I am a Refrigeration Technician in Perth, Western Australia with over 20 years of experience across all aspects of commercial and domestic refrigeration. I was first introduced to the Bacharach PGM IR when I started with a major supermarket chain over 4 years ago, what can I say it has changed the way that I approach checking for leaks.
On my first experience using the PGM-IR we were searching for leaks within a supermarket whereby we were having issues with the low temp rack losing refrigerant. The PGM-IR with its display and its ability to read in PPM allows you to sweep through various sections of the store with ease, not only saving time and money but being able to close in on a leak quickly and efficiently. In this instance we had searched most of the store except pipework running from the rack system to 2 of Freezer rooms. Upon tracing the pipework from the plantroom to the rooms we followed the pipework with the PGM-IR.
