Freeze- and refrigeration companies save
time and costs in the future.
For leakage monitoring in refrigerators
and freezers, you do not need to hire specialist companies for
Coolants are often very toxic and harmful to the environment.
Therefore undesirable leaks of refrigerants must be avoided.
Gas detectors in the immediate vicinity of the plant continuously detect
unwanted gas leaks.
In connection with gas leak units and its gas
detectors and associated warning devices, people are primarily
protected, but also the cooling plant itself.
Both in supermarkets with air conditioning,
in breweries or at vineyards - even the smallest leaks must be
immediately detected, located and reported.
The gas detectors from the AP are specially
optimized for different refrigerants working very selectively in the
The continuous leakage check is mandatory
according to EN 378 for systems with a capacity of more than 50 kgs.
Mostly, detectors operate according to the semiconductor principle,
on electrochemical or infrared basis.
Semiconductor detectors that reach an ammonia
air mixture cause a change in conductivity, which is converted by
electronics into a signal.
Conductivity is dependent on the ammonia
concentration in the air.
When the preset alarm levels are exceeded,
an alarm is triggered.
Electrochemical detectors are also used. They
are generally more expensive than semiconductor detectors, but
have a lower cross-sensitivity and are mainly used where the
influence of substances other than ammonia can trigger false alarms.

Important national and international
All in all, refrigeration and air
conditioning systems have important international, national and EU
regulations for the use of virtually all known refrigerant gases.
These rules aim at minimizing the risks in
the three main areas that affect human health and safety, the ozone
depletion and other environmental impacts as well as potential
damage to property from fire or explosion.
For operators and their cooling and air
conditioning technicians and service partners, there is a fourth
factor that is equally important from a practical perspective,
The leakage of refrigerant costs money.
The cost of refrigerant gases has risen
sharply over the past decade, and most companies in the
refrigeration and air conditioning industry only know too well that
filling up coolant leaks can reach up to 70% of annual sales.
Different solutions for refrigerant
Automatikprodukter market perfectly matched detectors, control and
warning systems that can be combined in many ways for monitoring and
This ensures optimum protection for people in
critical situations in confined spaces.
Individually configurable and flexible
integrated solutions come from AP and are available in a variety of
detectors have a temperature control circuit and an internal heating
element to maintain the detector within its normal operating range
even if the temperature in the refrigerator/freezer storage is as
low as -35 degrees.
The detector's response time is 10 seconds.
The new replacement detector XChange
Gas detectors are generally reliable and resilient, but have a
limited service life and must be checked at least once a year,
maintained and calibrated.
Previously, you had to hire an authorized
cooling technician from a manufacturer's authorized specialist
For some parties, this meant a rather
ineffective activity: the plant installer normally got no
With the new replacement detector from AP, the user or
the refrigeration company can easily replace it without using
This not only saves time and money but also
creates an independence.
This means reduced maintenance costs of up to
