The K1550 range of analysers are ideal for measuring the % level of one gas in a binary or pseudo-binary mixture. For example, air is composed of many gases but in known, fixed ratios, therefore hydrogen in air is a pseudo-binary mixture and can be measured with the K1550.

Ranges available
(Depends upon measured/background gas)
0 – 20%, 80 – 100%, 0 – 100% for most gases
0 – 5%, for most hydrogen ranges
