1 Introduction
This manual explains how to use the GEM5000 landfill gas analyzer. The GEM5000
measures flow and calculates the calorific values of the gas as well as being a useful tool for
balancing the gas field. The GEM5000 gas analyzer may be used to monitor, calculate,
adjust and record the flow at each monitoring point.
This instrument may also be used in GA (gas analyzer) mode of operation if required. The
operator may change the analyzer between a gas extraction monitor (GEM mode) or a
landfill gas analyzer (GA Mode). The mode of operation can be changed from the ‘Special
Action’ menu. Please refer to the section ‘Taking Readings’ for further instruction.
The 5000 series of gas analyzers complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions:
1)
This device may not cause harmful interference.
2)
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
1.1 Safety instructions—English
Warning
The 5000 series of gas analyzers can be used for measuring gases
from landfill sites and other sources as described in this manual.
The operator may be exposed to harmful gases during the use of the
instrument. Inhaling these gases may be harmful to health and in
some cases may be fatal.
It is the responsibility of the user to ensure that he/she is adequately
trained in the safety aspects of the gases being used and appropriate
procedures are followed. In particular, where hazardous gases are
being used the gas exhausted from the analyzer must be piped to an
area where it is safe to discharge the gas.
Hazardous gas can also be expelled from the instrument when
purging with clean air.
 Note:
Page 8
Gas analyzers are a sensitive piece of scientific equipment, and should be
treated as such. If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the
manufacturer, the protection provided by the instrument may be impaired.


The equipment must not be used in an atmosphere of greater than 21% oxygen.

Repair of this equipment shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable
code of practice.

When used in a hazardous area only use (TP-5000 temperature probe (SIRA
11ATEX2197X and IECEx SIR11.0089X).. The analyzer should not be connected to
any other devices in the hazardous area including the 5000-USB cable (connector
A) or GEM5000 BC battery charger (connector B) supplied with the analyzer.
Do not charge, recharge or open in a potentially explosive atmosphere.
In hazardous area only use “TP-5000 Temperature Probe” in Connector B.

Connector B (Uo=5V,lo=6mA,Po=7mW,Ci=0,Li=0,Co=100uF,Lo=1000mH)
MAXIMUM NON-HAZARDOUS SUPPLIES:
Connector A - Um=6V Connector B - Um=10.1V

If the equipment is likely to come into contact with harmful substances, e.g. acidic
liquids or gases that may attack metals, or solvents that may affect polymeric
materials, then it is the responsibility of the user to take suitable precautions, e.g.
regular checks as part of routine inspections or establishing from the material’s
data sheet that it is resistant to specific chemicals that prevent it from being
adversely affected, thus ensuring that the type of protection is not compromised.

The relative pressure range is +/-200 in H20 (+/-500 mbar). Note, however, that
the input pressure should not exceed +/-200 in H20 (+/- 500 mbar) relative to
 LANDTEC

1.3 MCERTS (applied for)
MCERTS is the UK Environment Agency's Monitoring Certification Plan. The Plan provides
a framework within which environmental measurements can be made in accordance with
the Agency's quality requirements. The scheme covers a range of monitoring, sampling
and inspection activities.
The GEM5000 instrument is MCERTS certified only if:

The MCERTS logo appears on the screen after initial power on.
 Note:
MCERTS - Cross sensitivity tests using hydrogen sulfide were not carried
out on this instrument. Therefore, users should be aware if H 2S is present
on sites, as there may be an interferential effect.
MCERTS promotes public confidence in monitoring data and provides industry with a
proven framework for choosing monitoring systems and services that meet the
Environment Agency's performance requirements.
The Environment Agency has established its Monitoring Certification Scheme (MCERTS) to
deliver quality environmental measurements. The MCERTS product certification scheme
provides for the certification of products according to Environment Agency performance
standards, based on relevant CEN, ISO and national standards.
MCERTS certified instruments have been tested by an independent body to ensure that
they meet certain performance requirements. In addition the manufacturer of an MCERTS

enhance the usability and enable further analysis of data and reading information.
 Note: For more information on the features listed in this section please contact Sales
at LANDTEC at +1 (909) 783-3636 or email at [email protected]
3.2.1 Pitot tube (optional)
The GEM5000 gas analyzer enables the use of a pitot tube to aid with flow
measurement where an in situ flow device is not present. The pitot tube is used for gas
extraction systems and the pressure readings are taken in inches of water (mbar if in
metric). Gas flow is calculated in the analyzer in SCFM (m3/hr if in metric).
3.2.2 Temperature probe (optional)
The GEM5000 gas analyzer has the facility to automatically display and record the
sample temperature via an optional temperature probe.
When a temperature probe is fitted the temperature reading will be displayed on the
‘Main Gas Read Screen’ and recorded with all other data.
 Note:
Page 16
Temperature probes with an Ex label are part of the GEM5000 Ex
certification SIRA 11ATEX2197X and IECEx SIR11.0089X, and therefore
certified for use under the same conditions as the analyzer.

