More info

PCA®3 is the new Bacharach's combustion and emissions analyzer, that enables fast and accurate measurement for on-demand or semi-continuous sampling of light industrial, institutional, commercial and residential furnaces, boilers and appliances. PCA®3 is lightweight handleld combustion and emisions analyzer for service technicians and boiler contractors who need to determine combustion efficiency and perform emissions testing and ensure safe operating conditions. Directly measures and displays Flue Gas Oxygen (O2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Stack Temperature, Draft, Differential Pressure, Combustion Air Temperature and optionally measures and displays Nitric Oxide (NO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2). The PCA®3 simultaneously calculates and displays Combustion Efficiency (EFF), Excess Air (EA), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), NOx and Oxygen reference values. Additionally, the PCA®3 performs combustion calculations for ten different fuels and uses up to six field upgradable electrochemical sensors. Large, bright full-color graphic display, makes reading combustion and emissions test results in any work environment so easy as never before!

FEATURES:
• Uses up to 6 electrochemical sensors – field-upgradable
• Unique B-Smart® sensor technology saves downtime and calibration costs
• Measures and displays lue gas oxygen, carbon monoxide, stack temperature, combustion air temperature, draft and differential pressure
• Loss and eficiency are calculated from standard heat-loss calculations or using the Siegert formula for Europe
• Automatic CO over-range protection
• Ten different fuels – ability to load custom fuels
• Large full color graphic display with bright backlighting, zoom display and dimming mode 
• Multilingual display
• Sturdy metal gas and draft connectors
