Principle Of Operation

The Map-Pak Combi, using a small gas sample from the gas flushed pack, measures and records levels of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide. The levels of gas are measured using specially customised sensors; Oxygen levels are measured by an electrochemical sensor and the Carbon Dioxide levels are measured by a nondispersive infrared sensor (NDIR). An electric pump provides a small amount of gas into the sensor. The O2 and CO2 particles are detected by the respective sensors and the measurements are displayed on the screen within seconds. The N2 level is then displayed as a balance gas reading.
