J2791-Certified Refrigerant Leak Detector

Tracer Products has unveiled the TP-9364 PRO-Alert 2791, an electronic refrigerant leak detector that is certified to meet the new SAE J2791 standard. It utilizes a state-of-the-art infrared sensor to accurately detect refrigerant leaks down to 0.1oz/year (3 g/year). A three-position sensitivity switch minimizes false triggering and allows for easy diagnosis of small, medium and large leaks. The unit is sensitive to R-12, R-134a, R-1234yf and all other HFC refrigerants.

Unlike heated sensors on competitors’ units, the PRO-Alert 2791’s infrared sensor offers consistent response throughout its life. In addition, it will not become contaminated by exposure to large amounts of refrigerant. Sensor life is an incredible 1,000 hours or more! The unit’s high-efficiency air sampling pump provides quicker response and quicker clearing (“zeroing”). A rubber-coated, flexible metal probe slithers easily into tight places and holds its position. An audible alarm and multiple LEDs help locate leaks fast.

The PRO-Alert 2791 is powered by a rechargeable NiMH battery, which provides over six hours of use between charges. On-board diagnostics indicate charging status, and alert the user to low battery or infrared sensor failure. The unit can also be used with an AC power adapter and a 12 VDC power adapter with cigarette lighter plug (included). All components are packed in a rugged plastic carry case. The AC adapter is available in 120V, 230V, 240V and 100V versions.
