Photoacoustic Gas Monitor

Model: INNOVA 1412i

"The LumaSense Photoacoustic Gas Monitor INNOVA 1412i is a highly accurate, reliable and stable quantitative field gas monitor. Its measurement principle is based on the photoacoustic infrared detection method. This means that the 1412i can measure almost any field gas that absorbs infrared light. Appropriate optical filters (up too 5 + water vapor) are instaled in the filter carousel so that it can selectively measure the concentration of up to 5 component gases and water vapor in any air sample.

Can be use for:

Emission monitoring of green-house gases from agricultural production, Exhaust from chemical processes, Indoor Air-quality (IAQ) and ventilation measurements, Occupational health and safety measurements - of possible production or accumulation of toxic/carcinogenic substances in working areas, Monitoring of anaesthetic gases in hospitals, etc."
