Telaire Makes A-List Refrigerant Leak Detection a Reality: New NDIR Technology Targets A2L Refrigerants

Get ready for a paradigm shift in refrigerant leak detection. Telaire, a leading innovator in CO2 sensor technology, has announced a groundbreaking development: the adaptation of its Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) technology for reliable and precise detection of A2L refrigerants. This game-changer promises to revolutionize safety and compliance for the growing adoption of this next-generation, lower-GWP (Global Warming Potential) cooling solution.

A Rising Star with a Hidden Risk:

A2L refrigerants, such as R32 and its blends, are rapidly gaining traction in HVAC and refrigeration applications due to their reduced environmental impact compared to traditional HFCs (Hydrofluorocarbons). However, their mildly flammable nature necessitates robust leak detection systems to comply with international safety regulations like UL-60335-2-40.

NDIR Enters the A2L Arena:

Traditionally, leak detection for A2L refrigerants relies on semiconductor or electrochemical sensors. While effective, these technologies can be prone to false alarms and require regular calibration. This is where Telaire’s NDIR technology steps in.

Advantages of NDIR for A2L Detection:

  • Specificity: NDIR sensors target the unique infrared signature of specific A2L refrigerants, minimizing false alarms from other gases or environmental factors.
  • High Accuracy: Telaire’s NDIR technology boasts impressive accuracy levels, ensuring even minute leaks are detected promptly.
  • Low Drift: Unlike other sensor types, NDIR sensors exhibit minimal drift over time, reducing the need for frequent calibration and maintenance.
  • Durable and Reliable: Telaire’s NDIR sensors are built to withstand demanding HVAC environments, offering long-term reliability and peace of mind.

Unlocking A-List Potential:

Telaire’s NDIR-based A2L leak detection solution not only enhances safety compliance but also empowers wider adoption of A2L refrigerants. With robust and reliable leak detection in place, manufacturers, installers, and building owners can confidently embrace these lower-GWP options, contributing significantly to climate change mitigation efforts.
