The Bacharach PGM-IR leak detector offers superior performance and functionality for low ppm level leak detection of refrigerants or carbon dioxide. A built-in library of 50 refrigerants enables the PGM-IR to accurately detect the smallest leaks at their source. The unit is immune to sudden changes in temperature or humidity and to over-exposure. The PGM-IR requires no zeroing of positive readings with extended exposure to gas. Applications include refrigerant gas detection, trace gas analysis and medical monitoring.
With its high flow rate, real-time ppm concentrations or TWA values are displayed instantly with corresponding audible tick-rate indicator to precisely pinpoint leaks. Rapid clearing time enables accurate ambient-air leak detection using the probe along a chiller or display-case. A re-zeroing algorithm and filter/bladder system allows the unit to be used in contaminated areas without affecting target gas readings. The rechargeable Li-ion battery provides a minimum of 8 hours of runtime for all-day usage.
The Background: Our customer is a supermarket chain that needs an effective way to monitor for refrigerant leaks from the chilled cases in their stores. Supermarkets have many of these chilled cases and risk food spoilage, increased operating costs, and EPA fines if the system leaks.
The Problem: Finding small leaks in a large space with many potential leaks points is a very difficult task complicated by the limited sensitivity of most leak detectors.
The Solution: The Bacharach PGM-IR leak detector uses infrared sensing technology that is the most sensitive in the field, capable of detecting refrigerants levels as low as 1ppm. Being a portable device, the PGM-IR makes hunting for leaks over a large area much simpler than before.
