Bacharach, a provider of refrigerant management and refrigerant leak detection solutions announces the release of a <a href="https://blog.mybacharach.com/articles/refrigerant-leak-reduction-savings-calculator/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">refrigerant leak reduction cost savings calculator</a>. The calculator will enable heavy users of commercial refrigerant such as supermarkets, cold storage facilities and food processing plants to evaluate the cost savings associated by reducing the amount of leaking refrigerant.

“With the high and increasing prices of some refrigerants, particularly from F-Gas regulations in Europe, implementing a proactive leak detection system and process can pay for itself in a matter of months. This leads to significant on-going savings,” said Mr. Tom Burniston, Product Manager for Refrigerant Leak Detection of Bacharach, Inc. “By reducing the refrigerant leak rate, users can not only reduce costs but also mitigate supply risks as prices continue to increase and refrigerant production decreases,” he said.
To assist in leak rate reduction, Bacharach offers proprietary, non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensor technology to enable early detection of low-level leaks, setting the industry standard at 1 ppm while providing a fast T-90 response time of only about 6 seconds, the time it takes to reach 90% of the maximum concentration reading. The Bacharach HGM-MZ, Multi-Zoned fixed refrigerant leak detector uses NDIR technology and is the most widely deployed system for proactive leak detection, able to detect the presence of over 60 refrigerant gases, the highest in the industry. Using the same NDIR sensor technology, the Bacharach PGM-IR is a portable refrigerant leak detector that also enables the early detection of low-level refrigerant leaks, able to isolate leaks after detection by the HGM-MZ.
