New refrigerant leak detector meets latest test standards

LinkedIn +

The new TP-9364 PRO-Alert IR electronic refrigerant leak detector from Tracer Products is certified to meet the SAE J2791 and J2913 standards, which have recently seen several revisions. It utilizes a state-of-the-art infrared sensor to accurately detect refrigerant leaks down to 0.1oz/year (3g/year). A three-position sensitivity switch minimizes false triggering and enables easy diagnosis of small, medium and large leaks. The unit is sensitive to R-12, R-134a, R-1234yf and other refrigerants.

Unlike heated sensors on competitors’ units, the PRO-Alert IR’s infrared sensor offers consistent response throughout its life. In addition, it will not become contaminated by exposure to large amounts of refrigerant. Sensor life is more than 1,000 hours. The unit’s high-efficiency air sampling pump provides quicker response and quicker clearing. A rubber-coated, flexible metal probe fits easily into tight places and holds its position. An audible alarm and multiple LEDs help locate leaks fast.

The PRO-Alert IR is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, which provides over six hours of use between charges. Onboard diagnostics indicate charging status, and alert the user to a low battery condition or infrared sensor failure. The unit can also be used with an AC power adapter and a 12V DC power adapter with cigarette lighter plug included. All components are packed in a rugged plastic carrying case. The AC adapter is available in 120V, 230V, 240V and 100V versions.
