Have a ten year old Bacharach Fyrite pro that keeps giving me trouble ( just serviced in Dec, now will not read stack temps) , want to upgrade. I test oil burners and gas equipment any ideas? Thanks

    Combustion analyzers:

    I hear the best about Wohlers and Testo 327's. They are field servicable and don't need to be sent back for repair and recalibration.

    Wohler hands down.

    We have Wohler's and Testo's both.  IMHO, the Wohler gives you quicker feedback to changes.  The vacuum pump seems more rugged.  The accessories, are a little pricier, but the performance is worth it.

    Not a knock on the Testo at all.  Both are top notch.  Like comparing a Lexus to a Mercedes.

    Good Luck.

    We have a UEI C50 and I have been extremely pleased with it. Very easy to use and seems quite rugged.

    UEi50 UEi75

    What features is the UEi units lacking vs the Testo 327 & Bacharach Fyrite Insight have? The UEi is a third of the price.

    I had that cheap UEI.....

    returned it after 1 month.... was not impressed. Just plain did not work right. #'s  were way off.

    If the fyrite won't read stack temp, it might just be the wiring connection. Did you take apart the plug? I see this all the time as we have 50 125 Pro's. I've never seen a bad unit that causes this.

    I've also seen where the other end of the probe is bad. In that case I just replace the probe/hose assembly.

    Have the thermocouple in the

    probe replaced. Before doing so make sure it is not touching the inside of the metal probe.
