Informant 2 Dual Purpose Leak Detector

Informant®2 Dual Purpose Leak Detector

A dual purpose refrigerant and combustible gas leak detector

  • Detects refrigerants and combustible gases (with respective sensor installed) – changing sensors takes only
  • Sensor located in the probe tip for ultimate sensitivity, fast response and easy changing
  • Visual and audible indicators include dual LED scales, flashing LED in probe tip and a speaker (with mute
The Informant®2 is a uniquely flexible leak detector designed for residential and commercial heating and cooling 
contractors.  It’s the only dual-purpose leak detector that can be switched from refrigerants to combustible gases
(and back again) in seconds. This one unit replaces two dedicated leak detectors, saving space in your truck and
money in your wallet.
The Informant®2 has a long, flexible neck for detecting leaks in hard-to-reach areas, dual LED scales to show relative 
leak sizes and an auto-zeroing feature for finding leaks in backgrounds where target gas is present. It is UL 913
certified (when using the combustible sensor only) for hazardous locations, and comes with a 1 year warranty
including sensors.
