Refrigerant analyzer

July 28, 2010

Neutronics Refrigerant Analysis has launched its new Ultima ID Pro HVAC/R Refrigerant Analyzer, Model RI-700H, and noted that it has already started to ship units to customers. This portable analyzer quickly and accurately identifies the type of refrigerant and helps avoid costly refrigerant mixing during consolidation and reclamation.

The Ultima ID Pro works on a variety of refrigerants, including R22, R134A, R404A, R407C, R410A, and Hydrocarbons and reduces the need for costly and time-consuming gas chromatography. The Ultima ID Pro delivers results in less than three minutes at an accuracy of +/- 2% or better.

According to Peter Coll, Refrigerant Analysis Division Manager for Neutronics Inc., “As new refrigerants are introduced to the market, the potential for mixing those refrigerants with the R22 supply will increase and usher in a financial penalty that will affect all levels of distribution, from the contractor to the reclaimer. The Neutronics Ultima ID Pro HVAC/R Refrigerant Analyzer will help solve this problem and prove to be an indispensible front line tool for contractors, W/D consolidators, and reclaimers."

The Ultima ID Pro offers the widest range of refrigerant analysis available in a portable instrument. It easily identifies more than a dozen refrigerants with a component breakdown of the blend ratios for the most common HVAC refrigerants. This allows the consolidator to know the quality of the refrigerant before it goes to the reclaimer and eliminates unnecessary disposal costs for the contractor. The Ultima ID Pro also provides the reclaimer with a quick means of sorting a wide variety of refrigerants by both type and quality.

The Neutronics Ultima ID Pro uses Neutronics leading edge infrared refrigerant gas analysis technology to provide fast and accurate identification. It features an innovative and ergonomic design in a compact, self-contained, and extremely portable package.

The Ultima ID Pro is designed to be simple to use and has an extra large, easy to read LCD display, soft keys, and a built-in printer. It is ruggedly constructed with a molded ABS housing and weighs less than 10 lbs. The unit can operate from an 110/ 220 VAC power source or optional built-in rechargeable power pack. Operating temperature is +50 °F to +110 °F. Approvals include UL, CE, and CUL certifications.