3.2.3 H2S filter (optional)
The GEM5000 gas analyzer has the capability to use an H2S filter and is required as
standard if the compensated CO cell is fitted and configured at the time the instrument
is manufactured. H2S gas can have a cross-gas effect on the CO reading. By using a
filter, the H2S is removed from the gas sample, therefore providing a more accurate CO
reading.
The filter only needs to be used when you are trying to get rid of any possible cross gas
effects H2S might have on other gases. Do not use the filter on other monitoring points.
For additional information related to H2S filters please refer to
http://www.landtecna.com.
3.2.4 GPS (optional)
An optional GPS feature is available for the GEM5000 gas analyzer. It enables the gas
technician to automatically locate sample locations using GPS satellite signal from
predefined sample location IDs uploaded from LANDTEC System Gas Analyzer Manager
or set on the analyzer when out in the field prior to taking a reading. The GPS reading
data is stored with each reading providing an audit trail, as it confirms where the
reading was taken.
3.2.5 Bluetooth dongle (optional)
An optional Bluetooth feature enables the operator to set and utilize Bluetooth
technology. This may be useful when downloading gas readings from the analyzer to
the PC instead of connecting the analyzer to a PC via a USB cable. Bluetooth comes
standard on many portable computers. For desktop / stationary computers, Bluetooth
is activated by plugging the dongle into a pc USB port. The analyzer’s Bluetooth
discovery is activated by switching on the Bluetooth discovery option feature in the
settings menu on the analyzer.
3.3 Instrument accessory products
Optional accessory and replacement parts must ONLY be purchased for the GEM5000
gas analyzer directly from LANDTEC or an authorized distributor. Please contact

5.7.15 Downloading Readings
After successfully creating projects, IDs, and setting appropriate instrument settings, the instrument is
ready for field use. When used in the field, readings are collected and stored within the instrument’s
memory. The readings consist of the measured, input, and calculated parameters such as CH 4, CO2, O2,
Gas Temperature, Flow Rate, etc. These readings must be downloaded from the instrument to be
reviewed on the computer and stored for review at a later time. This section of the Operation Manual
reviews the process of downloading and storing readings from the instrument.
To view your readings from the instrument, select the Readings tab of the LANDTEC System Gas
Analyzer Manager software. Then click on the Get Readings button
When the instrument is initially detected by the LSGAM software, the Get Readings button will activate if
there are readings in the instrument to be downloaded.

6.9 Physical Storage
The analyzer should not be exposed to extreme temperature. For example, do not keep
the analyzer in a hot truck. When not in use analyzers should be kept in a clean and dry
environment, such as an office and protect the analyzer with either the soft carry case or
store in the hard carry case provided with the instrument.
The instrument should be discharged and fully charged at least once every four weeks,
regardless of indicated charge state. Allowing the instrument to sit for longer than
four weeks without charging it is likely to cause discharge of the batteries to a
point where the batteries will NO LONGER BE ABLE TO TAKE A CHARGE. Such a
discharge will require a factory service and battery replacement.

6.10 Battery/charging
The battery used in the 5000 series of gas analyzers is nickel metal hydride and
manufactured as a pack from six individual cells. This type of battery is not so
susceptible to the top-up charging ‘memory effects’ as nickel cadmium batteries.
However as a best practice it is suggested to cycle the batteries charge as much as
possible and then fully charge the batteries. Although small top-up charges can be used
to complete a day’s readings, if necessary, they are NOT suggested.
 Note:
To charge, the analyzer must be switched OFF before
attaching the charger. Switching the analyzer on or off
during charging will cancel the current charge. The
analyzer should be left OFF during the charging cycle.

Warning
5K-MNL-GEM5000
Inhaling hydrogen-sulfide gas (H2S) or other harmful gases can cause
death. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure that he/she is
adequately trained in the safety aspects of using H2S and other harmful
gases. In particular, where hazardous gases are being used the gas
exhausted from the analyzer must be piped to an area where it is safe
to discharge the gas. Hazardous gas can also be expelled from the
instrument when purging with clean air.
Good practice

Travel to site with the gas analyzer in its protective hard case, preferably in the
vehicle's interior - not in the back of a truck, where it may be subjected to extremes
of temperature and possible shock damage. Do not place the gas analyzer against
anything hot (e.g. gas extraction pipe, car body or in an unattended car during the
summer) as this will cause a temperature increase in the gas analyzer and may
cause erroneous readings.

As with most instrumentation it is recommended to, protect the gas analyzer from
strong direct sunlight and heavy rain.

Always use the water trap! If the water trap becomes flooded, change the filter and
ensure all tubes are clear of moisture before re-use.
 Note:
If the exhaust of a 5000 series gas analyzer is connected to a
pressurized system then this results in a flow of gas out of the inlet
flow port.
8.2 Update site questions
Prior to taking the readings at a particular site, the site questions should be updated. This
is accessed via the ‘Special Action’ menu. The answers to these questions are then
stored and appended to each reading stored thereafter, until the site data is updated for
another site. If using LANDTEC System Gas Analyzer Manager (LSGAM) software this
data will be uploaded to LSGAM along with the reading data.

