    I just acquired the H10G, and I'm just getting to know it. Which refrigerant will it sniff out?

    What do you mean you can't compress liquid!

    All CFCs, HCFCs, and HFCs. Not suitable for flammable refrigerants, or so I've read. Don't know about HFOs, maybe? In the manual for my H-10 Pro, it says to tweak the heater adjustment higher for HFCs like R410a, and lower for other refrigerants.

    Another plug for the h10 pro. Found 3 leaks yesterday in a store on the med temp rack, r404a. Could just walk down the lineup of cases and every time the beeping would start speeding up as I approached the leak. Then just a matter of pulling the case apart and pinpointing it.

    I was leak checking one rack system at a Lavitsef Foods store, while walking the sales floor I picked up a leak with my H10PM.

    The leak ended up being in a service meat case which had all its doors closed, and was about 20 feet from where I started picking up the leak.

    I had them unload the case and there was just one really small pinhole in the evaporator. I sprayed it with bubbles and it barely bubbles.

    So yeah, really happy with the H10PM

    My H10PRO has also picked leaks that the PGM-IR missed.

    I think it’s because the PGM-IR has that big wand, because every leak I’ve missed with it has been a small leak in an ackward spot where the big wand didn’t really fit.

    These are out of stock everywhere it seems like. Must be a good tool. I use the prowler which I do not like.
