Bacharach, a Pittsburgh, Pa.-headquartered supplier of gas detection and analysis instrumentation, has launched a new hand-held exhaust gas analyzer for measuring carbon monoxide (CO) in ambient air or directly from the exhaust pipe of natural gas engines in compressor stations, as well as in forklifts, floor burnishers or other equipment burning propane, gasoline, diesel or natural gas.
The Monoxor XR can be used for verifying worker safety and achieving compliance with OSHA air quality regulations, providing visual and audible alarming for instant alerting of personnel to dangerous CO levels. It can also be used for engine tuning and diagnostics, the company said, offering an expanded measuring range of 80,000 ppm, which the company said allows technicians to test even poorly maintained engines without risking damage to the gas sensor. Bacharach’s Combustion mobile app also allows the user to quickly and easily create and send customizable emissions reports from their smartphones or tablets.
A specialized exhaust probe kit is available for direct connection to various exhaust pipe designs, and a magnetic rubber boot is available to provide a non-slip, secure grip for hands-free testing. The Monoxor XR employs Bacharach’s B-SMART sensor technology for pre-calibrated sensor replacement in the field, minimizing downtime, maintenance costs and overall cost of ownership, the company said.
