Bacharach offers portable combustion and emissions analyzer
Bacharach, Inc., a provider of gas and refrigerant leak detection, combustion and emissions analysis instrumentation, energy management, and data analytics has released the PCA 400 portable combustion and emissions analyzer for commercial and industrial applications such as boilers, engines and generators.
The PCA 400 provides efficiency measurements and combustion emissions data during the fuel burning process that helps facilitate improved system performance, a reduction in energy consumption, and decreased emissions impact on the environment.
"The PCA 400 is an industrial-grade product at a commercial price point. It provides features and benefits not typically seen in this level of instrument by surpassing our competition in design, sensor life, run time and software," said Doug Keeports CEO and President of Bacharach, Inc. "With true NOx and data logging, the PCA® 400 and sample conditioner are important tools for technicians to improve system performance and productivity," he said.
The unit is engineered for ease-of-use in rugged environments. A robust touch screen, physical navigation buttons and Bluetooth wireless connectivity allow for easy, remote, safe and convenient operation in tough environments. 12-hour rechargeable and optional alkaline batteries keep the analyzer at the ready for all day operation.
Sensor protection and long warranties are offered for key combustion gases. Measurement of key combustion gases including CO, NO, NO2, and SO2 is included. Automatic sensor protection for quality measurements and a 5-year O2 sensor performance and warranty for lower cost of ownership are offered.
The unit has data viewing options with wireless printing. It uses a Windows application for continuous data collection and management, with built-in wireless printing for on-site report generation, and on-board data logging for 500 measurements. Rugged probe connections make for quick and easy tests. Color-coded, single probe connector to make integrated, rugged probe extensions fast, easy and secure.
As an accessory to the PCA 400, Bacharach has also developed an active sample conditioner to remove water vapor from the stack gas sample, ensuring accurate results in commercial and industrial applications where NO2 and SO2 measurements are necessary.
