    I'm searching for a propane leak on my fifth wheel and I was wondering if this tool is the right one for the job I'm doing. Will it detect propane?

      Yes, this detects propane and is ideal for identifying where the leak is occurring.

    Do you need to place the wand directly on a suspected leak source or will this pick up any natural gas in open air?

      The wand will pick up and register any combustible gas it comes in contact with. It works like the old Geiger Counters you might have seen on TV. When the sensors start to pick up gas, the monitor will start to click, As you get closer to the source of the leak, the clicking indicator will increase in frequency.

    I have a vapor lead on my pickup truck. Will this detector detect gasoline fumes?

      For the gasoline vapor leak on your pickup truck, the UEi CD100A would work just fine. The device recognizes a long list of combustible gases, and that includes gasoline.

      Once the unit is started and warmed up, you can slowly run the probe along the exposed fuel lines, etc until the audible clicking starts to repeat faster. Narrowing down the source of the leak is usually fairly easy. This is the same type of device that your gas company uses when trying to pinpoint gas leaks in the home. Works great on propane leaks as well.

    Will this unit detect natural gas or CNG as well as propane?

      The UEi CD100a combustible gas meter is optimized for natural gas or methane. However, the solid state sensor reacts well to a wide variety of flammable gases. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) and propane are easily detected. Our customers use the CD100A regularly on boats and RVs to check the connections for leaks. This is in addition to the traditional use of finding gas leaks in the home.

      With the flexible wand, and near instantaneous response, finding leaks, even small ones, is a snap with the CD100A.

    Does this unit require any form of montly or annual calibration? What is the anticipated life expectancy of the sensors in the unit? How long is the runtime on a single battery?

      The UEi CD100A does not need periodic calibration. As a leak detector, we are not looking for a specific reading. Rather it is the difference between the absence of combustible gas and finding a leak. This will cause an increase in the ‘tic’ rate of the detector. The user can adjust the sensitivity on the fly.

      The RS1000 solid state combustible gas sensor has an expected life of approx 3 years. The manufacturer warranty is 1 year.

      UEi says that the 9 volt alkaline battery should last about 5 hours of normal usage.

    Does this come with a carrying case?

      The UEi CD100A will not detect carbon monoxide, and so should not be used for CO leak detection.

    I'm looking to use this tester to detect r-12a, which is a hydrocarbon based refrigerant. (Unlike the usual hfc's or cfc's). Can I use it to automotive couplings (r12a) and home brazed joints (r22a)?

    1. Chris

      2015-03-18 22:58:31

      Checking with tech support at UEi, the CD100A will only detect the R600 type refrigerant. It would not be useful in detecting R12A or R22A.

    Will this detector pick up nitrogen?

    1 answer
    1. Chris

      2015-04-15 21:32:12

      The UEi CD100A will not detect nitrogen. The solid state electronic sensor on the CD100A is specific to combustible gases. With nitrogen being basically inert, this type of instrument will not ‘see’ the gas. Also, we do not have another portable instrument with a nitrogen sensor.

    what is the min. ppm sensitivity, and what is the response time?

      The sensitivity for this leak detector is 50ppm and responds immediately.
