TEK-MATE – THE TOP SELLING REFRIGERANT LEAK DETECTOR IN THE HVAC/R MARKET.
Affordable price, simple operation, and reliable performance make TEK-Mate the refrigerant leak detector of choice for technicians. See for yourself why TEK-Mate is the #1 selling refrigerant leak detector in the HVAC/R market
TEK-Mate is the perfect leak detector for the light-to-medium refrigerant technician who demands reliable leak detection at an affordable-friendly price. Suitable for both R410A R134A plus many more.
Features such as the patented heated diode sensor, variable intensity audible and visual alarms and automatic compensation for changing background refrigerant concentrations make TEK-Mate the best value on the market.
Offering hand-held convenience, the Tek-Mate leak detector boasts proven heated diode sensor technology. The Tek-Mate incorporates an electro-chemical sensor consisting of a ceramic substrate, doped with a reactive element, and maintained at high temperature by a built-in heating element.
When a halogen-bearing gas contacts with the hot surface, the chlorine, fluorine or bromine atoms are separated from the molecule and ionized. This causes an electrical current to flow within the ceramic to a collection electrode at the center. Careful selection and application of the ceramic permits the Tek-Mate sensor to provide similar responses to CFCs (such as R11 and R12), HCFCs (such as R22 and R123), HFCs (such as R134a) as well as replacement blends (such as R404a and R410a) so that the operator does not need to determine the refrigerant in use, or remember to set a selector switch.
Tek-Mate is sensitive to R134a at 2 grams/year and R410A at 5 grams/yr, making it easy to detect a leak of any size.
HVACTOOLS Product Review:
- Designed for light duty air conditioning & commercial refrigeration
- Sensitivity of 2 g/year R134 (0.10 oz./year ) and 5 grams/yr with R410a (0.25 oz./year )
