HVAC-R firm Bacharach launches new MGS-400 Gas Detection Series

  •  The new gas detection series has been specifically designed for industrial & commercial gas & refrigerant leak detection applications.
  •  The gas detectors are also being supported by a mobile application, making maintenance, configuration & user interface simpler & more intuitive.

Bacharach, Inc. (Bacharach), a renowned Pittsburgh-based HVAC-R instrumentation company, has reportedly announced that it has launched its new MGS-400 Gas Detection Series for industrial & commercial gas & refrigerant leak detection applications.

Reports cite, the MGS-400 Series Refrigerant Gas Detection Series are also supported through a mobile application that has been developed to make maintenance, configuration as well as user interface simpler & more intuitive.

According to a press release by Bacharach Inc., the gas detection series support safety compliance inside mechanical rooms, machinery rooms, cold storage facilities, walk-in freezers, and chiller plants by actively monitoring for dangerous refrigerant leaks. The gas detectors’ ability to immediately detect leaks and quickly trigger alarm system helps in protecting personnel while attaining compliance with CSA-B52, EN 378 & ASHRAE 15 safety standards.

Reducing installation and commissioning time, the MGS-400 series deliver on cost savings & efficiency while allowing for pre-calibrated, plug-and-play installation & replacement of sensors in the field.

With the plug-&-play sensors and the mobile application, gas detectors could be installed in a significantly lesser amount of time with each detector taking 5 minutes for installation against the 25-minute installation time, without training. Moreover, the Calibration Certificates could also be generated through the mobile application and shared over cloud storage or through email.

Some of the key MGS-400 system features include onboard visual & audible alarms, alarm relay output in order to initiate additional strobes/horns or mechanical ventilation, low & high alarm levels to ensure adequate response.

According to reports, the scalable system along with the mobile application user-interface could reduce the system’s maintenance time by approximately 80%.