The operator may toggle between GEM (a gas extraction monitor) and GA (a landfill gas
analyzer) mode of operation if required. From the ‘Special Action’ menu, select the
middle soft-key to toggle between GEM and GA Mode.

Note:
The GEM5000 differs from the GEM2000 series of analyzers in that all IDs
and Memory within the instrument are contained in a single area. They are
not specific to GEM or to GA mode. GEM and GA mode should be
considered as “modes of workflow” rather than instrument modes.
Readings can be taken in either workflow mode GEM or GA.
LSGAM now supports a new flow device called “NO FLOW” for
probes. If “NO FLOW” is selected during ID Setup, the instrument
will default to the GA workflow after a Device ID containing
“NO FLOW” is selected. Subsequent selection of an ID without
“NO FLOW” for the flow device will cause the instrument to return
to the GEM workflow.
Figure 29—Analyzer in GA Mode—Main Gas Reading Screen
8.5 Simple GAS (special action)
A simple gas reading is similar to that of a GA mode reading except that it does not record
temperature nor does it record relative pressure. This is useful if strictly a gas composition is desired.
There are two ways to start a simple gas reading. The First is to press ‘special action’ followed by simple
gas (1) before pressing ‘start’ to begin a reading. The other is to simply press the pump key before
pressing the ‘start’ button on the reading screen. Once the Simple Gas reading is activated the Start
button will become a store button.

The reading is literally as simple as “pumping and storing”. If an ID has questions, system pressure or
other elements setup they will be ignored for the simple reading. GPS coordinates are stored if available
along with a simple gas reading.
Note: A simple gas reading can be used as a mechanism to record a downloadable record of a gas
check. Consider establishing one or more ID’s that are used to check gas mixtures. Take a simple gas
reading against these ID’s and store the reading.
8.6 The GEM5000 as a Gas Extraction Monitor (GEM) gas flow

measure setting.
Figure 30—Example of a Pitot Tube
Fitting a pitot tube to the analyzer:
1)
It is important to seat the pitot tube into the monitoring point with the tip facing
into the gas flow. The pitot tube should also be housed half way down the
monitoring pipe.
2)
Make sure that the sample tubing attached to the pitot tube fits correctly.
3)
Attach the sample tube from the top connection of the pitot tube to the ‘blue port’
(the differential port) on the analyzer making sure that the gas port connector
secure into place.
4)
Attach the sample tube from the side of the pitot tube to the ‘white port’ (inlet
port/static pressure port) on the analyzer making sure that the gas port connector
secures into place.
5)
House the pitot gland correctly onto the monitoring point.
6)
When taking a gas reading and flow measurement follow the instruction as
displayed on the front of the instrument.
 Note:
Please refer to the following section for a diagram showing how to fit
the tubing to the pitot tube.
8.8 How to use an H2S filter (optional)
8.8.1 Cross gas effects on chemical cells
Measurements of CO are important in landfill management. The GEM5000 analyzer
incorporates an improved CO measurement. Measurements of CO can be affected by
 LANDTEC
Page 83
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
two other gases that can be found in landfill gas – hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide.
To reduce the effect of hydrogen, the GEM5000 analyzer uses a technique that is
hydrogen compensated. Hydrogen compensation is achievable up to a level of around
2000ppm. Above this level the CO reading will not be compensated for.
In order to assist the operator the GEM5000 instrument also indicates the level of
hydrogen present as low, medium or high. If a high hydrogen reading is present then
the CO reading may be affected.
The effect of hydrogen sulfide is eliminated by the use of a H2S filter.
CO measurement
The CO measurement is sensitive to hydrogen sulfide. The presence of hydrogen sulfide
can cause the CO reading to elevate (not to be the true value due to the interfering
gas). If the presence of hydrogen sulfide is suspected to be causing false CO readings,
then it is recommended that the external hydrogen sulfide filter is used while obtaining
the CO measurement.
The H2S filter only needs to be used when you are trying to remove any possible cross
gas effects H2S might have on other gas channels. Do not use the filter on all devices.
When using the H2S filter you will need to increase the gas sample and clean air purge
run-time, as using an H2S filter decreases the response time of the analyzer.
 Note:
There is an internal H2S filter incorporated in the chemical cell that removes
the H2S; however this has a limited life span.
The electrochemical cells used to measure H2S and CO do suffer from cross-gas effects.
Such effects are not accurately specified. However, the following table may be useful as
a guide; it represents how many ppm would be read by a cell if 100 ppm of the
interfering gas were applied, with no other cross-contaminates being present in the
sample.

