One of the most popular refrigerant leak detectors on the market, the Fieldpiece SRL8 detects all types of leaks, including all CFCs, HFCs and HCFsc, as well as blends. This heated diode detector is highly accurate and fast, and equally important to some, fully rechargeable (15-hour recharge). One a single charge, it lasts around two workdays, meaning even if you spent two entire days hunting leaks, this trusty little tool would still not let you down.
The Fieldpiece leak detector has a filter system that protects the sensor from moisture and other damaging contaminants. Speaking of the sensor, it’s connected to the body at the other end of the snout. It has three sensitivity levels – from 6.6 oz/yr to 0.1 oz/yr – so it’s definitely extremely sensitive, although more to some refrigerants than others. After every two seconds, the tool will automatically go to zero until a leak is found, but if you feel the need to set it to zero yourself, that’s possible too.
