Inficon D-Tek Select Refrigerant Leak Detector
The Inficon 712-202-G1 D-TEK Select HVAC Refrigerant Leak Detector has an infrared absorption sensing cell that is exceptionally sensitive to all refrigerants. The sensing cell maintains its sensitivity over time, enabling accurate and reliable performance, and last for approximately 1000 hours - 10 times longer than its predecessors. The Inficon D TEK Select features a charging status indication, an indication for sensor failure, and NiMH rechargeable batteries. The Inficon D Tek 712 202 G1 leak detector can be used for both commercial and residential refrigerant units as well as vehicle air conditioning maintenance. Made in the USA.
D TEK Select device - Key Features
- Sensitivity of 0.10 oz. / year (3 g/a)
- Detects All Halogenated Refrigerants Including CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs, and HFOs
- Infrared sensor that last 1000 hours for low cost ownership
- Rechargeable battery that comes with wall and car charger
- Infrared cell does not weaken over time, so response remains consistent and accurate
- Manual zeroing ignores user-programmed refrigerant levels when activated
The Inficon D-TEK is sensitive to all refrigerants, including R22, R134A, R404A, R410A, R507 (AZ50), HFO1234yf, and all CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs. This infrared refrigerant leak detector, with a sensitivity of 0.10 ounces / year (3 g/a), will be able to narrow down and find even the smallest of leaks. In addition, the unit will not be harmed or overwhelmed by large quantities of refrigerant in a small concentrated area.
Inficon’s IR cell is the only field replaceable IR sensor in the industry. The sensor is easily accessible and installing a new IR sensor can be done in minutes. The filter in the D-TEK select is the most robust in the industry at blocking contaminants from entering the detector. Its hydrophobic design prevents water, oil, or other liquids from damaging the sensor.
The infrared detectors have some advantages over the heated diode detectors as the sensors last longer and are less susceptible to false positives from other gasses and maintain greater accuracy for a larger range of refrigerants.
Infrared leak detectors work by pulling air through an optical window on the sensor. Refrigerant gases absorb IR radiation. The optical sensor senses this and triggers an alarm, depending on how much IR has been absorbed. This technology is very accurate and because the sensor does not come in contact with the refrigerant the sensor isn’t subject to contamination. This is why IR sensors provide a life expectancy of over 1000 hours.
This A/C Inficon refrigerant leak detector has a rubber coated flexible metal probe that is 15” long to extend in difficult to reach areas. A technician no longer has to worry about always having spare batteries on hand as this refrigerant leak detector includes NiMH rechargeable batteries, an A/C wall charger as well as a vehicle charging adapter. The D-TEK leak detector is proudly made in the USA.

Built to Last
Inficon doesn't make too many products and usually has one option for each category. I would label them more as a top end brand that some other options out there. This leak detector is another example of this utilizing an infrared sensor that has a 1000 hour cell life. I like that it can withstand large exposures and not ruin the sensor as that is why I needed a new detector in the first place. Its nice to have a real detector for once.
I definitely recommend getting a unit with an IR sensor like this one if you're doing leak detection. It basically will last forever as far as test equipment goes so you don't have to worry about the chemical sensor burning out.
the 0.10oz per year sensitivity can find just about any leak you can imagine. The ir sensor lasts basically forever which is great as i hate downtime and i never have a backup unit or sensor.
Top rated product for a reason. It lasts forever and the sensitivity doesn't decline. A must buy for any serious professional.
