A refrigerant leak reduction cost savings calculator promises to help users of industrial and commercial refrigeration. Facilities such as cold storage warehouses, food processing plants and large supermarkets, can use the calculator from Bacharach Inc., New Kensington, Pa., to evaluate the cost and potential savings due to leaking refrigerant.

“By reducing the refrigerant leak rate, users can not only reduce costs but also mitigate supply risks as prices continue to increase and refrigerant production decreases,” said Tom Burniston, Bacharach’s product manager for refrigerant leak detection.

To assist in leak rate reduction, Bacharach offers proprietary, non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensor technology to enable early detection of low-level leaks.
