    I just request a quote for the ecom-D combustion analyzer and the ecom-DP (differential pressure manometer). It looks like you need to buy the ecom-D with the built-in printer and they don't have a Bluetooth or iR type thermal printer option. The case it comes in looks well made as well.

    Have you been using the ecom-d combustion analyzer for a while? Is it's closest competition Wohler? It seems that the Germans own the combustion analyzer market.

    Thanks for you input. I really appreciate it. These analyzers look like their made extremely well. I need to check to see what their warranty is on the analyzer and the sensors. I think the closes ecom rep for me is in buffalo, NY and I'm in NJ.

    It works with the same style IR printer that both Bacharach and Testo use (or they are so similar I cant tell the diff) I’ll post a pic of mine.

    Ive been using mine for about a year now.

    What do you guys work on where you use those analyzers?

    Esp with the extra 30' of hose.

    I needed the 30 ft hose for refinery work, were they frown on phone use.

    Stacks are about 25 to 30 ft up.

    Cleaver Brooks - Nebraska series.

    They’re watertube boilers. The refinery has them set up as back ups for the main field built boilers (the massive stacks you see for miles)

    And I have both the standard hose and the 30 ft hose. Mostly I use the standard.

    Anyone ever hear of SYSTRONIK combustion analyzers?

    http://www.kwe-tech.com/index.php?se...zer%20STx.html

    Just curious. I found it them by accident.

    Thanks for the pictures. I think you helped me make my decision. I really didn't want to own another Testo or Bacarach. Is that the ecom-d or -b you have?

    That looks like a Condition 1 brand hard case you have the analyzer in. They are not bad for the price when comparing them to Pelican.

    Oh and the battery life is outstanding, especially compared to a Testo 320/330 the last one I had, would run out of charge constantly. So I always had to have a cord when doing combustion which I really hated.



    It will also run and charged while plugged in.

    I have not, but it looks like a nifty analyzer. but until I meet a rep with one, I probably wont go after one.

    One of my requirements is limited downtime. Especially in the winter, I cant go without a working analyzer.

    I visited the Systronik factory in 1992(!), when I was Enginering manager at Bacharach. Good people solid products. No source to buy them in USA at this time.

    Down time is also a major issue with my work as well. Testo and Wohler are only a day shipping away. I could actually drive to testo’s hq and drop it off if I had too. The company do have a few testo units that are used by other techs but they don’t have the training and experience that I do so the more simple the better. If their is a real issue I will be sent out. I couldn’t imagine working on any type of heating system without my analyzer.

    I’m definitely going for the Ecom-D analyzer. I didn’t see if they had a combustion air temp probe available or included. I know it’s only really used for efficiency calculations but I like to have the option.

    Just using a combustion analyzer on a customers system can Truly impress them because ”i’ve never seen anyone use one of those on my furnace! What does that do? Why didn't any other company use one of those? Umm......”