8.8.2 Cross-gas effects on methane, carbon dioxide and oxygen
Methane is measured using dual beam infrared absorption. Analyzers are calibrated

V1.13
GEM5000 gas analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
using certified methane mixtures and will give correct readings, provided there are no
other hydrocarbon gases present within the sample (e.g. ethane, propane, butane,
etc…). If there are other hydrocarbons present, the methane reading will typically be
higher than the actual methane concentration being monitored.
The extent to which the methane reading is affected depends upon the concentration of
the methane in the sample and the concentration of the other hydrocarbons. The effect
is totally non-linear and difficult to predict.
 Note:
The effect can be reduced by using an H2S filter as it can reduce higher
order hydrocarbons. When using the H2S filter you will need to increase
the gas sample and clean air purge run-times, as using an H2S filter
increases the response time of the analyzer.
Carbon dioxide is measured by infrared absorption at a wavelength specific to carbon
dioxide. Therefore, the carbon dioxide reading will not be affected by any other gases
usually found on landfill sites.
The oxygen sensor is a galvanic cell type and suffers virtually no influence from CO 2,
CO, H2S, NO2, SO2 or H2, unlike many other types of oxygen cell.
The infrared sensors will not be ‘poisoned’ by other hydrocarbons and will revert to
normal operation as soon as the gas sample has been ‘purged’.

Calibration
9.1 Calibration introduction
The GEM5000 gas analyzer is carefully calibrated at time of manufacturer and when
returned for service. However, it is desirable to be able to carry out a calibration process
between services.
This section outlines the correct procedures to enable the field technician to field calibrate
the gas analyzer.
 Note:
This does not replace the factory service and calibration. If this calibration is
completed incorrectly it may decrease the accuracy of the gas analyzer.
CH4, CO2 and O2 can be measured by all GEM5000 gas analyzer models as a standard;
these channels can be user calibrated. Optionally, the analyzers can have other gas
channel specified at purchase; these channels can be calibrated as well. This section will
describe in detail how to calibrate the three standard gas channels plus the CO channel.
The GEM5000 instrument can have a H2 compensated CO channel. This option requires
that H2 is used in the calibration process and is also set out within this section. Refer to
section 4.2 GEM5000 Part Number Legend to determine if you have an H2 compensated
CO channel. While H2 is used for calibration of the compensated CO cell, it is not a gas
that is measured by the instrument as a part of a reading. As such it only appears on the
gas check and View Data screens but not the reading screen.
For the other gas channel options contact LANDTEC for advice.
Two important terms that are used within this section are ‘Zero’ and ‘Span’.
Zero:
The point at which the gas analyzer is calibrated when there is none (Zero
percent or ppm) of the target gases present.
Span:
The point at which the gas analyzer is calibrated when a known quantity of the
target gas is present.
9.2 Frequency of calibration—best practice.
The GEM5000 gas analyzers can be checked against a known concentration of gas, to
give confidence that the analyzer is operating as expected at the time and conditions in
which it is being used.
A field calibration should be performed if the ambient
temperature changes by more than 20° Fahrenheit over the course of a monitoring since
the last field calibration.
It is recommended that the instrument is regularly serviced and calibrated by LANDTEC.
Please refer to the instrument’s calibration certificate for the last date of calibration.
When defining the frequency of user calibration, the following are factors to be
considered:





The frequency of use of the analyzer. (daily?/monthly?)
The level of confidence and accuracy required for readings to be taken.
Historical user calibration data.
Site specific requirements or conditions.
Historical understanding of expected readings on site.
 LANDTEC
Page 93
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
Zeroing of the gas analyzer should be undertaken at the start of each day’s monitoring.
Use historical data to drive your frequency of calibration.
If there is no historical data a good starting point for a daily monitoring round is
performing a calibration daily at the beginning of a monitoring event.
The results of the calibrations will need to be recorded to monitor over time whether the
frequency of calibration needs to be increased or decreased relative to the confidence
required.
The confidence required is most often driven by the site specific, user, and/or regulatory
requirements.
When undertaking the monitoring with an understanding of the history of the gas levels
of that site, a calibration check could be triggered if the readings measured are different
to what is expected.
 Note:
For assistance please contact Technical Support at +1 (909) 783-3636
9.3 Calibration gases
User calibration of a gas analyzer will greatly improve the data accuracy in the range of
the calibration gases used. This may cause less accurate readings of concentrations
outside this calibrated range. Users should select the correct calibration gas for the
expected gas levels on their particular application.



To improve calibration at lower levels the use of CG-00-00-04 and CG-15-15-00 is
recommended. To improve calibration at higher levels use of CG-50-35-00 is
recommended.
For standard CO only 100ppm CO gas is needed.
For CO (H2 compensated) both CO 100ppm and H2 1000ppm gases are needed.
The following table indicates a partial listing of gases sold by LANDTEC for calibration:

Warning
5K-MNL-GEM5000
Calibration gases can be dangerous.
For each gas used the appropriate material safety data sheet
must be read and understood before proceeding.
9.4 Calibration set-up
Warning
Do NOT attach the gas supply to the gas analyzer before
putting the analyzer into the ‘Gas Check’ screen. Select
‘Check Spans’ from the ‘Operation Settings’ menu.
The regulator supplied with the calibration kit has been configured to deliver a fixed flow.
As the regulator’s flow is factory set, it only requires a few turns to open, no adjustment
is necessary.
Warning
Exhaust port
When the gas analyzer is being calibrated, there are two
possible exits for the gas, via the usual manner out of the
exhaust (yellow) port of the analyzer or through the optional
pressure relief valve. In cases of over-pressurization the port
on the pressure relief valve will open.
It is recommended that tubing is attached to the instrument
during a calibration or gas check. The exhaust tubing must
emerge in a well-ventilated area. Ensure there are no leaks
in the tubing and connections.
The calibration of the gas analyzer should be carried out in a
safe area with all necessary precautions taken when using
potentially dangerous, explosive or toxic gases.
9.5 Calibration equipment
The following diagram displays the regulator, tubing and carrying case used for user
calibration:
 LANDTEC

Figure 34—LANDTEC Calibration Gas Kit

Certified calibration gas cylinders are supplied with the LANDTEC calibration kit. The
volume of gas is typically 34 liters. Certain gas mixtures may have different
volumes. Please refer to the LANDTEC website www.landtena.com for further
information.

