Air Conditioning Gas Monitoring Systems
Various Control Panel options are available
Control panels are also available that cover small 4 transmitter systems up to more sophisticated 250 transmitter systems. All our control panels have internal memory to retain alarm history for trend diagnosis. All our control panels and transmitters can be connected to audio/visual indicators such as sounders and beacons which can also supply as part of a solution.

Typical question answered by our expert
There are few ways you can tell if your AC unit is low on refrigerant gas, the first is usually that the air supply from the unit will be a low flow. This then could lead to the AC unit blowing warmer air, as the refrigerant gas will not be present to absorb the heat. Generally, as the efficiency of the AC drops, you may notice a higher electrical supply consumption.
You mainly 2 types of gas detection technology to monitor for refrigerant leaks, these are semi- conductor sensors or Infra-Red inserts. Both have merits, semi-conductors are lower cost and will give you an indication of refrigerant gas in the atmosphere, but semi-conductor sensors can have cross sensitivity issues and low sensitivity at low ppm refrigerant levels. Infra-Red merits are that you can’t over saturate the sensor at high levels and accuracy at low level ppm refrigerant levels. One Infra- Red sensor negative is the slightly higher cost and gas type specific.
A refrigerant leak detector is a sensor that will detect refrigerant gas in the atmosphere, to ensure that you are alerted to rising or current alarm levels of gas which can cause headaches, nausea, skin irritation and difficulty breathing.
Refrigerant freon gas can cause severe lung issues, skin irritation, headaches, however these symptoms aren’t exhaustive. It is important that refrigerant gas is monitored to ensure you stay below the max level exposure limits.
Refrigerant gas leaks can occur from pipe degrading over time due to acid corrosion, this then allows the gas to escape the gas pipe path within the AC system. Another issue that can cause refrigerant leaks are loose fittings to the supply pipes or regulators for example.
