Refrigerant Leak Detection Systems

Exposure to Freon and other refrigerant gases can have critical consequences for workers and operations in industrial settings. With more industries utilizing processes for heating and cooling that involve refrigerant gases, the need for accurate and high-performing refrigerant leak detection systems has drastically increased. R.C. Systems is meeting that demand with our selection of refrigerant gas sensors designed to deliver excellent functionality with a low cost of ownership.

Refrigerant Gas in Industrial Applications

Freon gas detectors and refrigerant gas detectors are applicable in a variety of industries that require heating, ventilation, air conditioning, or refrigeration systems (HVACR). Some examples include, but are not limited to:
  • District cooling
  • Electricity production
  • Chemical and petrochemicals
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food and beverage
  • Data centers

Health Risks Caused by Refrigerant Gas Leaks

Refrigerant and Freon gases are highly toxic, flammable, and can result in physical injury to workers by causing asphyxiation, burns, or death. Sometimes called coolant poisoning, Freon poisoning, or sudden sniffing death syndrome, exposure to refrigerants requires immediate emergency medical intervention. Some symptoms of refrigerant gas exposure are:
  • Swelling and severe pain in the throat, nose, or sinuses
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loss of vision
  • Fainting and feeling weak
  • Skin irritation such as burns or holes
  • Vomiting.
Treatment will vary depending on the amount of time exposed, levels of refrigerant gases in the air, and the poisoned individual's weight, age, and overall health. If you suspect a refrigerant gas leak has occurred, move away from the area and seek fresh air.
