Bacharach announced the addition of 22 halogen refrigerants for its MGS-400 gas detectors in commercial and industrial gas leak monitoring applications. The newly added halogen refrigerants include: R1234yf, R1234ze, R134a, R22, R32, R404a, R407a, R407C, R407f, R410a, R422, R422D, R427A, R434A, R448A, R449A, R450A, R452A, R454A, R454C, R507a, and R513A. Support for additional gases are in development and will be released over the next few months.
The MGS-400 series product family uses three different sensor types, depending on the measurement range, temperature, and gas types when detecting for hazardous refrigerant leaks. According to the company, the variety of sensor types within the product line offer significant user benefits, including flexibility with refrigerant leak detection and providing peace of mind when helping to protect personnel and achieve compliance with safety standards like ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52, and EN 378 inside of machinery rooms, mechanical equipment rooms, chiller plants, cold storage facilities, and walk-in freezers.
Other user benefits include a mobile app interface for commissioning and maintenance without special tools and an added sensor life of five to seven years with plug and play pre-calibrated sensor modules for quick sensor replacement. Calibration certificates can be generated from the mobile app and sent by email or stored in the cloud.
