MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 11 A new sophisticated gas analyzer thatmeasures carbon dioxide (CO2) under pressure extremes has been developed bySensor Electronics of Minneapolis.
CO2 dilutes explosive concentrations of ethylene oxide (EtO) in, forexample, medical equipment sterilizers and research laboratories. (EtO is bothtoxic and extremely flammable.)
Because of intermolecular energy transfer between EtO and CO2 (andnitrogen, oxygen, H20) under pressure, accurate CO2 measurement is virtuallyimpossible.
Unlike erratic readings with conventional CO2 detectors, this new analyzerignores the transient extremes to give precise CO2 measurements through thecycle.
The analyzer uses twin source-to-sensor pulsating infrared beams, thuseliminating mirrors/lenses/splitters, and problems with dust, dirt,condensation, contamination and misalignment.
It also shrugs off temperature and humidity extremes. Self-correctingcircuitry means the analyzer can work for years without fussy adjustment orrecalibration.
The analyzer even keeps a watchful eye on itself, flashing immediatewarning of any internal problems, then spelling out what's wrong where.
The unit can link up with printers, plotters, loggers, and computers tomake a permanent record of fast-changing CO2 values.
