Notes: 

– HFID-THC is a heated flame ionisation detector to measure total hydrocarbons in a sample. 

– HFID-DNMHC is a heated flame ionisation with dual detector to measure methane, non-methane and total hydrocarbons in a sample. 

– AS90 is a built-in heated catalyst air purifier to supply hydrocarbon free air for increased stability and drift. 

– Blank Panel is provided with free issued S4i software to act as remote display and to automate coarse and fine calibration. Display: Removable 6inch Wireless Tablet screen with on-board logging facility. 

– Options for either internal or external sample pump where sample is not under positive pressure. External sample pump recommended for applications operating 24/7 and for ease of servicing. 

– Options for internal or external air pump for zero calibration and FID flame air supply. 

– The standard I/O includes 3 contact closure alarm outputs. This upgraded option has 23 user configurable contact closure that can be used for alarms or to control external functions such as down-the-line calibration where valves to introduce calibration gas at the sample inlet point can be controlled automatically.
