Michell Instruments has introduced a new compact oxygen analyser which it describes as reliable, compact and offering high levels of accuracy and low cost of ownership.

The new analyser, the XTP601, is intended for applications in hazardous and safe areas within the process, power generation and marine industries.

The XTP601 provides extremely reliable, stable and accurate oxygen analysis, combining high levels of performance with a low total cost of ownership.

Applications include oxygen measurement at the inlet of compressors in the steel or gas industries to monitor safety, or monitoring inert blanketing gases in oil tankers, chemical and pharmaceutical plants.

The XTP601 uses thermo-paramagnetic sensor technology to provide extremely stable percentage measurement of oxygen in process gases including hydrogen, nitrogen or air. The device can be configured to measure 0-1%, up to 0-50%, 80-100% and 90-100% ranges to meet the specific needs of customers and includes barometric pressure compensation, which ensures that variations in oxygen, due to changes in atmospheric pressure, are corrected.

This helps to provide extremely accurate measurements, for example it is accurate to ±0.02% O2 for a 0-1% range.

As with all devices from Michell Instruments, the company says, the XTP601 is backed by a comprehensive global support network that can provide help if required with installation, set-up and maintenance.
