New Oxygen Analyzer From Michell Instruments Provides Cost Savings

Companies save money on costs and maintenance with the new zirconium-oxide based transportable oxygen analyzer from Michell Instruments.

The XZR400BM oxygen analyzer is a small and light transportable instrument, capable of taking readings of both trace and percentage oxygen levels. It has been introduced to meet the demands of companies that wish to take routine readings from multiple sample points, and is a highly cost-effective solution. The instrument is capable of taking readings on a low flow rate – just 2 l/h – which means less waste of the sample gas from the process.

Based on Michell’s MSRS Zirconia oxygen sensor, the XZR400BM gives fast readings – 11 seconds for T90 – saving the operator working time when collecting field readings. As with all Michell’s XZR range, the instrument is highly stable, giving reliable results over a long time. A key benefit of the instrument is its low cost of ownership: unlike electro-chemical sensors, which require regular replacement, the MSRS sensor of the XZR400BM should last in excess of 7 years. Calibration is not needed as frequently either (every 3 to 6 months) and can be carried out with just one calibration gas, saving time and money.

The instrument also features an intuitive touch-screen interface to enable fast and easy operation without the need to invest in extensive training. This is useful when multiple operators work with the instrument. It also has a switch-mode power supply, operating from mains power between 90 and 264 V AC with an IEC cable. At just 13 lbs, and with a small footprint, the XZR400BM is both easy to move and also takes up minimal bench space.
