Product: Chillgard® 5000 Refrigerant Leak Monitor

Description: Designed for building mechanical rooms, the product reads down to the 1 ppm level. It provides an early response to HVAC refrigerant gas leaks, which allows maintenance crews to respond more quickly and to avoid the consequences and costs of hazardous gas leaks. The device can be configured to monitor up to six different field-selectable refrigerants and with a choice of 4, 8, or 16 sampling points. It features the company’s photoacoustic infrared (PAIR) sensor technology, which is largely unaffected by temperature or humidity, to reduce drift and increase accuracy without frequent adjustment or maintenance. It has been independently third-party tested to the 1 ppm level over temperatures of 32-122°F and 0-95% relative humidity levels. Should a refrigerant leak occur, the product provides a clear visual and audible signal to indicate there is a potentially dangerous, environmentally harmful leak. The expanded library of available gases now includes 38 of the industry’s most common refrigerants, monitored over an operating range of 0 to 1,000 ppm. Sensor response time at less than 90% of gas reading is under 70 seconds. Built-in diagnostics support predictive maintenance for worry-free use.
