ORANGE, Calif. — Fieldpiece Instruments received a Pro Tool Innovation Award for the Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector DR82. The Fieldpiece Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector DR82 won in the Test and Measurement Category.

According to the judges, “Detecting refrigeration leaks comes with different challenges than water and moisture leaks. A couple of things really stood out to our voters on the Fieldpiece Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector DR82 to help deal with those challenges. First, it doesn’t trigger a false positive thanks to soap or oil. Plus, it’s more than 20 times more sensitive than soap bubbles with a sensitivity level of <0.03 oz/yr. Wrap it all up in a compact handheld unit with an easy-to-read screen and your refrigerant leak detection is faster and easier than ever before.”

“The Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector, DR82 brings a higher level of performance and offers a new, bright blue backlit LCD screen that is easy to read," said Rachel Newport, Director of Marketing. "To understand more details about the leak, our Infrared Refrigerant Leak Detector has a numerical leak size indicator, bar graph and features a lighted tip, so you can see the location of the leak. We are honored to have been voted one of the best in the Test and Measurement category by this expert panel of judges.”
