Model 10/2 Hydrocarbon Analyzer -
FID Dual Channel, Spot Heated Total Hydrocarbon Analyzer

Model 10/2 Hydrocarbon Analyzer

The VIG Industries, Inc. Model-10/2 is a dual channel, microprocessor based, spot heated total hydrocarbon gas analyzer designed for high accuracy, sensitivity and stability.

The Model-10/2 uses two flame ionization detectors (FID) for continuous measurement of two independent dry sample streams at ambient temperature. The FID are spot heated to prevent condensation, and to provide repeatable, reliable performance in the analysis of a wide variety of hydrocarbon concentrations in gaseous mixtures or in ambient air.
