Tracer Products says its TP-9364 PRO-Alert 2791 electronic refrigerant leak detector utilizes an infrared sensor to detect refrigerant leaks down to 0.1oz/year (3 g/year). Its three-position sensitivity switch is designed to minimize false triggering and to be sensitive to R-12, R-134a and all other HFC refrigerants.

The PRO-Alert 2791’s infrared sensor will not become contaminated by exposure to large amounts of refrigerant, according to the company, and its rubber-coated flexible metal probe is designed to slither easily into tight places and hold its position; an audible alarm and multiple LEDs help locate leaks.

Tracerline says the PRO-Alert 2791 is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, which provides more than six hours of use between charges; onboard diagnostics indicate charging status and alert the user to low battery or infrared sensor failure. The unit also can be used with a 120 VAC power adapter and a 12 VDC power adapter with cigarette lighter plug, which is included; all components are packed in a plastic carrying case.
