Tracer introduces portable refrigerant leak detector

Monday, May 10, 2010

WESTBURY, N.Y. — Tracer Products has introduced the TP-9360 PRO-Alert, a portable refrigerant leak detector that features high-performance heated-diode sensor technology to accurately detect refrigerant leaks down to 0.25 oz per year (7 g/year).

The PRO-Alert features dual-sensitivity controls — a high-sensitivity setting when initially checking the general leak area and a low-sensitivity setting to hone in on the exact leak site.

It is self-calibrating to neutralize background contamination, sensitive to both R-12 and R-134a refrigerants and certified to meet SAE J1627, according to a company news release.

Its variable-intensity audible alarm and flashing LED help pinpoint leaks fast, company officials said.

The cordless, compact PRO-Alert is specifically designed to make leak detection efficient and easy.

According to the release, the 17-inch long, chrome-plated, flexible metal probe easily slithers into tight spots and holds its position for more thorough inspection.

The device includes a powerful, built-in positive displacement pump that draws a test sample into the detector for fast, accurate sensing.

The PRO-Alert comes complete with sensor, replacement filters and two D-cell alkaline batteries (included), conveniently packed in a rugged plastic carrying case.
