Leak Detection


All refrigeration systems should be checked for leaks for a number of reasons:

  • Concern over the environment
  • Cost of replacing lost refrigerant
  • Legislation to phase out and ban CFC’s
  • A low refrigerant charge will lead to a reduction in system performance – could be costly.

It is now a legal requirement that a system with over 3kg of refrigerant should be checked for leaks on an annual basis. (Article 17) This means making leak detection part of an on going maintenance programme.
