Michell Instruments has launched a new lightweight oxygen analyzer to provide accurate and cost-effective control of oxygen from 500ppm O2 to oxygen purity in safe area applications. The XTP501 Oxygen Analyzer uses Michell’s tried and tested thermo-paramagnetic technology for highly accurate and stable measurements. These sensors are non-depleting and will last for the life of the instrument under normal operation which keeps the cost of ownership low since only minimal maintenance is required and there are no consumable parts to replace.
The analyzer offers users a choice of ranges to ensure the best accuracy for specific applications. There are six available ranges to choose from: 0-1/21/25% O2 & 20/80/90 to 100% O2 which are ideal for a wide range of application needs from monitoring trace oxygen in inert gases to ensuring the purity of oxygen generated for use as an industrial gas. The XTP501 is a highly stable instrument at ±0.25% of span per month and accurate to ±0.02% O2, making it one of the best-performing analyzers in its class. Because they have no moving parts or liquid components thermo-paramagnetic oxygen sensors are robust and not affected by vibration or sudden shocks.
With a lightweight IP55-rated casing, the analyzer is compact and easily installed. Suitable for indoor installation, the IP55 case makes it robust enough for most industrial safe-area conditions such as food and beverage production, non-hazardous installations and small-scale industrial gas production. It has an intuitive touch screen interface that is easy to use, interrogate and set up.
