Chell Launch New Smoke Meter to Tackle Gas Turbine Emissions

Chell Instruments has launched a new variant of their popular smoke meter for measuring emissions from gas turbines and jet engines.

The rugged new CSM2001 MFC Smoke Meter is a rack or bench-top mountable measurement system, using the latest mass flow controller technology to improve accuracy and meet SAE ARP1179 requirements.

Increasing awareness of the impact of emissions from engines on the atmosphere has driven demand for accurate measurement. Chell Instruments recognised the demand for smoke meters with increased sensitivity, improved accuracy, and rapid response are needed to measure the smoke levels emitted by modern jet engines.

Nick Broadley Managing Director at Chell Instruments said: “Much of our product range has resulted from customer enquiries. After successful trial, they’ve gone into production. The CSM2001 MFC Smoke Meter is a great example of that.”

By using a measurement system like the CSM2001 MFC Smoke Meter you can ensure that an engine isn't emitting high levels of harmful gases. It utilises the flexibility and accuracy of mass flow controller technology in place of a dry gas diaphragm meter and manual flow control valve. “It’s smaller, faster and more accurate than our original CSM2000, which means it minimises costly test time,” said Nick.

It has an LCD captouch display, totaliser, rate and temperature readings and leak, sample and manual modes with fully customisable test programming. It also has a bypass function and a flow rate of up to 20 l/min.

Chell Instruments are leading producers of pressure, vacuum and gas flow measurement and control solutions designed by engineers for use by engineers. They have provided high-precision instrumentation for more than 40 years, to industries including Formula One, aerospace and pharmaceuticals.
