1.9 Functional Overview

1.9.1 General Description

The Bacharach Refrigerant Monitor is a portable refrigerant gas monitor. The unit is designed to test for a specific refrigerant gas for the purpose of determining the presence and level of that gas being tested.

The monitor self-zeros every 4 minutes to ensure accurate gas measurements.

During normal operation the HM unit displays the type of gas being monitored; along with displaying both the current gas level and the peak gas level detected in that area on its front panel LCD. The monitor retains a log of previous readings that can be easily accessed at a later time for analysis.

Front panel indicators and an audible alarm are provided to signal gas alarm and instrument fault conditions. The audible alarm can temporarily be silenced by a push of a button, but will reactivate if the gas level is still above the alarm trip point after a user defined time period has elapsed.

The HM unit requires only minor periodic maintenance such as the occasional replacement of filters. The monitor incorporates active diagnostics that continuously check the system for proper operation. A front panel indicator is provided to alert an operator of system malfunctions, and fault codes are generated that enable the operator to identify the cause of the fault.

1.9.2 Response to the Presence of Multiple Refrigerants

The HM is a refrigerant level monitor, not a gas analyzer. You must program the monitor to test for a specific refrigerant, and it will only return accurate concentration readings for that particular refrigerant.

When other types of refrigerant gas are present, the monitor may return incorrect readings.

Most applications only require detection of a single refrigerant and the problems that are associated with monitoring multiple gases are rarely an issue. If there is a possibility of multiple refrigerants leaking in the same sampling zone, then you should carefully consider which refrigerant compound you program the unit to monitor.

2.1 Front Panel Display & Controls

Operation

2.2 Connecting Gas-Sample and Exhaust Lines

2.2.1 Overview

A single gas-sample line needs to be run from the HM unit to the area to be monitored. An optional purgeair line can also be installed to bring fresh air into the monitor for the purpose of resetting its infrared detector to a baseline of 0 ppm during the purge cycle. Also, an optional exhaust line can be installed to vent refrigerant gas away from the monitor.

2.2.2 Connecting the Gas-Sample Line

To connect the gas-sample line to the monitor, simply push the tubing onto the elbow connector and attach the elbow onto the Gas Sample Port on the front of the monitor as shown in the illustration below.

The gas-sample line can be up to 50 ft (15.2 m) in length. All tubing bends should have a radius of no less than 5” to ensure proper airflow. If kinks or obstructions occur in the line the monitor may not function properly.

The end of this line should be placed near the potential leak source and positioned to reduce the possibility of mists, aerosols, oil, water, dust, or other contaminates being drawn into the monitor.

An external filter (P/N 3015-5324) should be attached to the end of this line (see figure below).

Instruction 3015-4584 Rev 11 5

Operation Halogen Monitor

2.2.3 Connecting the Exhaust Line

The exhaust line carries the exhausted gas sample away from the monitor, and is required if the monitor is located in a confined, poorly ventilated area.

The exhaust line can be up to 50 ft (15.2 m) in length. Ideally this line should terminate outdoors in a location that is not exposed to the elements.

Connect the exhaust line to the monitor by firmly pushing the tubing into the Exhaust Port’s push-toconnect (PTC) fitting. See below. If the exhaust line terminates outside the building, position the tubing so that no water or moisture can enter the line. Note that this line does not require a termination filter.

To connect the exhaust line to the exhaust port’s PTC fitting, firmly push the appropriate tubing into the hole in the center of the connector until it seats in the connector. Refer to the figures at the left.

To remove tubing from a PTC connector, push and hold the spring-loaded collar inwards, then simultaneously withdraw the tubing. Refer to the figures at the right.

2.3 General Operation

WARNING: Operate the monitor in its horizontal position (handle facing upwards). Tilting the

monitor to a vertical position while in operation may cause inaccurate measurements to occur.

To turn ON the monitor, lift up the shield located in front of the handle and press the red power ON/OFF toggle switch.

