EnCal 3000 proChain

Brand: Elster Instromet

As the number of gas sources continues to grow, the amount of measuring points required, grow exponentially. Honeywell provides an affordable solution to measure natural gas.

With the new EnCal 3000 proChain, Honeywell sets a new standard in cost effective gas chromatography for natural gas.

It provides accurate determination of all main natural gas parameters –heating value, Wobbe index, density, CO2 concentration – while keeping CAPEX and OPEX to a minimum.

Reducing the overall size of the measurement device results in the lowest carrier gas usage in the market, as low as 2 millilitres per minute. This means only one bottle of helium (50 litres @ 200 barg) every seven years.

High performance, high speed and high accuracy, the EnCal 3000 proChain is simple to operate and maintain.
