Topic: Ammonia Analyzer

"ECO PHYSICS, INC. is proud to release two ammonia analyzers for use in research and development of NOx reduction systems. Our CLD 844 CM h and CLD 822 CM h are available for the measurement of NH3 by differential conversion technique using a chemiluminescence analyzer.

Our analyzers offer two separate reaction chambers, two converter cartridges operating at different temperatures and two distinct photo multipliers to produce simultaneous measurement and determination of NOx, NOxAmines and Ammonia (NH3). The analyzers can also be used for simultaneous determination of NO, NO2 and NOx.

One analyzer case holds the complete two reaction chamber system, so the footprint is very small. The analyzer measures 19" x 6" x 23" including built in pump and no maintenance ozone scrubber."
