    For refrigeration service a leak detector can assist the tech in finding a small leak.
    For fuel gas service a different detector would be used to find a natural or propane gas leak.
    Both these type are typically hand held is this your question or are you referring to a mounted detector ?

    Short answer: one is identifing there is a leak, The other is identifing there is a hazardous condition.

    Refrigerants have been known to displace oxygen.
    Some refrigerants are toxic and dangerous if inhaled (or on the skin)

    As already asked: Are you asking about hand held or mounted detectors
