J2791 & J2913-Certified Refrigerant Leak Detector

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - August 26, 2015) - Tracer Products is at the forefront of leak detection technology. Finding refrigerant leaks saves time, money, and most importantly, the environment from harmful emissions. The revisions in SAE J2791 and SAE J2913 establish new certification procedures and new leak detection requirements for certification of electronic probe-type leak detectors.

Tracer Products' TP-9364 PRO-Alert™ IR electronic refrigerant leak detector is certified to meet the SAE J2791 and J2913 standards. It utilizes a state-of-the-art infrared sensor to accurately detect refrigerant leaks down to 0.1oz/year (3 g/year). A three-position sensitivity switch minimizes false triggering and allows for easy diagnosis of small, medium and large leaks. The unit is sensitive to R-12, R-134a, R-1234yf and other refrigerants.

Unlike heated sensors on competitors' units, the PRO-Alert IR's infrared sensor offers consistent response throughout its life. In addition, it will not become contaminated by exposure to large amounts of refrigerant. Sensor life is an incredible 1,000 hours or more. The unit's high-efficiency air sampling pump provides quicker response and quicker clearing ("zeroing"). A rubber-coated, flexible metal probe slithers easily into tight places and holds its position. An audible alarm and multiple LEDs help locate leaks fast.

The PRO-Alert IR specialty tool is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, which provides over six hours of use between charges. On-board diagnostics indicate charging status, and alert the user to a low battery condition or infrared sensor failure. The unit can also be used with an AC power adapter and a 12 VDC power adapter with cigarette lighter plug (included). All components are packed in a rugged plastic carrying case. The AC adapter is available in 120V, 230V, 240V and 100V versions.
