New refrigerants for MGS-400


02 May 2019
Bacharach has added 22 new refrigerants for its MGS-400 gas detectors in commercial and industrial gas leak monitoring applications.  

The newly added refrigerants are R1234yf, R1234ze, R134a, R22, R32, R404a, R407a, R407C, R407f, R410a, R422, R422D, R427A, R434A, R448A, R449A, R450A, R452A, R454A, R454C, R507a and R513A. Support for additional gases are in development and will be released over the coming months. 
The MGS-400 series uses three different sensor types, depending on the measurement range, temperature and gas types when detecting for hazardous refrigerant leaks. Bacharach says the variety of sensor types offer significant user benefits, including flexibility with refrigerant leak detection and providing peace of mind when helping to protect personnel and achieve compliance with safety standards like ASHRAE 15, CSA-B52 and EN 378 inside of machinery rooms, mechanical equipment rooms, chiller plants, cold storage facilities and walk-in freezers. 

Other features include a mobile app interface for commissioning and maintenance without special tools and an added sensor life of 5–7 years with plug and play pre-calibrated sensor modules.
