Bacharach widens refrigerant detection capability
USA: Bacharach has added 22 HFO, HCFC and HFC refrigerants for its MGS-400 gas detectors in commercial and industrial gas leak monitoring applications.
The newly added refrigerants include: R1234yf, R1234ze, R134a, R22, R32, R404A, R407A, R407C, R407F, R410A, R422, R422D, R427A, R434A, R448A, R449A, R450A, R452A, R454A, R454C, R507A, R513A.
The company says that support for additional gases will be released over the next few months.
The MGS-400 series product family uses three different sensor types, depending on the measurement range, temperature and gas types when detecting for hazardous refrigerant leaks. Sensor life is 5-7 years with plug and play pre-calibrated sensor modules offering quick and simple sensor replacement.
The sensors are compliant with safety standards like ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52 and EN 378 inside of machinery rooms, mechanical equipment rooms, chiller plants, cold storage facilities and walk-in freezers.
A mobile app interface allows easy commissioning and maintenance without special tools. It also generates calibration certificates.
A Modbus RTU interface and analog and relay outputs enable easy safety alarming and automation control.
