Spectronics Corporation has introduced the ELD-1000 PRO-Alert, a portable refrigerant leak detector that features high-performance heated-diode sensor technology to accurately detect refrigerant leaks as small as 0.03 to 0.06 ounces/year.

The PRO-Alert features dual-sensitivity controls — a high-sensitivity setting when initially checking the general leak area, and a low-sensitivity setting to hone in on the exact leak site. It is self-calibrating to neutralize background contamination; is sensitive to CFC, HCFC, and HFC refrigerants; and eliminates the need to reset or switch for different refrigerants.

The cordless, compact PRO-Alert is specifically designed to make leak detection efficient and easy. Simply turn it on and it's ready for inspection — instantly. Its 17-inch (43-cm), chrome-plated, flexible metal probe easily slithers into tight spots and holds its position for more thorough inspection. It includes a powerful, built-in positive displacement pump that draws a test sample into the detector for fast, accurate sensing.

The PRO-Alert is powered by two D-cell alkaline batteries (included), and comes packed in a plastic carrying case.
