Understanding Refrigerant Leak Detection
Join Bacharach and refrigerant leak detection expert Tom Burniston for a free educational webinar. The goal of this presentation, entitled “The Fundamentals of Refrigerant Leak Detection,” is to help attendees gain a better understanding of the common drivers behind the adoption of a refrigerant leak detection program and the most common sensor technologies used to achieve each desired outcome.
Motivations, Technologies and Applications
Companies require refrigerant leak detection solutions for a variety of reasons. They might be seeking to comply with safety regulations (ASHRAE 15, EN:378, B-52), improve their environmental impact or reduce the economic impact (refrigerant costs, shrinkage / spoilage, utility costs, equipment wear) of refrigerant leaks. During this presentation, we will cover the market drivers for refrigerant leak detection, key applications for leak detection and how Bacharach’s product portfolio compliments the needs of each.
The following slides are an example of the content which will be covered during this webinar.
What Attendees will Learn During the Webinar
This webinar is intended for an intermediate audience and may assume that attendees have some basic knowledge of refrigeration leak detection or refrigeration applications. Attendees will learn
- Motivations – The reasons you might consider installing a leak detection solution.
- Technologies – The different types of refrigerant sensor technologies (non-dispersive infrared, semiconductor, electrochemical, catalytic bead) and understanding the pros and cons of each.
- Applications – How different sensor technologies can be deployed to achieve your desired outcome.
