    Refrigerant leak detector



    Usually I have little trouble finding leaks but this one is confounding me so I am looking to buy an electronic leak detector. I have no idea which ones to look at so any advise would be great. What pops up on tinternet is stuff like the Fieldpiece SRL8 or various Inficon and Robinair units. Thoughts?

    I have had several makes through the years and the srl8 to me has been the best ,great at finding even the smallest leaks , good battery life when charged , visual as well as acoustic indicator (the beeping can be muted) and most importantly very sturdy with the rubber shroud .

    .

    Working for a wholesaler I had access to every concevable type
    and method of leak detector on the market. I used to be given
    them for testing, to see if I could break them and the one I always
    used to use and the one I now own of my own is a Javac Tek-Mate
    Leak Detector. Not sure how expensive they are but they are as
    good as you can get (in my opinion) and they are easy to maintain.

    I do prefer the Javac deteck maybe spelt wrong. a little more expensive than the tek mate but survived a tumble of the top of the van within speed limits of course
