    Enerac 700 Portable Combustion Gas Analyser Overview

    This portable combustion analyser is perfect for gathering extremely accurate and reliable data for internal needs as well as for the necessary emissions reporting requirements for local, district,  and governmental agencies. The Model 700 Is perfect for S.C.A.Q.M.D. compliance requirements (and the other CA districts) EPA compliance tests (i.e. ctm 30, ASTM - 6522, ctm 34, for CO, NOx requirements etc.), method 2 (stack gas velocity), and method 25B (Hydrocarbons).

    The Enerac Model 700 is hand-held, weighs 2.8kg  is easy to operate with no technical expertise is needed.

    The Model 700 units are rugged, made with a metal case and considered the workhorse of the industry withstanding years of use and abuse. No one makes a more affordable, accurate, rugged, reliable and sophisticated portable combustion emissions analyzer than Enerac. Enerac custom builds all units and can engineer sensor ranges and options to customer requirements for their respective application(s) at hand.

    The back of the unit has easy thumb screws to pop off the backplate for easy replacement of sensors. Sensors are field replaceable (the unit does not need to be sent back to the factory for sensor replacement). The Model 700 also has the ability to be field calibrated without having to send the unit back to the factory!

    The Enerac Model 700 is fully upgradeable (one can order new sensors and options to the same unit over time). The Model 700 also has a standard sample conditioning system (thermoelectric condenser also called a peltier cooler) necessary for the proper detection and measurement of both NO2 and/or SO2 gases. The Model 700 also has proper control over the NO sensor's tendency to drift over time with increasing ambient temperatures. The Enerac Model 700’s NO SEM sensor incorporates a proprietary temperature control system
    designed to automatically hold the nominal filter and sensor temperatures at < 30 degrees C. This ultimately prevents rising measurement data drift and maintains the actual lower readings of the NO (NOx). This in turn  prevents one from overstating one’s NO (NOx) emissions. The Enerac Model 700 combines a high-quality tubing (Viton hose with its specific dimensions and flow rate) along with an accurate and reliable conditioning system (Peltier cooler) with the additional benefits of the extremely accurate SEM sensors. The result is a Compliance-Level Emissions Analyzer that produces reliable, accurate data in the palms of your hands.

    The Enerac Model 700 comes with 500 internal storage buffers for storing collected data during a testing event. With Enerac’s free Enercom software, one can use it during the testing event or download the stored data at a later date. There is a serial port (RS 232 port), USB port and Blue tooth for communicating with  your computer.

    The Enerac Model 700 is one of the most accurate and reliable portable combustion emission analysers in the world.
