The Trane family of refrigerant monitors offers two important
benefits: refrigerant conservation and safety. With the decreasing
availability of refrigerants, coupled with rising cost, it is
important to have a refrigerant monitor in the equipment room to
provide early warning of refrigerant loss. As a leak-sensing device, a
Trane refrigerant monitor constantly measures the amount of specific
refrigerants in the surrounding air. It's capable of initiating
alarms, activating building ventilating systems, and integrating with
Building Automation Systems. ASHRAE Standard 15 – 2001 requires
refrigerant monitors in all new chiller installations and all chiller
retrofits. Refrigerant monitors are also strongly recommended for all
existing chiller rooms or refrigerant storage facilities.
Trane offers two types of refrigerant monitors: RMWE, the most sensitive monitor on the market and RMWG, the most flexible and dependable monitor on the market.
