Refrigerant Leak Detector

The revolutionary new “Generation X” line of TIF refrigerant leak detectors brings you tomorrow’s technology today. We not only changed the way our leak detectors look, but the way to look at leak detectors. Innovative MPC circuitry and Advanced Digital Signal Processing monitor the sensing tip up to 2000 times per second. Automatic reset, true mechanical pump, and visual indicators (TIF XP-1 and TIF RX-1) speed and simplify leak searches.

A completely re-designed sensing tip increases sensitivity, improves reliability, and lasts twice as long as its predecessor. This results in fewer comebacks, less hassle, and lower maintenance costs. We are so confident in the design and quality of these detectors that they are backed by a warranty of up to 3 years.
