Bacharach Portable Combustion Analyzers Compliant to New AHRI Standard 1260 for Device Performance
Bacharach, Inc., a leading provider of HVAC-R gas instrumentation and combustion analysis solutions, announces voluntary compliance with AHRI Standard 1260 for their Insight® Plus and InTech® handheld combustion analyzers.
The recently ratified AHRI Standard 1260 specifies requirements for performance rating of portable flue combustion analyzers measuring specific combustion flue gas products of heating appliances for residential and light commercial applications using fuels including natural gas, propane, and light and heavy fuel oil. Performance parameters include measurement range, resolution, accuracy, response time, and usability. Compliance to the standard ensures an objective level of performance as determined by industry experts.
The AHRI 1260 closely parallels the European Standard EN 50379, with the exception of a combustion efficiency equation for North America. Bacharach analyzers are also certified to EN 50379 and use the Siegert efficiency equation for Europe. The release of the new standard provides additional confidence to the HVAC contractor that their flue gas measurements are accurate and consistent among all AHRI 1260 compliant analyzers.
Bacharach Insight® Plus and InTech® combustion analyzers enable HVAC technicians to inspect and tune residential and light commercial furnaces and boilers for optimal performance. The analyzers are supported by pre-calibrated, field-replaceable sensors that allow them to be calibrated by simply changing the sensors instead of using calibration gas or sending away for factory calibration. These instruments also have high-resolution displays which enables data transfer to a mobile app via QR code for report generation.
