Bacharach PCA 400 Combustion Analyzer

Bacharach’s PCA? 400 offers everything high-performance HVAC technicians need to commission, tune, maintain, and certify any boiler.

Users have the option to save measured data in the unit as discreet tests, or stream it live via Bluetooth’ communications to a PC or other smart hand-held device for compliance reporting.

Reports are easily and quickly generated to satisfy compliance requirements. Interchangeable power options (rechargeable Li-Ion, ‘AA’ alkalines, or line power) ensure the unit is always ready for use.

Probes and hoses come in a variety of lengths and materials to satisfy a wide range of applications, including NOx, and other requirements.

Automatic sensor protection not only guards against damage, but doubles their measurement range under high load conditions for increased flexibility.

Note: The PCA? 400 calculates CO2 value based upon other measured values during the combustion process. It does not measure CO2 directly.
