Description
Bacharach's all new PCA 3 is the definitive combustion and emissions analyzer that enables fast and accurate measure for on-demand or semi-continuous sampling of light industrial, institutional, commercial and residential furnaces, boilers and appliances.

Busy technicians and boiler contractors who need to ensure safe operating conditions, determine combustion efficiency and perform emissions testing rely on Bacharach's PCA 3. This lightweight handheld instrument is the industry?s first advanced portable combustion analyzer with a full color graphic display for superior visibility and user-friendly interface. Super bright backlighting, zoom display feature, dimming mode function and the most sensor configuration in its class provides the user with best-in-class instrumentation. In addition to the included Oxygen (O2) and Carbon Monoxide (CO) sensors, the PCA 3 can be ordered with CO (high), Nitric Oxide (NO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) sensors or the sensors can be added in the field without down time, using the B-Smart technology to save downtime and calibration costs.

Features:
  • Large, full color graphic display with bright backlighting, zoom display and dimming mode
  • Sturdy metal gas and draft connectors
  • Uses up to 6 electrochemical sensors (field-upgradeable)
  • Unique B-Smart sensor technology saves downtime and calibration costs
  • Ten different fuels (with ability to load customer fuels
  • Automatic CO over-range protection
  • Measures and displays flue gas flue gas ocygen, carbon monoxide, stack temperature, combustion air temperature, combustion air temperature, draft and different pressure
  • Loss and efficiency are calculated from standard heat-loss calculations or using the Siegert formula for Europe
  • Multilingual display
  • Battery Life: 10 hours of continuous operation. Optional AC power adapter
Includes:
  • Hard carrying case
  • Rubber boot
  • 12" probe assembly
