New Series 2300 Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer

Press release date: May 21, 2014

BETHLEHEM, Penn — GOW-MAC® Instrument Company, a leading manufacturer of gas analysis instrumentation and compressed gas handling equipment, introduces the next generation of its total hydrocarbon analyzer, the Series 2300 Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer.  The Series 2300 microprocessor-controlled instrument is designed to continuously measure concentrations of hydrocarbons and, utilizing an optional catalytic methanizer, CO and CO2 in gas streams. An alternative version is also available for beverage-grade CO2 applications.

The Series 2300 employs a flame ionization detector (FID) where ionized carbon atoms are produced when burned in a hydrogen flame. The ionized atoms are detected by the instrument and displayed as a concentration in ppm or ppb on an LCD. A high resolution graphical LCD touchscreen accompanied with a membrane keypad allows for straightforward navigation through settings and functions.

Engineered to operate on either zero grade H2, a 40/60% H2/N2 or a 40/60% H2/He fuel mix, the instrument features auto ranging from 0.00 ppm to 20,000 ppm; auto zero and auto calibration; programmable relays for concentration alarms, events and diagnostics; electronic flow control of air, fuel, and sample gas; real-time data logging; a flame-out indicator with auto shut-off of gases for safety; and a full array of optional output capabilities, i.e., 4-20 mA, VDC [0-1 V, 0-1 mV, 0-10 V, RS-232, RS-485, USB, and Ethernet, along with MODBUS & PROFINET [read only communication protocols. Samples can be introduced by an optional internal pump or by pressurized tanks.

The instrument provides long term stability and accurate performance in gas manufacturing facilities and laboratory applications, such as:
• Gas purity certification
• UHP inert gas contaminant analysis
• Carbon bed breakthrough detection
• HC monitoring in CO2 feed streams in the food/beverage industry
• Process monitoring
• Monitoring ambient air and other gases
• Monitoring of HC emissions
• R&D laboratory applications