When the monitor has been powered ON, allow it to warm up for 5 minutes.

MEASURE 00020pk

10ppm R134A

Halogen Monitor Operation

PURGE 00020pk

10ppm R134A

PURGE indicates when the monitor is resetting its infrared detector to a baseline of 0 ppm. The purge cycle runs for 10 seconds.

If the detected gas level exceeds a preset gas-alarm point, the unit will respond by turning ON the front panel ALARM (red) light. If the AUDALRM function is activated (page 11), the audible alarm will also turn

ON. Pressing the front panel SILENCE button turns OFF the audible alarm, but the ALARM light will continue to flash as long as the detected gas level is above the alarm point. The audible alarm will reactivate if the gas-alarm condition is not cleared within the time period set by the

SILENCE

function (page 11).

If a system fault occurs (see Fault Code list on page 15), the monitor responds by turning ON the front

panel FAULT (yellow) light. If the AUDALRM function is activated (page 11), the audible alarm will also turn ON. Pressing the front panel SILENCE button turns OFF the audible alarm, but the FAULT light will continue to flash as long as the fault is present. The audible alarm will reactivate if the fault condition is not cleared within the time period set by the

SILENCE function (page 11). Both the FAULT light and

audible alarm will automatically turn OFF after the cause of the fault has been eliminated.

A log of the last 30 fault events can be viewed using the monitor’s FAULTS function (page 10).

2.4 Time Weighted Average (TWA) Operation

2.4.1 Overview

In addition to displaying the current gas level, the monitor can also calculate and display a Time Weighted

Average ppm value. This value is available in two formats (8 Hour or Continuous). This provides users with the most appropriate data on their average ppm exposure in the working environment.

TWA operation is selected by using the

2ndUNIT function.

The two TWA formats are identified by the appearance of either “TWA” or ‘twa” in the upper-right corner of the Data Display screen.

TWA (upper case letters) is calculated over an 8-hour period. This format is designed to show the uers’s average ppm exposure level during a typical work day. After 8 hours has expired, an asterisk (*) will be displayed but the TWA will continue to be updated.

PURGE 00TWA

100ppm R134A

twa (lower case letters) is continuously calculated over the operating time of the monitor. This mode is useful for monitoring an area for a few minutes or more and is the preferred mode of operation for checking operating room atmospheres.

Halogen Monitor Operation

2.14 The Calibration Function

If greater than standard accuracy is desired, the factory’s default calibration factor of 1.000 may be adjusted by performing the calibration procedure as described below, and then selecting the monitor’s

CAL function to enter the new calibration factor.

IMPORTANT: Changing the calibration factor will VOID the factory calibration. Typically, the monitor will remain within the factory-calibrated accuracy indefinitely and no calibration is required. Complex software algorithms adjust for temperature drift, IR source aging, and pressure changes in order to keep the unit within factory accuracy specifications.

2.14.1 Calibration Procedure

The calibration factor is determined by sampling a known concentration of R-134A refrigerant gas. A cylinder of a certified calibration gas must be used to ensure that the gas sample is a known concentration at ambient conditions. A minimum sample size of 5 liters is required.

Calibration is best performed at or near full scale (1,000 ppm). It can, however, be done at any concentration and ideally in the range where maximum accuracy is desired down to, but not below,

100 ppm.

The monitor should be operating for at least one hour prior to performing a calibration.

Prepare the monitor for sampling by using the

CAL function to set the calibration factor to 1.000. Also, use the LOG INT function to set the log interval to 1 minute.

With the monitor operating normally, connect the gas-sample bag directly to the gas-inlet port and allow the monitor to sample the entire bag. When sampling is complete, view the logged ppm values using the

PPM LOG function. If the bag was large enough for multiple samples, average the most stable ones. The new calibration factor is computed by dividing the known gas concentration value by the measured value.

Typically this number will be between 0.95 and 1.05. Use the CAL function as described below to enter the new calculated calibration factor

2.14.2 Adjusting Calibration Factor
