Bacharach Leakator 10 Portable Combustible Gas Monitor

Bacharach Leakator 10 Portable Combustible Gas Monitor


The Leakator® 10 is an ideal instrument for pinpointing combustible gas leaks in a number of residential, commercial and industrial applications, including gas pipeline surveying and valve, regulator and gas meter inspection. It uses a long-life (5 years typical) sensor and is easy to operate with one hand, giving you a reliable, easy-to-use tool.

The Leakator® 10 has a long, flexible neck for detecting leaks in hard-to-reach areas, bright LED scale to show relative leak sizes and a manual balance feature for finding leaks in backgrounds where target gas is present. It is UL 913 certified for hazardous locations, and carries a 1 year warranty that includes the sensor.
