Retrotec 450 | Duct leakage tester

Contact Instrument Solutions

The Retrotec 450 series are small yet high power positive and negative duct leakage testers which can test systems to pressures beyond 5 kPa. Used with the DM32-20 smart test gauge with touchscreen LCD, this system is intuitive to setup and use.

With a fan weighing just 9 kg, and the full kit in its case weighing only 16 kg, this duct leakage tester is a truly portable system allowing the engineer access to test points other units will not allow.

Products are available in 110 V and 230 V versions with DM32-20 gauges. The 451 (hire only) does not have Wi-Fi capabilities. The 450 model has Wi-Fi connectivity.

Features

  • The 450 series DucTesters can be run directly via the DM32-20 smart gauge which contains all the formula needed to calculate the applicable test standard leakage parameters .
