GOW-MAC INSTRUMENT CO., a manufacturer of gas analysis instrumentation and compressed gas handling equipment, introduced the Series 2300 Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer, a microprocessor-controlled instrument designed to measure concentrations of hydrocarbons continuously using an optional catalytic methanizer, CO, and CO2 in gas streams.

The Series 2300 employs a flame ionization detector (FID) where ionized carbon atoms are produced when burned in a hydrogen flame. The ionized atoms are detected by the instrument and displayed as a concentration in ppm or ppb on an LCD.

A high-resolution graphical LCD touchscreen accompanied with a membrane keypad allows straightforward navigation through settings and functions.

Engineered to operate on either zero grade H2, a 40/60% H2/N2 or a 40/60% H2/He fuel mix, the instrument features auto ranging from 0.00 ppm to 20,000 ppm; auto zero and auto calibration; programmable relays for concentration alarms, events and diagnostics; electronic flow control of air, fuel, and sample gas; real-time data logging; a flame-out indicator with auto shut-off of gases for safety; and a full array of optional output capabilities, i.e., 4-20 mA, VDC [0-1 V, 0-1 mV, 0-10 V], RS-232, RS-485, USB, and Ethernet, along with MODBUS and PROFINET [read only] communication protocols.

Samples can be introduced by an optional internal pump or by pressurized tanks.

The instrument provides long-term stability and accurate performance in gas manufacturing facilities and laboratory applications, such as:
•  Gas purity certification
•  UHP inert gas contaminant analysis
•  Carbon bed breakthrough detection
•  HC monitoring in CO2 feed streams in the food/beverage industry
•  Process monitoring
•  Monitoring ambient air and other gases
•  Monitoring of HC emissions
•  R&D laboratory applications.

GOW-MAC Instrument manufactures high-performance instruments for detection, analysis, production, or supply of gases within the global industrial, medical and specialty gases industries.
