AMETEK releases new Western Research Model 9900 gas analyzer

Oilfield Technology,

AMETEK Process Instruments has announced the release of the Western Research® Model 9900RM, an advanced UV gas analyzer suitable for single or multi component quantitative measurements.

The new analyser measures UV-absorbable gas phase species with maximum accuracy and precision. It can be configured to measure nearly any gas species that absorbs energy in the UV range. Up to five components can be measured simultaneously, making the system highly economical for multi component analysis needs.

The Model 9900 features high intensity, line source lamps, which deliver reliable dry gas analysis with a fixed wavelength, with resolution 0.02 nm and accuracy to 1% of full scale. Interference prevention from moisture or CO2 allows for precise readings. An optional paragnetic oxygen sensor is also offered to provide O2 corrected concentrations.

A six position filter wheel enables one reference and five measurement wavelengths. The dual beam configuration, combined with the reference measurement, ensures low noise performance with minimal baseline and span drift.

The user-friendly keyboard enables programming of such variables as timing and frequency of local zero and span checks. Both analog and digital inputs are available as well as serial communications via Modbus/RS485 and Ethernet/web interface.

The Model 9900 meets relative accuracy test audits (RATA) testing requirements and can be rack, wall, or bench mounted. The unit additionally offers unparalleled reliability and digital connectivity.
