Test an Automobile Canister Purge Control Valve

In this Test Evan Basabe talks about how to Test a Canister Purge Control Valve on a Vehicle using the Bartol Mag-Probe


The Bartol Mag-Probe will separate electrical from mechanical problems in seconds on purge control valves.

 Effective tool for reducing downtime when trouble shooting purge control valves,electrical systems with solenoid valves, relays or coils. The Mag-Probe can be used in any environment. In Clean Rooms, Explosive environments, Underwater, temperatures ranging from -80°F to 180° F, in a Vacuum. It can also be used on the some of the smallest relays in the world down to 1 gauss and the largest solenoid valves using the de-sensitizing shield to block over lapping fields. It has a shelf life of 10 years and will identify North and South Poles on any magnet. It also comes with a test magnet to make sure the tester is working correctly. There are unlimited applications for the Mag-Probe. When the light comes on you know you have the presense of current, continuity, and voltage in one quick test and will work while equipment is operational, safety permitting. Great for quickly determining which direction to go in when you are trouble shooting electrical coils, solenoid valves, relays and/or anything that has an electrically energized coil or winding.

This Channel explains how the Bartol MagProbe tests Electrically Operated Solenoid Valves and Relays 99% faster than a Voltmeter. We will be discussing all the different applications of the Bartol MagProbe, including purge control valves and the amount of time it saves the technicians and all the different environments it can be used in. The MagProbe will allow many of the MagProbe users to get their money back on the first test.

About the Author
Bob Bartol has spent his whole life working with electronics in almost every capacity and spent many hours in Physics classes. He currently holds 4 U.S. patents and has been making a living off one of the patents "The Bartol Mag-Probe" for over twenty years. Bartol Research's Mag-Probe now has a global reach and is dramatically reducing trouble shooting downtime anywhere a solenoid valve. relay, or contactor is used. F111 Air Force Projects - European Flight Competition January 1968 Bob attended electronics school in the Air Force. Upon graduation he was assigned to a fighter wing in Germany. During his assignment he prepared seven aircraft for European competition. The fighter wings aircraft won the competition. Bob then returned to the United States and taught advanced radar for two years. Two years later, he returned to Europe. During this assignment, Air Force headquarters Europe selected Bob to open a Precision Measuring Equipment Laboratory (P.M.E.L) in England. It was the first of its kind in the Air Force. Upon his return to the United States, Air Force headquarters assigned Bob to Air Force research command in Florida. This was strictly a scientific assignment for research and development. After three years he moved from Eglin AFB in Florida to Edwards Air Force Base in California where he had direct contact with the National Bureau of Standards and supported research and development aircraft. During this assignment, he designed a modification for the TF X fighter (F-111). This modification made possible an additional 9800 flying hours per year. The F111 was the first swing wing aircraft in history. General Dynamics completed the modification prior to acceptance by the U.S. Air Force. Modification of F111 Aircraft General Dynamics March 1968 As a result of increasing this flying time Bob Received an award from Edwards Air Force Base for Increasing flying time of the F111 by 9,800 hours per year. The Award was Presented by Colonel Grumbles to TSGT Bob Bartol on June 17, 1968
