Bacharach, a well-known provider of refrigerant management and refrigerant leak detection solutions, recently announced the release of a refrigerant leak reduction cost savings calculator. The calculator will enable heavy users of commercial refrigerant such as supermarkets, cold storage facilities, and food processing plants to evaluate the cost savings associated by reducing the amount of leaking refrigerant.
“With the high and increasing prices of some refrigerants, particularly from F-Gas regulations in Europe, implementing a proactive leak detection system and process can pay for itself in a matter of months,” said Tom Burniston, product manager for refrigerant leak detection, Bacharach Inc. “This leads to significant on-going savings. By reducing the refrigerant leak rate, users can not only reduce costs but also mitigate supply risks as prices continue to increase and refrigerant production decreases.”
To assist in leak rate reduction, Bacharach offers proprietary, non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensor technology to enable early detection of low-level leaks. The technology offers a minimum detection level of 1 parts per million (ppm) while providing a T-90 response time of only about six seconds, the time it takes to reach 90 percent of the maximum concentration reading.
