Bacharach Offers CO2 Leak Detection Instrument for Cold Storage and Machinery Rooms

Leading refrigerant and gas leak detection systems supplier Bacharach is pleased to announce its new CO2 leak monitoring system, which has been carefully optimised for use in industrial and retail refrigeration applications.

The system has been introduced in response to the recent increase in the use of CO2 as a natural refrigerant due to its low environmental impact, as well as tightening HFC (hydrofluorocarbon) regulations.

This instrument is selective, taking into consideration both response times and operating temperatures in these applications.

For example, if you have a walk-in cold room or freezer with a room volume of 1000ft3 / 28.3m3, depending on the leak rate and air exchange rate within 5 minutes that space can surpass the Occupation Exposure Limit (OEL) recommendation of 5,000ppm, a level to which workers should not be exposed, or it can surpass the ILDH (Immediate Danger to Life or Health) level of 40,000ppm and would be immediately hazardous to personnel in the space.

Bacharach’s instrument is also appropriately specified for use in the operating temperatures required within refrigeration applications.

The Bacharach sensor is rated for use at temperatures as low as -40°C / -40°F.

Sensors that are not designed to perform in this environment may be inoperable or provide inaccurate CO2 readings.

Bacharach refrigerant leak detection instruments are specifically designed for the application to effectively support the user requirements for which they were intended.
