In Macurco, New Products

Sioux Falls, SD –May 24th, 2022 – Macurco Gas Detection, a leading developer of gas detection solutions for fire and security, HVAC, industrial, and personal safety, announced its new innovative Refrigerant Leak Detector (VRF).

The Macurco RD-VRF Refrigerant Gas Detector is designed to provide continuous refrigerant monitoring in VRF applications that pose an oxygen-depleting environment due to a leak in refrigerant gas. This detector is essential in providing warnings at low levels of refrigerant leaks which can be monitored locally or via a BMS.

The RD-VRF series is a stand-alone detector that will have a 4-week lead time and will be made to order. There will be two voltage options, a 24V & a 120V available to order. It will have a very stable NDIR sensor and with come with an aesthetically pleasing flush mount faceplate. Due to design, minimal maintenance is required. 

The RD-VRF monitors possible refrigerant leaks in applications such as hotels, apartments, hospitality, restaurants, child-care facilities, etc.

“A VRF system is designed differently from a centralized heating and cooling system, it utilizes refrigerant piped throughout a zone that provides a more efficient cooling and heating solution.  The life safety concern with a VRF system is the potential leak of refrigerant in a confined occupied area that would deplete the oxygen levels such as hotel rooms, apartments, elderly care facilities, offices, etc.  A key benefit of the RD-VRF family is designed with a long-life stable NDIR sensor built in a sleek aesthetically pleasing housing. With the challenges of global supply issues that manufacturers are facing we are fortunate and can ship product!”, said Aaron Sherman, Macurco Gas Detection, Product Manager – Macurco Building & Home.
