NEW! Combustion Check Meter. Flue Tests You Need Without All the Extras You Don't.

Fieldpiece's introduces the SOX2 combustion check meter. The SOX2 measures % oxygen and temperature and calculates % carbon dioxide and % excess air in flue gas. Most technicians don't need a full-on combustion analysis to tune a system. Heating appliance manufacturers often provide targets for %O2, temperature, and %CO2 in flue gas. Some are now including targets for % Excess Air. The SOX2 gives technicians the measurements they need without the costly extras of full-on combustion analyzers. See for more on the SOX2.
