Macurco Adds New Product Line – VRF


Sioux Falls, SD – June 2024 – Macurco Gas Detection, a leading developer of gas detection solutions for fire and security, HVAC, industrial, and personal safety, is proud to announce the launch of its latest product, the Macurco Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Monitor.

Designed with cutting-edge technology and built to the highest quality standards, the VRF is designed to provide continuous refrigerant monitoring in Variable Refrigerant Flow applications. Depending on the type of refrigerant, a leak in refrigerant gas could develop an oxygen-depleting environment that may lead to asphyxiation, or combustible refrigerant may lead to an explosion. The RD-VRF Refrigerant Gas Detector comes with standard  2 alarm levels providing advanced warning via low detection alarming and notification locally or via a Building Management System (BMS).

“The launch of the VRF Sensor is great timing for the Macurco brand.  As we approach the refrigerant market in different arenas, the Macurco VRF product line is functional and user-friendly.  This release has brought forth a better understanding of a potentially massive market.  As we continue to learn the industry, Macurco is in a perfect position both from a technical and aesthetic perspective with the VRF Sensor.  We are very excited to see the growth of this product over the next few years and serve our customer base with an upcoming need in the industry.”– Branden Dewing, Director of Sales

This product is made in the United States and offers the best NDIR sensing technology lasting up to 10 years. There will be one model that can be powered via low-voltage or line voltage and currently provides the most gas options on the market.

At Macurco, our mission has always been to push the boundaries of innovation and provide our customers with the best gas detection solutions. The new Macurco RD-VRF is a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to meeting the evolving needs of our customers. We believe this product will not only meet but exceed the expectations of our users.

“The industry is changing regarding more efficient heating and cooling systems and environmental concerns about the type of refrigerants we use. With these changes, safety cannot be ignored. Macurco is very excited to launch our new RD-VRF detector. That will fill a gap in the industry with a high-quality product that offers great versatility for our customers and an amazing support system backing it up. We see this product serving our existing customer base very well.”Aaron Sherman, Director of Product Management
