Digital Refrigerant Leak Detector
The new Digital Refrigerant Leak Detector (RLD400) from General Tools & Instruments has a proprietary semiconductor sensor, and is built to detect all commercially available HFC, HFO, HC, HCFC, and CFC refrigerant gases, including many new ozone layer-friendly blends, such as R-22 and R-1234yf, approved under the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP).
This instrument is ideal for inspecting and maintaining mobile and stationary air conditioners, refrigerators, chillers, and heat pumps. It meets SAE J2791 and J2913 standards and European standard EN14624. The RLD400 effectively pinpoints leaks, providing these benefits:
· Prevents compressor, evaporator, and condenser damage caused by air and moisture entering a system.
· Saves money by precluding repeated system recharges and inefficient cooling operation.
· Helps large system operators meet U.S. Clean Air Act leak repair timetable standards.
· Inhibits further depletion of the ozone layer.
The RLD400’s lifespan of its proprietary semiconductor sensor is more than 300 hours of operation or 10 years of normal use. A true mechanical pump draws in samples, which increases sensitivity. Three sensitivity levels let users choose the right level for specific environments. Triple-redundant leak indication—a loud, fast beep; a bright flashing LED; and a relative digital leak size readout—make it easy to identify and characterize leaks in any setting.
The RLD400’s automatic calibration and reset ensures accurate leak readings not distorted by ambient levels. In addition, a leak test vial containing a refrigerant sample allows users to easily confirm the instrument is operating correctly. And with its durable construction and padded hard plastic carrying case, the RLD400 is built to survive punishing tasks and harsh environments.

PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate
REGENESIS, a global leader in advanced technologies for contaminated site remediation, has announced PersulfOx Catalyzed Persulfate. This new environmental technology is a patented, sodium persulfate-based in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) reagent designed specifically for groundwater and soil remediation at contaminated sites, including brownfields.
Traditionally, sodium persulfate has been used and activated with the addition of a separate component such as heat, chelated metals, hydrogen peroxide, or a caustic base. These activation processes are inherently complex, costly and can pose certain health and safety risks. By design, PersulfOx simplifies the activation process and reduces on-site health and safety liability by offering environmental professionals a new, all-in-one reagent with a built-in catalyst. There is no hazardous activation process, and performance is equivalent to the best alternative persulfate treatments available today. In the field, the material is easily mixed with water and applied into the contaminated area using common subsurface injection techniques or soil mixing tools.
Additionally, the PersulfOx catalyst further increases the product’s effectiveness by providing a microscopic heterogeneous surface where the contaminant and oxidant can converge and oxidation reactions can occur repeatedly. This unique and highly efficient “surface-mediated oxidation” process, first introduced in 2007 with RegenOx, the company’s first ISCO technology, provides several contaminant-reducing benefits, including:
· Increased efficiency, as it brings oxidant and contaminant together, isolating the oxidation reaction from soil matrix effects,
· Direct chemical oxidation,
· The formation of sulfate-based free radicals which in turn oxidize the contaminant, and
· The formation of ancillary free radicals and other oxidizing species which destroy contaminants within the contaminated matrix.
Further details, including the PersulfOx brochure, product specifications, and access to technical bulletins, are available at the REGENESIS website.
