TIF was founded in 1960 on the concept of bringing new and innovative service test instruments to the ACR trade. Over the past 40+ years TIF grew through the support of professional technicians worldwide and has become the recognized leader in both electronic refrigerant leak detection and refrigerant measuring devices.

In 1964 the world’s first portable electronic refrigerant leak detector, the Tif-Tector was invented and launched. While Neil Armstrong walked on the moon in 1969, TIF launched the Tic-Tracer family of non-contact voltage detectors, revolutionizing safe electrical testing.

Throughout the following three decades TIF invented and patented more than 30 technologies and products including Negative Corona leak detectors, digital clamp-on ammeters, the electronic sightlass, pulsed load battery testers, 4-Way aluminum block manifold gauge sets, slim-line refrigerant charging meters and, in 2001 the Heated Pentode refrigerant sensor and TIF ZX-1 leak detector.

Today the TIF brand is recognized worldwide for these and other products. All TIF products are designed and produced to meet the highest quality and industry standards.

TIF prides itself on bringing laboratory technology and precision to the field service technician; because, in our minds, Today Is the Future.
