General Tools and Instruments' Digital Refrigerant Leak Detector senses EPA-approved refrigerants
General Tools and Instruments' Digital Refrigerant Leak Detector (RLD400) is built to detect all commercially available HFC, HFO, HC, HCFC and CFC refrigerant gases, including many new ozone layer-friendly blends, such as R-22 and R-1234yf, approved under the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP).
This instrument is suitable for inspecting and maintaining mobile and stationary air conditioners, refrigerators, chillers and heat pumps. It meets SAE J2791 and J2913 standards and European standard EN14624.
Among the RLD400’s features are the lifespan of its proprietary semiconductor sensor — more than 300 hours of operation or 10 years normal use — and sensitivities of 0.05 oz./year (1.4 g/year) to R-134a and 0.025 oz./year (0.7g/year) to R-22. Three sensitivity levels let users choose the right level for specific environments. Triple-redundant leak indication — a loud, fast beep; a flashing LED; and a relative digital leak size readout — help identify and characterize leaks in any setting. The RLD400’s automatic calibration and reset ensures accurate leak readings not distorted by ambient levels. In addition, a leak test vial containing a refrigerant sample allows users to confirm the instrument is operating correctly.
