SenSic - Model 225C - CO/O2 Flue Gas Sensor
The SenSiC CO/02 flue gas sensor detects the relation between the CO (carbon monoxide) and O2 (oxygen) contents in the flue gas and thereby offers better combustion efficiency and emission levels than the lambdasensor. Until now CO sensors have been unaffordable for small to medium size heaters and boilers. The sensor allows you to minimize the airflow (O2) and still avoid excess CO emissions. Thus the heat loss in the outgoing flue gas will be minimized and the CO level kept within the allowed limits. Less air flow means higher combustion temperature and thus more efficient combustion, less unwanted emissions and less soot generation. The above advantages are specifically important when using varying fuel quality and moisture contents. The features also allow lower power settings than otherwise.