The regulator supplied with the calibration kit is pre-set for flow and pressure rates
that are factory set. If using other gas sources and regulators please match the flow
and pressure of the LANDTEC regulators. An optional pressure relief valve is
suggested if using a NON-LANDTEC regulator just as a safety precaution. Over
pressurization of the analyzer can cause damage to the analyzer and cause it to
malfunction.
9.6 Gas Check (Field Calibration)
The GEM5000 instrument series has a “Gas Check” to both perform a test
or check the gases and then allow calibration to a known standard or “gas
mix”. The calibration will calibrate to a zero target or other target value if
defined. If a gas is missing or not defined in the mix, then the Gas Check
Calibration will not calibrate to it.
A default set of “gas mixes” covering the majority of scenarios for basic
calibration of CH4, CO2, & O2 have been preloaded into the instrument for your
convenience. To meet your particular needs, you are able to adjust the existing mixes to or
add additional gas mixes. The following table shows the mixes that are pre-loaded into your
instrument.

Gases Defined with 0.0 will be spanned
to zero when the gas mix is used
Gas Defined with “Nothing specified”
It is important to note that a 0.0 is different than Nothing defined. In the above example
for Fresh Air, only CO2 is not defined or has “Nothing specified”. What this means is that
when the mix named Fresh Air is applied to the instrument you will Zero the CH4, O2, CO,
H2S & H2 Channels. You will Span Oxygen to 20.9 percent. Carbon Dioxide CO 2 will not be
touched when Fresh Air is applied. This distinction is important because as gas mixes are
defined you may choose to omit defining a constituent as 0.0 if you want to span only and
not Zero a particular gas. The following example will describe this in a step-by-step single
bottle gas check/calibration sequence.
Single Bottle Calibration
The following will walk through a typical calibration using Air and a single bottle of 50%
Methane / 35% Carbon Dioxide / Balance Nitrogen.
The three simple steps to performing this calibration are:
 Apply Fresh air, Zero channels
 Apply Span to CH4, CO2, Zero O2
 Apply Span for O2
To begin, press the Menu Key
on the instrument. From the Operations Settings Menu,
press 2 for Gas Check. From the Gas Check Screen, press 1 to perform the Gas Check. The
Select Gas Mix screen will appear.
These gases may
vary depending upon

occur.
Once the numbers settle down a bit, choose “Check” to begin the actual check process.
You will see the countdown timer while the gas is being checked. Once complete a screen
will appear indicating the status of the various gas channels.
At this point, you are prompted to either Retry the check, Calibrate the instrument or
Record the check event.

Press Calibrate to:
 Span the Methane to a Target value of Zero
 Span the Oxygen to 20.9
 Span CO2, H2S, and H2 Channels to a Target of Zero.
This concludes the first step of the calibration. Press Exit to return to the Gas Mix screen.
Now you will span CH4, CO2 and span O2 to zero.

Initially you may see many red X in the gas screen because the current value varies widely
from the expected target. At this point, connect the 50%CH 4 / 35%CO2 bottle to the white
port on the top of the analyzer and begin the flow of gas. Once gas flows, the values will
probably change.
Now the gases for CH4, CO2, & O2 are much closer and are within a range that is able to be
calibrated.


Step 2 Spanned CH4 to 50% & CO2 to 35%. Spanned O2 to Zero.

Step 3 will Span will span O2 to a non-zero span-target.
Step 3) Spanning Oxygen
To span the Oxygen channel to ambient air choose the gas mix “Oxygen High”.
The “Oxygen High” gas mix is defined for just Oxygen and no other gases are defined. This
allows for oxygen to be spanned without spanning CH4, CO, H2S, or H2 to Zero. Press
Check to begin checking the O2. As the gas is displaced from the previous Span in the
instrument the current value will rise.

