Fieldpiece Instruments Refrigerant Leak Detectors
Fieldpiece Instruments, an industry leader in tool and test instruments for HVACR professionals, has announced the launch of two new refrigerant leak detectors, Infrared model DR82 and Heated Diode model DR58. The two new Fieldpiece leak detectors are highly sensitive, durable and reliable.
Designed for field use, they are easy to read in bright sun or low indoor light with large, bright blue LCD displays for leak information. The displays include bar graphs and numerical values. In addition, they have long lasting batteries for a full day of testing, and both the leak detectors and the included case are rugged and made to last. Designed with the HVACR pro in mind, the new leak detectors include uncompromising features such as high sensitivity, multiple refrigerant detection, and audible alarms as well as a flashing lighted tip for an easy visual indicator.
The Infrared model DR82, gives technicians superior sensitivity in the field — <0.03-ounces per year. To pinpoint the leak, the user sweeps the area with the DR82 IR Leak Detector resulting in the unit sensing a change in refrigerant levels so the user doesn’t have to manually change the sensitivity. The DR82 has the most consistent leak detection across all refrigerants making it easy for the technician to locate the leak in any situation.
The DR58 Heated Diode Leak Detector has a state-of-the-art heated diode sensor that is very sensitive to CFCs, HFCs, HCFCs, HFOs, and blends, delivering sensitivity better than 0.03-ounces per year. The DR58 triggers on absolute refrigerant concentration. The instrument defaults to auto zeroing mode when switched on and refreshes every two seconds until a leak is detected. Technicians can also switch to manual zeroing mode to help pinpoint leaks, even in contaminated areas.
“Finding and fixing leaks on a system not only helps eliminate the venting of refrigerants into the atmosphere, it is another way to make sure charge related problems are minimized between scheduled maintenance calls. We now offer the best infrared and heated diode leak detectors in the industry,” said Charlotte Loomis, Sr. Marketing Manager, Fieldpiece.
