UK: TQ Environmental has launched a new refrigerant leak detection sensor and area alarm panel.
Compliant with EN378 and BREEAM accreditation, the TQ31 is described as a stand-alone, single-point refrigerant detector and alarm unit ideal for room monitoring. It is specifically designed to monitor for the build up of refrigerant gases from air conditioning systems.
Being resistant to cross sensitivity from hairspray and deodorants, it is said to be suitable for use in hotel or office applications.
Although designed as a single point, self-contained unit, it can also be connected to the new TQ32 Area Alarm panel for remote monitoring and group alarms. The TQ31 is fitted with simple LED indication and internal sounder, which can be disabled when remote monitoring. The sensor can be used individually or as part of a group of sensors monitoring a complex.
Combined with the TQ31 sensor, the TQ32 Area Alarm Panel enables group monitoring of individual rooms for common refrigerants used in air conditioning systems or CO2 build up. Designed for hotel or office use, a single alarm panel can accommodate up to 64 individual sensor inputs.The 3 digit LED display shows individual room numbers. Configurable alarm outputs can provide plant trip signals and alert the reception desk, via an optional TQ34 indicator panel or third party alarm.
