Bacharach refrigerant leak detectors are capable of identifying the presence of refrigerant leaks with a <a href="https://blog.mybacharach.com/news/low-leak-level-reduced/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">minimum detection level (MDL) of 1 ppm</a>. This means that your staff will be alerted to small leaks (leaks which would have gone undetected indefinitely by competing refrigerant leak detectors). before they cost you money.
