CPS® Products’ MX RRR Series Allows Technicians to Work Smarter and Win More Business

To ensure a safe environment at CIV Car Care Center, the team purchased CPS Products’ MAXXAIR™ MX3030 Refrigerant Management System.

For more than 20 years, CIV Car Care Center owner Carlos Reyes has combined his passion for automobiles with his commitment to the community.

Born and raised in Boston, MA, Reyes opened his first body shop, C&J Auto Body, in 1991 in Boston, which was eventually sold. In 2019, he established CIV Car Care Center in Hyde Park.

The body shop prides itself on providing exceptional automotive repair services and ensuring customers’ needs are met with professionalism and expertise.

Branden Naraine, body shop manager, said Reyes has built a reputation for offering top-notch service in the Greater Boston area and runs the business based on his love for cars and care for people.

“He is very generous and volunteers his time in the community,” said Naraine. “It’s something that is near and dear to his heart.”

Jose, a technician at CIV Car Care, is hooking up the high and low hoses to the refrigerant lines.

Reyes supports a variety of local charities and youth organizations in the Boston area, such as the Boston Raiders Pop Warner Football Team and YMCA Greater Boston.

“He wants to give back to the community where he was raised and helped make him the man he is today, which is a pillar in the community,” said Naraine. “The positive impact that he has will ultimately change the lives of some of the youth in our city.”

Since joining the shop in April 2023, Naraine has found Reyes considers his employees and customers family.

“That’s what’s most important to his business,” he said. “We have a family atmosphere at the shop and when customers come in, they are treated like a family member.”

Part of taking care of employees and customers is ensuring a safe environment in the shop.

“When a vehicle is hit in the front and you have to change the condenser and AC unit, it has to be safe for the technicians to take those parts off,” explained Naraine. “It’s essential to our business that we’re able to be sure they are safely depressurized.”

The shop purchased its first refrigerant management system from CPS Products in November 2022, the MAXXAIR™ MX3030 Refrigerant Management System.

The dual refrigerant unit provides full YF compatibility and was designed to efficiently recover, recycle and recharge automotive A/C systems, serving all refrigerant types. It is compatible with both electrical and traditional engine-driven compressors and is constructed of a durable welded steel frame to withstand shop environments.

It can also quickly convert from an R-1234yf model to an R-134a to service an increase in demand or replace a non-working R-134a machine.

The patented motor-controlled ball valve was created to open wider than traditional valve configurations for increased flow. With many compressors failing due to varying amounts of oil, the patented compressor is oilless. The product has an interactive touchscreen LCD display compatible with a Wi-Fi printer and can integrate with Bluetooth wireless adapters for service checks.

Serving multiple industries, CPS Products develops and manufactures specialty tools and equipment for service technicians to “work smarter, win more business and make more money.”

CPS Products’ MAXXAIR™ MX3030 Refrigerant Management System has become an essential piece of equipment at CIV Car Care. Technicians Alex and Alberto are pictured.

Established in 1989 and based in Florida, the company invests heavily in industrial design and builds its products to be easy to use. The CPS development team includes electrical, mechanical, software and chemical engineers.

The company’s distributor, Kwik, recommended CIV Car Care Center purchase the high-quality MX3030 Refrigerant Management System for the facility.

“When recharging the air conditioning system in vehicles, you need to think about how you store these chemicals and make sure they don’t leak,” said Naraine. “The MX3030 is really going to help keep our technicians safe.”

Working with a pressurized system, the CIV Car Care Center team wanted to ensure they had a good understanding of how to use the machine. After seeing a demo and receiving training, Naraine said they have been impressed with how easy it was to use.

“The gauges let you know if pressure is getting too high,” said Naraine. “The machine lets you know what to do and really doesn’t allow you to make a mistake.”

Naraine said once the car has been repaired and put back together with a new condenser, the MX3030 ensures it is recharged accurately with the amount of refrigerant required.

Since purchasing the unit, Naraine said it has become an essential piece of equipment in the shop and they have been impressed with the customer service provided by CPS Products.
