  • Features To Look For

    When it comes to maintaining safety in the industrial setting, having adequate leak detection is a key factor. Gas leaks in this environment can go from dangerous to deadly in a matter of seconds and early detection is the best way to prevent gas related disasters. Having adequate leak detection equipment is crucial in this regard, and there are a variety of suppliers and devices to choose from. It is important to do your research and find what equipment will work best for your particular uses. Most electronic leak detectors...

  • Gas Leaks in Boston

    Researchers from Duke and Boston University recently discovered thousands of gas leaks in Boston. One of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston sits atop a maze of aging pipelines that delivers fuel to the residences and businesses of the city. The study has revealed the great need for repairs as these leaks could lead to fires and, in some cases, explosions. The research team covered 785 miles of road in Boston; and, with the use of a GPS and a leak detector that measures methane, they pinpointed 3,356...

  • Electronic Options for Quick and Easy Results

    This week, thinking my car needed an oil change but unwilling to check for myself I discovered my magical car was able to check for me. I am not sure exactly how, but I imagine it is a small electric sensor that is able to send a notification to my dashboard when I do actually need an oil change. Like I said, magic, or electronics, whichever you prefer. Electronics have made monitoring and checking various items and situations very simple in the past few decades. One other way they can...

  • Electronics Leak Detectors Solving Your Problems

    Any kind of leak that is happening is never a good sign no matter what the situation is. Some leaks can even take a lot of time and effort to find where the source of the leak is. Gas leaks are the most dangerous because sometimes they can be hard to detect and breathing in those toxins can be very harmful to out health. The three most common gas leaks are halogen, helium and freon. These gases can be leaking from units like refrigerators and central air systems. Homeowners need...

Industry Information

Electronic Leak Detectors

Electronic leak detectors use heated or ionized sensors to locate refrigerant leaks. It is important to identify refrigerant gas leaks as they can increase ozone depletion and, in large amounts, cause heart problems when inhaled by humans. Refrigerant gases are commonly used in industrial and commercial coolant systems.

Electronic leak detectors are the most sensitive mechanisms of all the leak detectors and provide the fastest path to identifying and locating a gas leak. They are used more often than the other common leak detection systems, ultrasonic leak detectors, gas detectors and flame ionization leak detectors. The electronic model can be programmed to identify a specific refrigerant or to include multiple possibilities. R12, R22 and R134a are among the most common refrigerants to be identified by electronic leak detectors, although R134a is more difficult to detect even with electronics. These numbers stand for three common gas leaks: helium, Freon and halogen. Many electronic leak detectors are handheld, to make it as easy and inexpensive as possible for owners of homes and businesses to make sure the air they breathe is safe. The danger of refrigerant gas leaks, to the health of individuals as well as to the equipment or furniture in the vicinity, can be devastating. A vast variety of industries, including medical, industrial manufacturing, aerospace and automotive shops run the risk of leaks, not to mention any home or office with a central air system or refrigerator.   

While nearly all types of leak detectors involve electronic components, heated diode and corona discharge are the two main types of electronic leak detectors. The most common electric run mechanism uses the corona discharge technology. A high voltage corona, or circle, is created in the sensing tip. When entered into the field around the sensor, refrigerants break the corona barrier and trigger an alarm to notify the user of the leak. Despite their popularity, the major flaw of corona discharge leak detectors is that the corona barrier can be broken by other particles such as dust and moisture in the air, causing a false alarm. The heated diode electronic leak detectors, although they function in much the same way, have fewer false positives because of the heated sensor. The heated sensors of this particular detector are triggered by absolute concentration, which causes alerts to increase as refrigerant amounts increase indicating proximity to the leak.
