Elster® EnCal 3000

Brand: Elster Instromet

The Honeywell Elster® EnCal 3000 is a gas chromatograph specially designed for natural gas energy measurements.

This state-of-the-art analyzer uses chromatography components based on the latest micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and capillary column technique. 

This results in highly repeatable and accurate analysis results. The compact, explosion proof design includes the analytical hardware, stream selection and all required electronics for standalone operation.
