Model 6400T / 6400E Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) Analyzer
Teledyne Analytical Instruments (TAI) 6400T uses a proven UV fluorescence principle coupled with state-of-the-art Microprocessor technology to provide accurate and dependable measurements of low level SO2.
The 6400T-H2S measures hydrogen sulfide (H2S) by incorporating a catalytic converter set at 600°F (315°C) to oxidize H2S into SO2 while leaving other more difficult to oxidize sulfurs unconverted. A switching mode allows analysis of both H2S and SO2 concurrently.
Exceptional stability is achieved with the use of an optical shutter to compensate for PMT drift and a reference detector to correct for changes in UV lamp intensity.
A hydrocarbon “kicker” and advanced optical design combine to prevent inaccuracies due to interference. The multi-tasking software gives real time indication of many operational parameters and provides automatic alarms if diagnostic limits are exceeded.
The 6400T offers an advanced color display, capacitive touch screen, intuitive user interface, flexible I/O, and built-in data acquisition capability. It includes a built-in data acquisition capability using the analyzer’s own internal memory. This allows the logging of multiple parameters including averaged or instantaneous concentration values, calibration data and operating parameters such as flow, pressure and lamp intensity.
Stored data are easily retrieved through the front panel or via RS232, Ethernet, or USB ports either locally or by remote connection using the included APIcomTM software. These innovative features allow operators to perform predictive diagnostics and enhanced data analysis by tracking parameter trends. The 6400T combines lighter weight, rugged construction, ease of use, powerful diagnostics, modular design and outstanding performance to meet air monitoring requirements.
- Detect low trace levels of SO2 in medical air and medical oxygen to satisfy USA and European pharmacopeia requirements.
- Detect trace levels of H2S in methane-rich Bio-Gas streams used as the feed for fuel cell power generation devices. The H2S impurities, which can poison the platinum based catalyst, are converted into SO2 on a 1:1 basis via Teledyne’s THC converter. The resultant converted sample gas is then fed to the 6400T for continuous analysis purposes.
