Bacharach Informant 2 - Combustible and Refrigerant Leak Detector

A dual purpose refrigerant and combustible gas leak detector

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.


  • Detects refrigerants and combustible gases (with respective sensor installed) – changing sensors takes only seconds
  • 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 option)