10 Problem solving
This section outlines various warning and error messages which the operator may receive
during general operation of the instrument.
For further assistance please contact Technical Support at +1 (909) 783-3636 or email
[email protected]
11 Warning and error display
When switched on the instrument will perform a pre-determined self-test sequence taking
approximately 15 seconds. During this time many of the instrument’s working
parameters and settings are checked.
If any operational parameters are out of specification or the pre-programmed
recommended calibration/service date has passed, errors or warnings may be displayed.
Use the ‘Scroll up’ and ‘Scroll down’ keys to move through the list if required.
Only three warnings/errors can be displayed at any time.
To ascertain if more errors have occurred use ‘Key 8’ – Scroll down’ and ‘Key 2’ - Scroll
up’ through the list.
Warnings displayed:
All warnings displayed will be prefixed by the word WARNING followed by a relevant
description.
There are two types of warning that may be displayed:
1.
General warnings that may not affect the instrument’s function and those where the
self-test has detected a function that is outside the usual programmed operating
criteria, e.g. battery charge low, memory nearly full.
2.
Operational parameters that could affect the performance of the analyzer: Cell out
of calibration, CH4 out of calibration, CO2 out of calibration.
The most likely reason for the errors is either an incorrect user calibration or sensor
failure. If an incorrect user calibration has caused the warning it should be correctable by

Service by any untrained personnel will negate service technicians
serviced by unqualified engineers the CSA, ATEX, and other
certifications may be invalidated and the instrument may be
unsafe for use in a potentially explosive atmosphere.
User serviceable parts:
There are no user serviceable parts inside the instrument.
The following parts can be user serviced:
In-line water filter
This should be regularly inspected for obstructions, moisture
or damage and changed if needed. The instrument should
never be operated without the in-line water filter as this
may result in water entering the instrument.
Sample tubing
Always ensure that sample tubes are not contaminated or
damaged.
Gas port connectors
Periodically check that the O-rings on the gas port
connectors of the hoses are not damaged. A damaged Oring can let air into the sample gas and result in incorrect

15 Appendix—Configuring Communication Connections
15.1 Legacy Serial Communications Driver Installation
The instrument supports two modes of communication “Legacy” and “GA5K”. At present the instrument
communications software will only communicate in the “Legacy” communications mode.
IMPORTANT: Irrespective of operating system, the instrument will need to be set to Legacy
communications mode. The drivers will need to be installed using a Windows login account with
administrative privileges. If more than one instrument is connected to the computer, it will automatically
install the software for the second instrument because an administrator has already installed it initially.
Each instrument on a given computer will have a unique COMxx port assigned to the instrument. COMxx
port assignments are unique to the computer and not to the instrument. This means the one instrument
may be COM17 on a desktop computer and COM6 on a laptop computer.

Instrucciones de limpieza
NO utilice agentes limpiadores para limpiar el analizador o el cargador de la batería, ya
que podrían tener efectos adversos en el uso seguro de los dispositivos.
Consejos de utilidad para efectuar lecturas
Advertencia
La inhalación de sulfuro de hidrógeno (H2S) o de otros gases
nocivos puede ser mortal. El usuario es responsable de
garantizar que está debidamente formado en aspectos de
seguridad en cuanto al uso de H2S y de otros gases nocivos
especialmente en los lugares en los que se usan gases
peligrosos, en los cuales el gas emitido por el analizador debe
conducirse por un tubo hasta una zona en la que pueda
liberarse con seguridad. El instrumento también puede emitir
gases peligrosos si se purga con aire limpio.
Consejos de utilidad

En los desplazamientos, el analizador de gas debe llevarse en el interior del vehículo
(nunca en el maletero), con objeto de evitar daños por temperaturas extremas o
posibles impactos. No coloque el analizador de gas sobre superficies calientes (p.
ej., tuberías de extracción de gas, carrocerías o vehículos aparcados a altas
temperaturas); el aumento de la temperatura del analizador de gas afectaría a la
precisión de las lecturas.

Cuando se mueva por una zona, proteja el analizador de gas de la luz solar directa
y la lluvia intensa.
Utilice siempre el colector de agua. Si rebosa, cambie el filtro y asegúrese de que ningún
tubo esté húmedo antes de volver a usarlo.
 Nota:
Si el escape de un analizador de gas de la serie GA5000 se conecta a un
sistema presurizado, el gas se saldrá del orificio de entrada.
Calibrado
Advertencia
Los gases de calibrado pueden ser peligrosos.
Lea atentamente las especificaciones de seguridad de cada
gas utilizado antes de proceder al calibrado.
El regulador suministrado con el juego de calibrado está configurado para proporcionar
un caudal fijo.
Dado que el caudal del regulador se ajusta en fábrica, solo hay que girarlo unas vueltas
 LANDTEC
Page 143
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
para abrirlo; no es necesario ajustarlo.
Orificios de escape
Advertencia
Durante el calibrado del analizador de gas, existen dos
salidas posibles para el gas: por la vía habitual, es decir, el
orificio de escape del analizador (amarillo) o, en caso de
sobrepresión, el orificio de 1,58 mm de la válvula roja de alivio
de la presión situado en el regulador.
Se recomienda conectar tubos de escape en ambos orificios.
Los tubos de escape deben llegar a un área con ventilación
suficiente. Asegúrese de que no haya fugas en los tubos ni
las conexiones.
El calibrado del analizador de gas debe realizarse en un área
segura con todas las precauciones necesarias en el uso de
gases potencialmente peligrosos, explosivos o tóxicos.
 Nota:
También es posible que salga gas del orificio de caudal interno (azul) del
analizador de gas (solo se aplica al GA5000).
Mantenimiento
Debe realizarse regularmente el mantenimiento de la serie 5000 de analizadores de gas
con el fin de garantizar el funcionamiento correcto y preciso. Geotech (UK) Limited
recomienda que se lleve a cabo el mantenimiento y el recalibrado cada 6 meses.
La serie 5000 de analizadores de gas cuenta con la certificación ATEX para su uso en
lugares con riesgo de explosión. Por lo tanto, únicamente los ingenieros cualificados
pueden realizar el mantenimiento. En caso contrario, la garantía quedará anulada y
podría invalidar la certificación ATEX.

