This week, thinking my car needed an oil change but unwilling to check for myself I discovered my magical car was able to check for me. I am not sure exactly how, but I imagine it is a small electric sensor that is able to send a notification to my dashboard when I do actually need an oil change. Like I said, magic,… or electronics, whichever you prefer. Electronics have made monitoring and checking various items and situations very simple in the past few decades. One other way they can assist is through electronic leak detection equipment.
Electronic leak detectors can assist in the monitoring of liquids and gases to make sure that the products and systems are running smoothly and safely. In many situations, this can be vital not only to the equipment function but also to making sure that the environment remains protected. Toxic and hazardous leaks in systems, event something that seems harmless like a refrigerator, can have dangerous consequences for human health and can cause depletion of the ozone. While small refrigerator leaks can be harmful, those used in large industries for coolant systems can be even more harmful. Simple monitoring of all systems is an easy solution.
As these products become further developed and more advanced, they could easily find leaks even faster. Current models are available in handheld options as well as models that can be connected to the equipment. With refrigerant leaks, they can quickly determine the various leaks that may be occurring such as R12, R22 or R134a so that the issues can be addressed. The most common models of leak detectors currently available are heated diode and corona discharge. Corona discharge detectors tend to be found the most often, however heated diode detectors are known for creating fewer false positive detections.
