Features Unmatched by Any Other Analyzer on the Market Today

  • Data logging for on-screen review or export
  • Built-in pressure/temperature chart reference screen for all refrigerants
  • Built-in full scale vacuum sensor reads deep vacuum down to 10 microns
  • Dual K-Type temperature-compensated sensor ports allow for simultaneous suction and liquid readings
  • Provides real-time pressure data in selectable time increments: 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1 and 2 seconds
  • High accuracy and resolution pressure transducers for fast and sensitive leak detection

“We believe in engineering products that stand the test of time. Our refrigeration system analyzer is packed with the quality and innovation synonymous with YELLOW JACKET,” said Brian Flynn, executive vice president of Ritchie Engineering.