ils ne présentent aucun danger. Des gaz dangereux peuvent
aussi être expulsés de l'instrument lors d'une purge à l'air
propre.
Bonnes pratiques

Lors d'un déplacement vers un site d'utilisation, transporter l'instrument dans
l'habitacle du véhicule, et non pas dans le coffre où il pourrait être soumis à des
températures extrêmes, voire à des chocs risquant de l'endommager. Ne pas
placer l'analyseur de gaz contre des surfaces chaudes (conduite d'extraction de gaz,
carrosserie d'une voiture ou voiture laissée sans surveillance en été, par exemple)
car les effets de la chaleur sur l'analyseur risquent d'entraîner des valeurs
mesurées incorrectes.

Lors du déplacement sur site, protéger l'analyseur de gaz de la lumière solaire
directe et des fortes intempéries.
Toujours utiliser le piège à eau ! Si le piège à eau déborde, changer le filtre et vérifier
que tous les tuyaux ne présentent aucune trace d'humidité avant toute utilisation.
 Remarque :
 LANDTEC
si l'évacuation d'un analyseur de gaz de la série GA5000 est
connectée à un système sous pression, un flux de gaz s'échappera du
port de débit d'entrée.

Étalonnage
Les gaz d'étalonnage peuvent être dangereux.
Avertissement
Pour chaque gaz utilisé, il convient de lire et de
comprendre la fiche de données de sécurité
correspondante avant de poursuivre.
Le régulateur fourni avec le kit d'étalonnage a été configuré pour assurer un débit fixe.
Le débit du régulateur étant réglé en usine, il ne faut que quelques tours pour l'ouvrir et
aucun réglage n'est nécessaire.
Orifice d'évacuation
Avertissement
Lors de l'étalonnage de l'analyseur de gaz, le gaz peut être
évacué par deux orifices : par l'orifice d'évacuation normal
(jaune) de l'analyseur ou, dans les cas de surpression, par
l'orifice de 1/16 de pouce de la soupape de surpression
rouge située sur le régulateur.
Il est recommandé de raccorder des tuyaux d'évacuation à
ces deux orifices.
Le tuyau d'évacuation doit laisser les gaz s'échapper dans
un endroit bien ventilé. Vérifier que les tuyaux et les
raccords ne présentent aucune fuite.
L'étalonnage de l'analyseur de gaz doit s'effectuer dans un
endroit sûr, en observant toutes les précautions
nécessaires
en
présence
de
gaz
potentiellement
dangereux, explosifs ou toxiques.
 Remarque :
le gaz peut être aussi expulsé au niveau du port de débit interne (bleu)
de l'analyseur de gaz (applicable uniquement au modèle GA5000).
Entretien
Pour un fonctionnement correct et précis, l'analyseur de gaz de la série 5000 doit faire
l'objet d'un entretien régulier. Geotech (UK) Limited recommande un entretien et un
réétalonnage tous les 6 mois.
Les analyseurs de gaz de la série 5000 sont certifiés ATEX pour l'utilisation en
environnements potentiellement explosifs. En conséquence, leur entretien doit être
effectué uniquement par des techniciens qualifiés. Le non-respect de cette exigence
entraînera l'annulation de la garantie, voire de la certification ATEX.

durchgeführt werden können. Es umfasst eine Reihe von Überwachungs-, Probenahme-
 LANDTEC
Page 161
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
und Prüfaufgaben.
Das Instrument GEM5000 ist nur MCERTS-zertifiziert, falls:

Das MCERTS-Logo nach dem erstmaligen Einschalten auf dem Bildschirm erscheint.
 Hinweis:
MCERTS - Bei diesem Gerät wurden keine Störempfindlichkeitsprüfungen

