Tracer Products says its TP-9360 Pro-Alert, a portable refrigerant leak detector, features high-performance heated-diode sensor technology to accurately detect refrigerant leaks as small as 0.03 to 0.06 ounces per year.

The Pro-Alert is designed with dual-sensitivity controls – a high-sensitivity setting when initially checking the general leak area, and a low-sensitivity setting to hone in on the exact leak site. It is self-calibrating to neutralize background contamination and is sensitive to both R-12 and R-134a refrigerants, according to the company.

The 17-inch-long cordless device has a chrome-plated, flexible metal probe designed to easily slither into tight spots and hold its position for more thorough inspection. It includes a built-in positive displacement pump that draws a test sample into the detector for fast, accurate sensing, Tracer says.

The Pro-Alert is powered by two D-cell alkaline batteries (included) and comes packed in a rugged plastic carrying case. For more information, go to
