How to Buy a Combustion Analyzer: 5 Features to Look For
If not monitored carefully, your boiler could be emitting hazardous pollutants like nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides.
So how do you ensure effective monitoring?
Combustion analyzers are used to measure the amount of gas content in flue gas. This then helps you determine the efficiency of combustion in your equipment. If you have appliances like boilers, these can be great tools to improve your energy consumption levels, help maintain cleaner air, and improve the efficiency of your appliance.
However, with a lot of competitors on the market, it can be hard to narrow down on a single combustion analyzer. So here are a few features you should look for to streamline your buying process.
1. Accuracy Is Everything
A combustion analyzer's main asset is its ability to deliver accurate data. The data is why you're buying it, so inaccuracies will render the whole device inefficient. So read up on reviews and research the brand you're buying from.
Be sure to check the warranty policy on the product, in case something does go wrong after the purchase.
2. User Interface
A combustion analyzer might sound like a complicated device to maneuver, but it shouldn't be. A good analyzer should offer standard smart features like device connectivity, touch screens, and built-in data displays. Some even come with apps that allow you to view organized data.
3. Size Does Matter
The third thing you should consider is portability. A few years back, combustion analyzers were huge devices that needed to be lugged around. Now, along with a smart interface that's simple to use, being able to carry one around whenever you need it is a huge plus.
Luckily, some brands specialize in analyzers that are small enough for you to hold in your hand.
Keep in mind that ideally, you'd like to use your product for as long as possible. And during that time, sensor replacements may have to be made, filters replaced, and calibrations will have to be done.
So, while buying your analyzer ask several questions about its longevity and be sure to check company policy on repairs, part replacements and so on.
5. Battery Life
And finally, if you are buying a smart combustion analyzer, you will have to check the battery life. How many hours does it offer? How often do you have to recharge your device?
Also, consider the kind of battery being used.
Generally, you would want at least 4-6 hours of operating time through your device.
When It's the Right Combustion Analyzer, It's Worth the Investment
A good combustion analyzer will be more of an investment to you than a cost. Not only will it help you improve efficiency in your appliances, but it will also let you make adjustments on oil or gas systems. However, do keep in mind that not all analyzers come with these features, so do a lot of research and comparisons before you make your purchase.
