CO2 & H2O Gas Analyzers

For over 25 years, PP Systems has been manufacturing high quality CO2 & H2O infrared gas analyzers for researchers and customers from a wide variety of disciplines throughout the world.  We are considered a leader in CO2 and H2O infrared gas analysis measurement instrumentation and our analyzers are in use in over 100 countries worldwide.  Our innovative Auto-Zero Measurement Principle ensures the greatest accuracy, reliability and long term stability that many of our customers have come to expect throughout the years. 

Our CIRAS-2 SC and CIRAS-2 DC laboratory gas analyzers feature a high technical specification and quality workmanship ensuring accuracy, precision and reliability.  They are both designed to be operated through a standard PC for stand-alone operation.  Having said that, an optional 12V lead acid battery can be supplied for both instruments for portable applications if required.

CO2 & H2O Gas Analyzers: For users that demand accuracy and stability for high level research

CO2 / H2O Gas Analyzers

CIRAS-2 SC

The CIRAS-2 SC is a single channel infrared gas analyzer for accurate, absolute measurement of CO2 and H2O in Ámol mol-1 of a single gas stream.

CIRAS-SC CO2/H2O Gas Analyzer

PLEASE SEND QUOTE

The CIRAS-2 SC is a single channel infrared gas analyzer for accurate, absolute measurement of CO2 and H2O in Ámol mol-1 of a single gas stream.  It features 2 independent, non-dispersive gas analyzers for accurate, simultaneous measurement of both CO2 and H2O. There are no moving parts. The analyzers (reference and analysis) include an infrared source, gold plated and highly polished sample cells and detectors. The analyzers act as absorptiometers measuring only in the 4.26 Ám (CO2) and 2.60 Ám (H2O) wavebands ensuring accurate, rapid and stable results.    The analyzers are thermostatted and completely insulated to ensure accurate measurements under changing ambient temperatures.  This eliminates problems associated with software corrections.

Our history and expertise in CO2 & H2O infrared Gas analysis design speaks for itself. The design of the CIRAS ensures an inherent calibration stability. This has been confirmed by over 25 years experience of the technology. The CIRAS system does not require calibration. To ensure proper operation and calibration of the analyzers, we do recommend periodic checks to confirm system integrity.

Measurement Ranges

CO2: 0-2000 Ámol mol-1 (Optimal)

        0-10000 Ámol mol-1 (Maximum)

H2O: 0-Dewpoint

For measurements at elevated CO2 concentrations, the CIRAS-2 SC is factory calibrated up to 10000 Ámol mol-1 as standard.

Data Sheet

CIRAS-2 DC

The CIRAS-2 DC is a dual channel infrared gas analyzer for accurate, differential measurement of CO2 and H2O in Ámol mol-1 from 2 gas streams (reference and analysis).

PLEASE SEND QUOTE

The CIRAS-2 DC is a dual channel, true differential infrared gas analyzer featuring 4 independent gas analyzers (2 for CO2 and 2 for H2O).  The CIRAS-2 DC is capable of accurate, absolute measurement of CO2 and H2O in Ámol mol-1 of two gas streams and displays the results as the absolute concentration of one gas stream (the reference) and the difference between the two gas streams.  The analyzers (reference and analysis) include an infrared source, gold plated and highly polished sample cells and detectors. The analyzers act as absorptiometers measuring only in the 4.26 Ám (CO2) and 2.60 Ám (H2O) wavebands ensuring accurate, rapid and stable results.  As such it is capable of resolving small differences between two gas streams in real time.  The analyzers are thermostatted and completely insulated to ensure accurate measurements under changing ambient temperatures.  This eliminates problems associated with software corrections.

This type of instrument (true differential analyzer) is the preferred option for plant photosynthesis and respiration measurements where differential concentrations need to be resolved to a high degree of accuracy and precision.
