CO2 Leak Detection
Bacharach introduces the MGS-550, a carbon dioxide leak detection monitor for industrial and retail refrigeration applications such as cold storage and machinery rooms. This instrument is selective, taking into consideration both response times and operating temperatures in these applications. It is specified for use in the operating temperatures required within refrigeration applications. The Bacharach sensor is rated for use at temperatures as low as -40° C/-40° F.
Expansion of Air-Cooled Scroll Chiller Line
Johnson Controls expands its York line of YLAA Air-Cooled Scroll Chillers up to 230 tons. The extended capacity of the YLAA offers a more cost-competitive solution to 230-ton opportunities without sacrificing size, quality and efficiency. It offers full-load and part-load efficiencies that meet or exceed ASHRAE standards. Options now include variable-speed-drive condenser fans to further enhance part load efficiency and sound, as well as integral pump packages to offer a single purchase, shipment and install solution. The units feature two independent circuits for partial redundancy, a brazed-plate heat exchanger, microchannel condenser and native building automation system communications.
Heavy-Duty Coil Spring Inserts
Air Lift Co.
Air Lift upgrades its coil spring insert kit with the Air Lift 1000 HD load support kit. It is the company’s heaviest-duty coil spring insert, providing up to 2,500 lb. of load-leveling capabilities. Specifically engineered for 2009-2018 coil-sprung RAM 1500 pickups, these custom-molded polyurethane air springs are simply inserted into the rear coil springs, no vehicle modifications required. By properly leveling the load, squat is eliminated, braking is improved, and the vehicle is returned to a level and stable state, allowing users to tow and haul with safety and comfort.

Thermal Imager Line
Ridgid introduces a new thermal imager line, which features the latest technology, best images in their class and easy-to-use interfaces to predict problems before they happen. Users can view, edit, and analyze captured images from the thermal imager directly on a mobile device. The product line includes four thermal imagers — RT-3, RT-5x, RT-7x and RT-9x — that range from providing 160x120 pixel thermal images to 320x240 pixel thermal images. Select models show a digital camera image alongside the thermal image. Features include super resolution, ε-Assist and the Ridgid Thermal App.
Model Q7RF 16 SEER Packaged Heat Pump
Nortek Global HVAC
This heat pump from Nortek is a 12 EER, 8.2 HSPF ultra-high energy-efficient, two-stage unit. It has an all-aluminum Micro-Channel evaporator and condenser coils for lighter weight and smaller size. In a Micro-Channel heat pump, the coil is rotated 90° so that the headers are on the top and bottom, not the sides.

Water Pressure Boosting System
The Franklin Electric Inline 1100 SpecPAK Pressure Boosting System connects easily to nearly any plumbing configuration to provide an easy-to-size water pressure boosting solution for numerous HVAC applications. It is a quiet, all-in-one constant water pressure system that contains the pump, motor, and drive in a compact package. Contractors simply determine how much water is required to be boosted to the desired constant pressure output and the system comes properly packaged. As water volume needs increase, the pump instantly accelerates to the proper speed to ensure the water pressure stays constant throughout the application.
