Gas Analyzers Measure Oxygen For a Variety of Applications

A zirconia oxygen sensor can calibrate to obtain readings from less than 1 ppm to 100% volume

The Model RS4 drive nut provides smooth, backlash-free linear motion for laboratory and medical equipment.

Analyzers allow for fast and accurate analysis of oxygen gas in applications ranging from gas purity to vacuum-leak detection. Each Rapidox 2100 and Rapidox 3100 from CEA Instruments (Emerson, NJ) comes with software for data logging.

The products are simple to calibrate using any two oxygen concentrations in the range of the analyzer. The display and outputs are all user-programmable.

The 2100 is a transportable version with remote sensor head. The sensor head is a zirconia ceramic tube heated to 650°C. The analyzer supplies this through a 2-m pump, which is provided. An optional air pump can be used to provide a smooth flow of gas drawn in from flexible tubing.

The 3100 model is a fixed version with a built-in air pump and internal sensor. The unit is available as bench-mounted or panel-mounted.

The company offers many different portable, personal, and fixed systems available for monitoring various toxic gases, combustible gases, and oxygen.
