Model 4000VM - Heated Vacuum Chemiluminescence



The 4000VM relies on the heated vacuum chemilumenscence method of nitric oxide gas detection and has the capability to measure raw combustion exhaust gases. The 4000VM featrues a 191 degree C heated sampling system and filter which is easily removed from the rear panel for cleaning or replacement. This NO/ NOx gas analyzer also features a cooled photomultiplier detector for absolute stabilityand low level sensitivity, temperature-controlled reaction chamber and a two-year life neon ozonator lamp. As part of a system, measurement can be made of NO/NO2/NH3 to sub-ppm levels without loss of NO2 or dilution errors. Appropriate for new permit catalyst, SCR and gas turbine applications and combustion research.

The new compact model 4000VM Oxides of Nitrogen Gas Analyzer is designed for the continuous monitoring of NO and NOx gas for combustion research and compliance monitoring in industrial and automotive and gas turbine applications.

The gas analyzer has a totally automatic microprocessor-based operation including auto-stertup, auto-calibration, auto-range, internal parameter monitoring and alarms. This makes the instrument ideal as a 'smart' stand-alone unit or as a 'building block' for systems integration via a RS-232 communications port or remote contact closures. Automatic diagnostics and fully-configurable alarms are also integral to the gas analyzer. Standard analog outputs are scaled simultaneous 0-10VDC and 4-20mA for NO concentration and range ID voltage level.

A large multifunction, backlit LCD provides a clear display of gas NOx concentration measurement, range, sample gas flowrate and the status of critical operating parameters including sample flow, pressure, temperature, DC and bias power supplies. The intuitive, menu-driven interface and soft key buttons enable the operator to quickly configure and control the monitor's function. The unit features 19' rack mounting at 3 RU height external vacuum and bypass pumps and a total weight of 73 Lb. It has a dual voltage capability of 115 Vac and 230 Vac which is switchable from the rear panel.
