320 Cutter

An external non-methane hydrocarbon cutter provides the capability to measure methane-only for clients with a standard heated flame ionisation detector (FID). The 320 Cutter therefore provides a low cost alternat4e to all-in-one FIDs with a built in cutter.

Product Description

The 320 Cutter provides a low cost alternativee to “all in one” FIDs with a built in cutter. Housed in a portable case suitable for inline usage with portable and fixed equipment, this unit is ideal for use with Signal Group’s 3010 MINIFID. Two modes of operation allow a reading for either total hydrocarbons or methane only, allowing you to der4e a value for non-methane hydrocarbon concentration. In the methane mode the sample is directed through a heated catalyst. This catalyst oxidises non-methane species of hydrocarbons in the sample. The THC mode bypasses this catalyst to provide a reading for total hydrocarbon. These two modes allow the der4ation of a non-methane hydrocarbon by simply deducting the methane only reading from the total hydrocarbon value. As a stand alone unit, this cutter is suitable for use with any heated FID to obtain a methane only or non-methane concentration reading.
