Refrigerant analyzers

January 11, 2011

Neutronics Refrigerant Analysis has just received an innovations award for its new, advanced, Ultima ID Pro HVAC/R Refrigerant Analyzer, Model RI-700H. The new analyzer has been recognized as the best new HVACR tool in the Tools Category of the 2011 AHR Expo Innovation Awards Competition.

Neutronics' Ultima ID Pro HVAC/R Refrigerant Analyzer has been heralded as an indispensible front line tool for contractors, W/D consolidators, and reclaimers, and is one the newest cost-savings tools available to the HVACR professional. This portable analyzer quickly and accurately identifies the type of refrigerant and protects against refrigerant contamination. It also provides for convenient pre-screening, which can help 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.

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 Ultima ID Pro is 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.
