Leak Detection & F-Gas Compliance

Since January 2015, the F-Gas Regulations have demanded effective leak detection from more businesses than ever, both large and small.

RCS’ market-leading leak detection systems have been designed to meet this obligation for every business.
.

Scalable

Our systems and equipment are flexible, affordable and easily-scaled to meet the needs of all installation sizes, budgets and organisational F-Gas obligations.

Accurate

Our groundbreaking sensor technology delivers accurate and reliable detection (right down to 1 part per million (PPM) if required), and all refrigerant types (including CO2 and HFC / HCFC) can be accommodated in a single solution.

Flexible

Fully compliant leak detection can be implemented as a stand-alone installation or easily integrated with existing management and control systems.


To help you identify and meet your F-Gas obligations and other leak detection objectives, RCS offers free system assessments and a comprehensive installation, technical support, servicing and planned preventative maintenance service.


Convenience / Small Stores

RCS’ fixed point leak detection systems and equipment provide an affordable and F-Gas compliant solution that is equally well suited to a single convenience stores or a large portfolio of smaller stores.

R

MGS fixed point sensors are carefully positioned around the store to ensure effective coverage – typically within frozen food coldrooms, HT coldrooms and any plant room.

R

Each of the sensors is connected to an in-store RCS Monitoring Panel, which monitors the analogue signal from each sensor and provides an accurate PPM reading for each.

R

Alarm levels can be set for each channel to provide typically three levels of alarm, “alert”, “alarm” and “critical”, with alarms triggering a beacon / siren. This process is controlled by the panel, allowing for a testing function to be specified for each individual beacon / siren – further reducing the wiring requirements and cost of installation.

R

Critically for many users, the Monitoring Panel communicates these readings, alarm information and datalogs from the sensors directly to third-party monitoring bureaus and other management systems for effective integration with existing building management and control systems.


Large Retail

RCS-Bacharach aspirated detection technology is transforming large retailers’ response to the issues around F-Gas regulation and HFC leakage.

R

The unrivalled accuracy and coverage of the RCS-Bacharach system derives from a proprietary infrared sampling bench which delivers detection accuracy down to just 1ppm, as well as virtually eliminating false alarms.

R

Combined with fast sampling rates and sampling distances up to 1,200ft, this technology provides a powerful platform for the complete RCS-Bacharach range.

R

To ensure comprehensive coverage throughout the store, up to 64 sensors can be accommodated per Multi-Zone Monitor unit.

R

And the new PGM-IR portable detector takes effective detection store-wide. By showing actual concentrations of refrigerant gases in real time on a handheld unit, the PGM-IR can detect for the first time low level leaks in areas which render traditional leak detection technology ineffective – places such as already contaminated areas, the inside of chiller cabinets and even outside the store.
