Tru Pointe IR Refrigerant Leak Detector

Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector

Bacharach’s Tru Pointe® IR Refrigerant Leak Detector is a sensitive, accurate and low-cost infrared refrigerant leak detector solution.

  • Detects refrigerants with the sensitivity and accuracy of infrared but at the cost of older sensor technologies
  • Flexible probe (15 in.) with probe extensions (incl. “needle” probe) for finding leaks in tight spaces
  • Visual and audible indicators include an LED scale and a speaker (with mute option)

The Tru Pointe IR has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase. However, we still provide spare parts, servicing and support.
As an alternative solution to your refrigerant leak detection needs, we suggest you try the H-10 PRO or the powerful PGM-IR portable refrigerant monitor that finds leaks like no other.

The Tru Pointe® IR is a handheld, infrared refrigerant leak detector that utilizes a long-life infrared sensor in a low-cost package to effectively pinpoint leaks of CFC, HFC, HCFC and HFO refrigerants. Ready for use in 30 seconds and with 8 hours of battery life in a single charge, the Tru Pointe® IR is truly a go-to tool.

The Tru Pointe® IR infrared refrigerant leak detector has a long, flexible neck and the kit includes probe extensions (including a “needle” probe) for detecting leaks in hard-to-reach areas. Selectable sensitivity settings and an LED scale shows relative leak sizes while the auto-zeroing feature enables leak detection in backgrounds where target gas is present. Includes 1 year warranty that also covers the IR sensor.
