°C. It delivers reliable results at all stages of the brake fluid’s lifespan in just 30 seconds. With an operating voltage of 12V, the tester is compatible with DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 4+, and DOT 5.1 brake fluids. It also comes equipped with a backlit LCD screen and 19 self-selectable languages for an easy and accessible user experience.

In a significant portfolio expansion for the brand, this launch represents the first diagnostic product offered by Carlyle in the UK & Ireland. The Carlyle Brake Fluid Tester is UKCA / CE certified and backed by a 1-year warranty, allowing professionals to provide a high-quality service without interruption.

With NAPA Know How incorporated into every aspect of the range, Carlyle introduces a new legacy in the professional tool market. For more information on Carlyle Professional Hand Tools or their product catalogue, visit the NAPA website to find or become a stockist.
