Hello all with out creating a huge brand war I'am in the market for a combustion analyzer. The two I have been looking at is the (here we go) Eagle 2 by UEI, and Testo 325 or 330. If you have any feed back on these please let me know or if you know of a better one, any info would be great.

I have been using this analyzer (http://search.tsi.com/cgi-bin/MsmGo.exe?grab_id=0&EXTRA_ARG=_CTL0_SUBMIT%3DSearch&CFGNAME=MssFindEN.cfg&host_id=42&page_id=715&query=CA6130&hiword=CA6130%20) since March & love it.
The response time is very fast & you can save up to 20 readings while testing, makes it nice while testing.

Make sure you get one with a printer attachment. We did a big school account which required printouts of any boiler setup, gas or oil. More industrial and institutional customers are requiring the same. Even for residential, It is a good insurance piece.

Just got my Testo 330 yesterday. Been looking at them for a while. I like Testo stuff, Testo and Fluke is all I own. Just my opinion and preference. Until december, Testo has a deal where if you buy the 330, it comes with a free 318 scope tool. And the 330 comes in a hard case, along with an infrared (sp?) printer. I priced out the 330 couple months ago, and that was the price I paid, so I know they didn't jack up the price for the free scope. They have some mention of this deal on their website, but i can't find it right now.

thanks for the info so far. The printer is a must thats why I was looking at those 2 so far. The free scope is also playing a role in my decision (I saw it advertised in RSES magizine) But I don't want to spend the money on somthing thats junk just to get something for free.

Consider one of the Bacharach combustion analyzers. They also have the printer option. I have a Bacharach and and love it.
If it matters, Bacharach instruments are made in the USA. I think Testo is made over seas.

TSI & Bacharach are the only analyzers I know of that have quick enough response times to detect light off conditions.
The pumps in the Testo units are not that strong meaning a slow response time.

My Bach. tech 60 has broken twice within 3 years. The first time the pump stopped operating; repaired under warrenty. The second time(recently) the O2 displays at 0%.I am seriously debating on the CA-CALC 6100 series or the 6203 model.

Read this thread, it will change your mind about the Testo. Return it now if you can.
