Car Air Con Leak Detection

Here at Jack Frost Car Air Conditioning, we find the root of your air-con leak problems by utilizing car aircon leak detection best methods. Leakage of refrigerant in an HVAC system is inevitable as there are many imperfect joint fitting hoses or welding points.

Some of the leak drippage can be as low as 1 gram every decade and are not critical to the operation of the system. Others may leak more due to the harsh temperatures, environment, and vibration that cause these joints to leak. If not rectified, these defects will cause the cooling system to drop in efficiency.

Jack Frost's A/C Leak Detection Methods

We’re not interested in simply regassing your a/c system knowing you have a leak, as this will result in unnecessary future regassing and damage to the environment. 

Whether this is a small leak or a large leak Jack Frost has many ways to detect leaks through multiple methods:

1. Hydrogen Leak Testing ( Best Method)

Using the best leak testing technology gas-hydrogen. The lightest and least viscous of all gases, hydrogen spreads quickly throughout the test object. It readily penetrates the smallest leak and Hydrogen is environmentally friendly.

2. Dry nitrogen pressure testing

Dry nitrogen pressure testing and Spray on bubble-type leak detection allow accurate pinpointing of car aircon leaks as the user can watch bubbles or foam actively brew at the point of leakage.

3. Ultrasonic leak detection

Ultrasonic sound is a range of sound (>20kHz) that is above the human hearing capacity. The turbulence created by air or gas forced through a small orifice generates ultrasonic sound. Ultrasonic leak detection is also used to locate leaks in systems pressurized with dry nitrogen.

4. Electronic gas detecting machines

This refrigerant leak detection is the most favorable used device due to its accuracy using an infrared sensor to accurately detect leaks

5. UV Leak Detection

UV trace detector dye provides safe, fast, and precise detection of small refrigerant gas leaks from air conditioning systems. Once UV dye is added to the system the dye will fluoresce under illumination with a UV torch wherever there is a refrigerant leak.  

This precisely locates the leak resulting in extremely accurate leak detection.
