GazCal Chlorine Gas Generator for Site and Laboratory Test and Calibration
Mar 01 2018
Some gases are highly reactive and difficult to handle and store using traditional cylinders. Chlorine is one of these gases. With traditional cylinders, accuracy and shelf life of stored gas is extremely poor. To overcome such problems, the GazCal Gas Generator was developed for Chlorine (Cl2) by Euro-Gas Ltd.
The GazCal is a rugged, portable, battery-operated unit suitable for test and calibration both in the laboratory and on-site.
Utilised across many industries worldwide, it proves particularly popular with water authorities and for water treatment.
The unit needs little warm-up time and can be operated by non-technical personnel, providing fast test and calibration source. It is also used as surrogate gas for the cross-calibration of Chlorine Dioxide ClO2, Ozone O3 and Fluorine F3 equipment.
Housed in portable black robust carrying case, measuring just 240mm x 110mm x 220mm, the GazCal has a generating range of 0.5ppm – 20ppm at 0.5 or 1.0 litre/minute flow rate options. Low range, mid range and full range Chlorine calibration options are offered.
A particular advantage of the GazCal Chlorine Gas Generator is that cell life is only consumed when the unit is switched on and used for calibration purposes. Unlike cylinders of chlorine gas mixtures, where there will be a shelf life of up to 6 months normally. Gas cylinders will only provide a defined gas mixture concentration too, for example 5ppm Chlorine. But the GazCal Generator is completely adjustable in the range 0.5ppm to 20.0ppm in 0.1ppm increments. Moreover, low concentrations of Chlorine gas mixtures can reliably be produced with the GazCal including 1ppm and 2ppm levels whereas it is difficult to provide cylinder stability at such concentration levels.
