Bacharach’s Tru Pointe® Ultra is a compact ultrasonic leak detector that uses palented technology to detect leaks in air conditioning and refrigeration systems

The Tru Pointe® Ultra is the world’s first pocket-size electronic instument that can simultaneously detect the vacuum and high pressure leaks that occur in HVAC/R systems. The Tru Pointe® Ultra guides the user to a leak by quantifying the intensity of the ultrasound and concerting it to a sound the user can hear easily through headphones. Tru Pointe® Ultra’s operational principle is based on the detection of inaudible high frequency sounds produced by the flow of gases and liquids in leaks. The leak flow, passing through very narrow spaces (cracks, holes etc.),generates a rich ultrasonic sound spectrum which is easy to detect with the Tru Pointe® Ultras leak detector. Since the Tru Pointe® Ultra detects airborne ultrasound and is not a particular to gas chemistry it can detect all types of gases including nitrogen and refrigerants rushing in a system under vacuum. An electronic conversion process called heterodyning translates this ultrasound into true audible sound that helps the user distinguish leaks through headphones.


Saves Time and money

The Tru Pointe® Ultra is capable of finding pressure and vacuum leaks in HVAC systems, without being affected by the wind or background refrigerants in confined spaces. It can find a leak as small as 2.5-3oz./yr (84gr/yr).

Available with compact, folding headset (Tru Pointe® Ultra) or high quality stereo headphones (Tru Pointe® Ultra HD),the Tru Pointe® Ultra is an indispensable tool that saves time and money for every HVAC/R technician and contractor.
