Yellow Jacket

More than sixty years ago, Jack Ritchie set a goal for Ritchie Engineering: to become the standard by which all other HVAC hoses are measured. In the last six decades, the YELLOW JACKET® brand has not only become the standard in hoses, tools, refrigeration gauges, manifolds, HVAC vacuum pumps and refrigerant recovery machines, it’s become legendary…

Yellow Jacket YJ-LTE Recovery Unit

Don’t let the small size fool you. The new YJ-LTE™ Refrigerant Recovery System is packed with the features you need at a price your budget can handle. Like a built in purge circuit which eliminates the need for external equipment and makes for easy clearing at the end of the job. And superior condenser performance which means the recovery tank stays cooler for a longer period of time, allowing you to recover more refrigerant without high-pressure cut-out. And it’s simple to operate, too, with a single valve, single gauge control panel.

Yellow Jacket XLT2-AP Recovery Unit

Designed to Meet Safety Requirements for R-32, R-1234yf and R-1234ze The drive to lower global warming potential refrigerants with increased flammability has necessitated the evolution of the market leading YELLOW JACKET® RecoverXLT™ recovery machine: The new RecoverXLT2-AP™ Refrigerant Recovery Machine with twin cylinder 1/2 hp oil less compressor and gravity drain condenser. The unique “ambient pressure switch” and three meter power cord comply with the current safety requirements. The RecoverXLT2-AP is specifically designed for the new lower GWP refrigerants including R-32, R-1234yf and R1234ze as well as the most common CFC, HFC and HFO refrigerants, including R-22, R-404A, R-407, R-410A, R-448A and R-449A.

Yellow Jacket Bullet Vacuum Pump

The BULLET™ pulls down to 25 microns or better, protecting from contaminants and non-condensable gasses in the HVAC system, which can damage components, reduce efficiency and cause system failure.

  • Wide mouth oil reservoir port for easier, cleaner filling. Doubles as pump exhaust; threaded to attach garden hose for exhausting to remote location
  • Large oil sight glass for easy monitoring of oil level
  • Large brass oil drain for easy access to fast oil changes
  • Internal intake check valve to help prevent oil backup into the system during a power failure

Yellow Jacket Super Evac Vaccum Pump

The SuperEvac™ vacuum pump is a highly efficient, two-stage rotary vane oil-sealed pump field-rated at 15 microns or better.

  • Isolation valve for oil changes without losing vacuum in the system
  • Built-in vacuum indicator gauge
  • Wide-mouth oil reservoir port for easier, cleaner filling. Doubles as pump exhaust—threaded to attach garden hose for exhausting to remote location
  • Large oil sight glass for easy monitoring of oil level
  • Large brass oil drain for easy access to fast oil changes
  • Gas ballast valve keeps

Yellow Jacket Accu Probe UV Leak Detector

The ultra-sensitive sensor of the YELLOW JACKET AccuProbe UV Handheld Leak Detector allows it to detect even the most difficult to detect R-134a, R-404A, R-407C, R-410A and 1234yf refrigerants. Our exclusive solid electrolyte sensor technology reduces heat and gives the sensor longer life than traditional heated anode or heated diode detectors.

The AccuProbe UV features low, normal and high sensitivity levels with visual and audible signals, and a 3 LED UV light system that works with 395-415nm wavelength leak tracing dyes. The audible alert, which can also be muted, and the flashing visual alarm indicator at the probe end increase in frequency and duration as concentration increases.

The AccuProbe UV is equipped with the advanced digital SmartAlarm LED display. This feature takes the guesswork out of whether or not to repair a small leak.

Yellow Jacket Titan 4 Valve Manifold (R410a and R22 available)

The new TITAN Test and Charging Manifold is the first forged aluminium manifold in the industry. The special aluminium alloy construction of the manifold body makes it lightweight for handling ease with the durability and reliability required for repeated, rugged use.

Yellow Jacket Brute II Large Bore Manifold (R410a and R22 available)

The BRUTE II ™ 4-Valve Test and Charging Manifold provides the flow that’s proven faster than any conventional manifold. The aluminium alloy body is forged for strength and reliability with 3/8” bores through the body to speed the job.

Yellow Jacket Plus II Hoses (R410a, R22, 60cm and 180cm available)

Double barrier proteciton for CFC, HCFC and HFC refrigerants

  • 1/4” PLUS II ™ hoses are UL recognized assemblies
  • The nylon permeation barrier meets SAE requirements J2196 for CFC, HCFC and HFC refrigerants
