NEW YORK — The new, made in America Digital Dual Mode Refrigerant Leak Detector (RLD440) from General Tools & Instruments offers HVACR technicians and contractors advanced technologies that make leak detection easier and more accurate. The RLD440 is built to detect all commercially available HFC, HFO, HC, HCFC, and CFC refrigerant gases. It’s ideal for inspecting and maintaining mobile and stationary air conditioners, refrigerators, chillers, and heat pumps.
The RLD440’s ultraviolet (UV) detection mode allows technicians and contractors to quickly determine if a refrigerant gas leak exists. After charging a system with fluorescent dye, technicians and contractors use the RLD440 to scan system components with UV light from three LEDs mounted on the end of the instrument’s grip. Any dye escaping from the system will glow a bright yellow-green.
With its durable construction and padded hard plastic carrying case, the RLD440 is built to survive punishing tasks and harsh environments.
With advanced leak detection, best-in-class sensor lifespan and sensitivities, quadruple-redundant leak indication and other features, technicians and contractors can rely on the RLD440 to help:
- Prevent compressor, evaporator and condenser damage caused by air and moisture entering a system
- Save money by precluding repeated system recharges and inefficient cooling operation
- Meet U.S. Clean Air Act leak repair timetable standards (for large system operators)
- Inhibit ozone layer depletion
