The 8863 needs an external sampling system able to deliver an almost clean sample gas to the analyser at the proper temperature, pressure and flow rate.
ADEV has a wide experience in process and can provide the 8863 analyser combined with a sample and condition system designed for the specific application requirements. Contact ADEV for details.
Thermoparamagnetic 8863 Oxygen analyzer allows the selective analysis of the O2 concentration in process gases taking advantage of its evident paramagnetic property that makes it attracted by a magnetic field.
The Cell Block assembly is made of stainless steel and contains the cell cavity and pole pieces which produce two powerful magnetic fields in the cavity. Associated with each field is a thermistor pair, consisting of a measuring thermistor and reference thermistor.
The measuring thermistor is mounted in the cavity within its respective magnetic zone; the corresponding reference thermistor is mounted in the cavity just outside its magnetic zone. A sample inlet port and a sample outlet port are arranged to permit a portion of the flowing sample to diffuse into the cavity, where it comes under the influence of thermal gradients and magnetic fields. The effect of the resulting thermo-magnetic action on the thermistors provides the measuring means.
