Baseline-MOCON Inc., a subsidiary of MOCON, has further strengthened its perceived leadership in the field of gas detection by announcing the release of its new versatile total hydrocarbon analyzer, capable of single or multipoint analysis and featuring a compact, lightweight new design.

The newly released Series 9000 Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer has an active range from less than 10 ppb (parts per billion) on the high sensitivity version and up to 100% as methane on the percent level version. Standard outputs include alarm and fault relays, 0-20mA or 4-20mA analog, or the suggested digital options, RS-232 or Ethernet. Configurations can also include components for single or multipoint analysis.

In terms of the unit’s uniquely compact and ultra-light design, the Series 9000 analyser weighs in at less than 20 lbs, making it over 1200 cubic inches smaller and 10 lbs lighter than previous models or series.

The FlowGuard electronic control of the fuel, air, and sample delivery to the flame ionization detector (FID), with automatic ignition, improves safety, performance, and sensitivity, while alarms levels and calibration intervals are all programmable - making the unit operable with minimal experience.

Featuring increased built-in software options, navigated by a large graphical display and easy to use menu system, the new product eliminates the need for external computing and also boasts an integrated help menu, on-board diagnostics, factory and local contact information, and an on-board service reminder for preventative maintenance.
