The K1550 series analysers are ideal for measuring the % level of one gas in a binary or pseudo-binary mixture. For example, air is composed of many gases but in known, fixed ratios, therefore hydrogen in air is a pseudobinary mixture and can be measured with the K1550. Hydrogen, helium, dissociated ammonia, sulphur hexafluoride and noble gases such as krypton and xenon are all well suited to this technique. In particular, katharometers are well suited to gases that have no dedicated sensor and therefore provide cost effective analysis solutions.
For hazardous area applications the sensor may be mounted remotely in the hazardous area and connected through an MTL zener barrier to the electronics unit in a safe area. Alternatively, the electronics unit can be supplied in an EExd enclosure, with a remote keypad for non-intrusive calibration, for full hazardous area use.
