    What I presetnly Use

    A number of supply houses would be able to hook you up with the TIF ZX-1. If it's the unit I'm thinking about, it works very well. I like to keep a number of different models on hand and I had posted this recently:

    I like to bring a variety of leak detectors into my classes so my students can get a feel for the wide variwty of options they have when it comes to leak detection. One of my latest goodies is this model from Inficon. It works great.


    Good luck.

    Leak Finders

    Hi Professor ! Just curious,in the Halide leak detector, is there a different metal that could be used as the reactor plate that would react with the new refrigerants?Thanks!
