Bacharach Announces Updates for Continuous Refrigerant Monitor Allowing Early Detection of Refrigerant Gas Leaks Down to 1ppm
NEW KENSINGTON, PA – April 21, 2017 – Bacharach has reduced the default low “leak” alarm level on their newly revised HGM-MZ; Halogen Monitor Multi-Zone while extending the default sample line length on this active continuous refrigerant monitor. The recently introduced product upgrade reduces the leak alarm default value level to 10ppm and extends the sample line lengths per zone to 450 ft (137.16 Meters).
“Our MZ will detect refrigerant leaks as low as 1ppm. Other instruments just can’t do that.” Said Mr. Tom Burniston, Product Manager, Fixed Instruments. “We saw a need for our customer’s within the groceries and supermarkets to have the instrument set up to make use of this capability without reconfiguring it, and made the change for them. It will monitor over 16 different sampling points, with the possibility for extending the number of sample points to 48 with the introduction of splitter kits on each zone,” he said.
The newly reduced low “leak” alarm setting enhances the ability of the HGM-MZ to detect leaks early with “out of the box” factory settings, enabling the reduction of refrigerant loss, while reducing emissions of environmentally harmful greenhouse gases, and enhancing refrigeration system efficiencies, reducing energy costs and minimizing the risk of lost inventories, such as produce within supermarkets.
Bacharach is committed to delivering customers refrigerant leak detection instrumentation that not only exceeds performance expectations, but is quick and easy to install, configure and commission. The extended sample line length enhances this commitment, with a default setting that covers the typical maximum length used in most commercial refrigeration and food retail refrigerant detection installations. This helps to ensure that a valid sample from each monitoring zone reaches the HGM-MZ’s proprietary precision NDIR (non-dispersive infrared) sensor, enabling the early detection of leaks.
