    Combustion Analyzer question

    I am a manufactures rep and I m in the market for an electronic combustion analyzer. I am hoping to gather some non bias opinions of likes and dislikes.

    Any information would be appreciated.

  • Testo 330-1s

    & 325M are our work horses. Have a PCA 65 that has performed well. UEI EM150 Manometer for draft, damper pressure, & low pressure gas. Note: Testos consistently read less CO than Bacharach. Techs prefer the 330-1s.

    Being a penny pincher: I like the charging feature of the 330-1 vs. batteries in the 325M & PCA. Testo reliability is outstanding & Bacharach seems to have gotten their repair act together. The 330-1 has features we have not even used & upgrades are available on Testo's web site. Since you are a rep: I recommend getting NOX on whatever you choose, Nuff said.

    Testo, Bacharach, TSI, & Kane-May(UEI) all make decent and dependable equipment. At least two their reps monitor this site(Testo & Bacharach) and they are top of the line. I have used and sold all the above. Each has its benefits and possible shortcomings. TSI has recently worked the best for me but I do not discourage the use of any of the others.

    I was the UEI Rep for 17 years. I recently switched to a Bacharach tech 60. I found it to respond much faster and be very reliable. I tested at least 50 boilers this heating season and the unit was flawless. The unit will do CO and CO2, eff.

    We use the Bacharach Pro 125. The big trick is keeping it dry. If you do this it is very reliable. Has a 2 year warranty too which they are very good about honoring.
