Bacharach updates refrigerant monitor

Bacharach has reduced the default low “leak” alarm level on its newly revised HGM-MZ (Halogen Monitor Multi-Zone) while extending the default sample line length on this active continuous refrigerant monitor.

The recently introduced product upgrade reduces the leak alarm default value level to 10 ppm and extends the sample line lengths per zone to 450 feet (137.16 meters).

“Our MZ will detect refrigerant leaks as low as 1 ppm. Other instruments just can’t do that,” said Tom Burniston, product manager, fixed instruments. “We saw a need for our customers within the groceries and supermarkets to have the instrument set up to make use of this capability without reconfiguring it, and made the change for them. It will monitor over 16 different sampling points, with the possibility for extending the number of sample points to 48 with the introduction of splitter kits on each zone.”

The newly reduced low “leak” alarm setting enhances the ability of the HGM-MZ to detect leaks early with “out of the box” factory settings. This means less refrigerant loss, while reducing emissions of environmentally harmful greenhouse gases, and enhancing refrigeration system efficiencies, reducing energy costs and minimizing risk of lost inventories.

Bacharach is committed to delivering refrigerant leak detection instrumentation that not only exceeds performance expectations, but also is easy to install, configure and commission. The extended sample line length enhances this commitment, with a default setting that covers the typical maximum length used in most commercial refrigeration and food retail refrigerant detection installations. This helps ensure that a valid sample from each monitoring zone reaches the HGM-MZ’s proprietary precision NDIR (non-dispersive infrared) sensor, enabling early detection of leaks.
