Modern refrigerant systems are designed to be efficient and leak free, but improper installations, inadvertent damage, or mechanical wear can result in leaks over time.
Refrigerant detectors from Bacharach help keeping the occupants comfortable in the conditioned spaces by providing early warning of refrigerant leaks over the service life of the HVAC system.
Very important is the continuous monitoring for refrigerants associated with high-efficiency, high volume refrigerant cooling and heating systems, such as VRF/VRV (Variable Refrigerant Flow/Variable Refrigerant Volume) sytems. These systems are often used in hotels, dormitories, hospitals, office buildings, and apartment buildings.
Large refrigerant leaks into occupied spaces can reach concentrations that pose a suffocation risk to the occupants. EN 378 and local codes such BREEAM have continually evolved to address the safe and environmentally conscious use of refrigerants.
The use of a Bacharach MVR-300 in occupied, conditioned spaces can detect a refrigerant leak well before the RCL (Refrigerant Concentration Limit).
