410 A

Does anyone make a good leak detector for 410 A? The D-tek works great for R-22 leaks. But the 410 A leaks are hard to find.

    leak detectors

    Electronic leak detectors tend to give too many false-positives. The D-tek by Infinicom does give better (read "more trustworthy") results than most but I would never try to fix a leak that I couldn't confirm with N2 and bubble solution. If you can't find it @400# it ain't really there.

    Leak Detectors

    I have always used the GE leak detectors with florocarbon refrigerants (R12,22,500,502,409,etc.) I have not yet had to leak check 410A as they are still rare but I would absolutely check out the GE type. Yokogawa has rights to it and I have seen them marketed by Motors And Armatures (MARS) among others. I have used many different types and most were a waste of money. I find leaks every time.
