Refrigerant management can enhance refrigeration efficiency, environmental protection and reduce the cost of repairing leaks. Refrigerant monitors detecting levels as low as 1 ppm can detect refrigerant leaks early in machinery rooms, from display cases on the store floor and in storage areas, helping to protect produce and deliver efficient refrigeration.

Modern refrigerant systems are designed to be efficient and leak free, but improper installations, inadvertent damage, or mechanical wear can result in leaks over time. The MVR-300 refrigerant detector helps to keep the occupants comfortable in the conditioned spaces by providing early warning of refrigerant leaks over the service life of the HVAC system.

Human safety is a common reason for refrigerant leak detection in cold rooms and walk-in freezers. This is because refrigerant leaks can create a risk of asphyxiation in an enclosed space. Bacharach has a number of solutions for refrigeration systems using HFC refrigerants and those using natural refrigerants such as CO2, assisting in compliance with regulations including ASHRAE 15 and EN378.

Refrigerant leak detection in machinery rooms is typically required for regulatory compliance with codes including EN378, F-Gas and ASHRAE 15. Cost-effective refrigerant leak detection can help businesses to comply with legislation and identify when refrigerant leaks must be repaired.

Ammonia (NH3) is commonly used as a refrigerant in large industrial cold storage facilities. It presents risks of toxicity and explosion if gas leaks are undetected. Ammonia leak detection systems can be installed to help mitigate these risks and ensure safety.

Refrigeration in data centers is important to prevent overheating of electrical equipment. Effective refrigerant leak detection can help to ensure efficient cooling by minimizing leaks, protecting valuable equipment and data. Sensors are available which are not affected by cleaning agents typically used in these environments.

Low power refrigerant leak detectors can be installed in vehicles for transporting refrigerated products, indicating when there is a refrigerant leak requiring repair to ensure the continued operation and performance of the refrigerated vehicle.

Self-containing multi-sensor refrigerant detectors can provide an effective standalone leak detection system for small and large chiller installations, delivering compliance with regulation, enhanced safety and improved refrigeration efficiency.
