Testo’s winter deals, which are valid until the 30th April 2021, include a free Testo 830-T2 IR Thermometer with every Testo 327-1 and 320B Flue Gas Analyser Kit, as well as new Testo 300 FGA models and kits at promotional prices. To accompany this range of winter 2021 offers, Testo has compiled a helpful white paper, which offers useful tips, diagrams and data, to aid engineers with conducting checks on heating systems quickly and safely.
Testo’s fifteen-page white paper is titled, ‘Carry out measuring tasks on heating systems efficiently and safely’, and offers advice on the following the topics.
Functional Testing and Settings for Gas-Fired Systems
This section is concerned with checking and commissioning atmospheric gas boilers and condensing boilers. It includes the following subsections:
- Checking the gas connection pressure
- Setting the gas-air ratio
- Preparing the flue gas analyser
- Determining the flue gas loss
- Calculating the efficiency (ŋ)
- Measuring the flue draught
- Measuring the CO concentration
- Flue gas channel inspection
- Maintenance of the analyser
This chapter provides information on:
- Checking nitrogen oxides
- Ambient CO measurement
- Ambient CO2 measurement
Functional Testing and Settings for Oil-Fired Systems
This section details the settings and measurements required to commission non-condensing appliances such as low-temperature boilers with forced-draught oil burners. It covers the following topics:
- Measuring the smoke number
- Settings for oil burners
