    time for a new leak detector

    Does anybody have a recent leak detector they really like? The most recent ones we have at the shop are Fieldpiece SRL2 and they seem OK but I'd like some input on what others are using. Thanks.

    Hey guys i only use nitrogen. Its what we used in the factory when i worked on the line at Marine air systems. For a/c systems i pressurize anywhere between 350-450 psi and u will find the leak instantly. Now on refrigeration well all depends what kind of evap coil you have oh and no more than 150 psi.

    Well - H10PM it is then. What has been your experience with life of the sensor? It looks like the tuneup kit comes with a bunch of filters, a single sensor, some tips and flow indicator balls - should be all I need?

    Tifzx1 seems to be better than most but technology gets better every year so my favorite seems to change with every new one I get.

    Ya just can't beat the H-10 PM too...
    Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? I mean, all you get is that one trick, rational thinking, but when you're good and crazy, well, the sky's the limit!

    Hey, all H10 pm fans....does it make a difference, between the Yokogawa ,Bacharach, or Mars...

    does it really matter?I found the yokagawa cheaper.

    I have the 110v model, but,only use for self contained stuff....
