New Aquilar Refrigerant Gas Detector uses Innovative Technology
An innovative new refrigerant gas sensor that’s designed for use with air conditioning systems and heat pumps has been launched at this year’s London Build Expo by Diamond Controls’ supply partner Aquilar Ltd under their AquiTron brand.
Described as the next generation in gas sensor technology, the AquiTron AT-SRG offers accurate and reliable gas leak detection with interchangeable sensor heads for common refrigerants such as A1 gas (R410A), A2L gas (R32) or A3 hydrocarbon (like propane R290). The leak sensor uses molecular property spectrometer testing instead of traditional semi-conductor or infra-red technology, for dependable leak monitoring with no alarm interference from non-target gases such as hairsprays or deodorants.
Safeguarding people in occupied spaces
It’s been specifically designed to safeguard people in occupied spaces in both residential and commercial environments so is ideal for use in hotels, apartments, hospital rooms and offices. Its non-conspicuous faceplate is available in white or stainless steel so will seamlessly integrate into all decor.
Incredible 15+ year lifespan
One of the major benefits of the new gas sensor is the incredible lifespan of its head sensor, with an expected lifetime of 15+ years before replacement is required. Typically, gas sensors need to be changed every 2-4 years so the AT-SRG offers low cost of ownership over its life.
Easy installation and low maintenance
The AT-SRG is simple to install, set-up, and commission as no calibration is required. Designed for easy testing, the gas sensor comes with a plug-in alarm emulation module to replicate a leak. Choose between different gas monitoring types with plug and play interchangeable sensor heads.
Gas sensors are connected to leak detection alarm panels (including the Aquilar ECO-Leak range) for automatic audible and visual alarms and centralised monitoring via BMS systems if required.
Compliance and standards
Organisations using the AT-SRG can benefit from BREEAM credit towards Pol 01: impact of refrigerants. The sensor also has refrigerant safety compliance for BS EN 378: 2016.
F-Gas rules specify that refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems require mandatory leak test checks. The frequency of these can be reduced with the installation of a fixed leak detection system.
Protect and save cost
Gas leak monitoring sensors are essential safety systems for continuous monitoring of potentially harmful gas escape. The vital early alert you get can also help you control operating costs as a leaking unit can use up to 20% more electricity.
