The Baseline® Series 9000 NMHC is a specialized member of the extraordinary Series 9000 family of gas analyzers. The Series 9000 is the candidate of choice whenever accurate, reliable total, Methane, and Non Methane analysis is required. The Series 9000 analyzer provides unparalleled flexibility and offers continuous, fully automated gas analysis over a broad range of concentrations.

The Series 9000 NMHC is designed to measure the total, methane, and non-methane hydrocarbon content of gas samples. The analyzer has a generous complement of analog, digital and logic output capabilities.

The analyzer is based on a flame ionization detector (FID) with FlowGuard electronic control that delivers a small portion of the sample gas to the detector flame. During the combustion process, organic or hydrocarbon-based gases in the sample are ionized then they are detected by the instrument and reported as a concentration.

The Series 9000 NMHC can be configured with internal components for single or multipoint analysis of non-condensing gas samples. The automatic calibration feature enhances the long-term analytical stability of the instrument. These features place the instrument well ahead of the competition in performance, automation, and configurability.