Die britische Umweltagentur hat MCERTS (Monitoring Certification Scheme) initiiert, um
hochwertige Umweltmessungen bereitzustellen. Das MCERTS
Produktzertifizierungsprogramm ermöglicht die Zertifizierung von Produkten gemäß den
Leistungsstandards der Umweltagentur basierend auf den entsprechenden CEN-, ISOund nationalen Normen.
MCERTS-zertifizierte Geräte wurden durch eine unabhängige Stelle geprüft, um zu
gewährleisten, dass bestimmte Leistungsanforderungen erfüllt werden. Darüber hinaus
wird der Hersteller eines MCERTS-Produkts regelmäßig geprüft, um zu gewährleisten,
dass die Leistungsanforderungen der Zertifizierung durchgehend erfüllt werden.
Die Gasanalysatoren der 5000er Serie wurden gemäß Version 3.1 der
„Leistungsanforderungen für tragbare Emissionsüberwachungssysteme“ zertifiziert.
Akku und Aufladen
Bei dem Akku, der in den Gasanalysatoren der 5000er Serie verwendet wird, handelt es
sich um einen Nickel-Metallhydrid-Akku, der als Akkupack aus sechs einzelnen Zellen
hergestellt wird. Dieser Akkutyp ist weniger stark für den Memoryeffekt anfällig als
Nickel-Kadmium-Akkus. Trotzdem wird davon abgeraten, das Gerät mit kleinen Ladungen
nachzuladen.
Das Ladegerät sollte nur getrennt werden, wenn komplette Ladung angezeigt wird.
Warnhinweise
Das Akkuladegerät ist NICHT in der ATEX-Zertifizierung
enthalten. Der Akku darf nur in einem sicheren Bereich
aufgeladen werden.

Reinigungsanweisungen
Ve vrwenden Sie KEINE Reinigungsmittel zum Reinigen des Analysegeräts oder
Akkuladegeräts, da sie die sichere Verwendung dieser Geräte beeinträchtigen können.
Good Practice beim Ablesen
Warnhinweise
Das Einatmen von Schwefelwasserstoffgas (H2S) oder anderer
schädlicher Gase kann tödlich sein.
Es liegt in der
Verantwortung des Benutzers sicherzustellen, dass er/sie
angemessen über die Sicherheitsaspekte beim Einsatz von H2S
und anderer schädlicher Gase geschult ist. Vor allem beim
Einsatz gefährlicher Gase muss das vom Analysator
ausströmende Gas in einen Bereich geleitet werden, in dem das
Gas sicher abgeführt werden kann. Gefährliches Gas kann
ebenso vom Gerät ausgestossen werden, wenn es mit sauberer
Luft ausgeblasen wird.
Good Practice

Transportieren Sie den Gasanalysator im Inneren des Fahrzeugs an den Einsatzort nicht auf der Ladefläche, wo er Temperaturschwankungen und möglichen Stößen
ausgeliefert ist. Platzieren Sie den Gasanalysator nicht direkt an oder auf etwas
Heißem (z. B. Gasleitung, Karosserie oder in einem unbeaufsichtigten Auto während
des Sommers), da dies einen Temperaturanstieg im Gasanalysator verursacht und
zu fehlerhaften Messwerten führen kann.

Schützen Sie den Gasanalysator am Einsatzort vor starkem, direktem Sonnenlicht
und starkem Regen.
Verwenden Sie stets den Wasserabscheider! Wenn der Wasserabscheider überschwemmt
wird, tauschen Sie den Filter aus, und stellen Sie sicher, dass alle Schläuche frei von
Feuchtigkeit sind, bevor Sie sie erneut verwenden.
 Hinweis:
Wenn der Auslass eines Gasanalysators der Serie GA5000 an ein
druckbeaufschlagtes System angeschlossen ist, dann führt dies zu einem
Gasstrom aus dem Einlassstromanschluss.
Kalibrieren
Warnhinweise
Eichgase können gefährlich sein.
Vor dem Verfahren müssen die
Materialsicherheitsdatenblätter aller verwendeten Gase
 LANDTEC
Page 163
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
gelesen und verstanden werden.
Der mit dem Kalibrierset gelieferte Regulator wurde so konfiguriert, dass er einen
unveränderlichen Durchfluss liefert.
Da der Durchfluss des Regulators werkseitig eingestellt ist, lässt der Regulator sich mit
nur wenigen Drehungen öffnen; eine Einstellung ist nicht erforderlich.
Austrittsöffnung
Warnhinweise
Wenn der Gasanalysator kalibriert wird, gibt es zwei
mögliche Ausgänge für das Gas: auf die übliche Art über
die Austrittsöffnung (gelb) des Analysators oder bei
Überdruck über die 1/16”Öffnung des roten
Druckentlastungsventils, das sich am Regler befindet.
Für beide Öffnungen wird das Anbringen von
Auslassrohrleitungen empfohlen.
Die Auslassrohrleitungen müssen in einen gut belüfteten
Bereich führen. Stellen Sie sicher, dass es in den
Rohrleitungen und an den Verbindungen keine
Undichtigkeiten gibt.
Das Kalibrieren des Gasanalysators muss in einem
sicheren Bereich unter Anwendung aller notwendigen
Sicherheitsvorkehrungen durchgeführt werden, wenn
möglicherweise gefährliche, explosive oder toxische Gase
eingesetzt werden.
 Hinweis:
Es besteht außerdem die Möglichkeit, dass Gas aus dem internen
Strömungsanschluss (blau) des Gasanalysators ausgestoßen wird (gilt
nur für GA5000).
Wartung
Die Gasanalysatoren der 5000er Serie müssen regelmäßig gewartet werden, um den
korrekten und genauen Betrieb zu gewährleisten. Geotech (UK) Limited empfiehlt ein
Wartungs- und Neukalibrierungsintervall von 6 Monaten.
Die Gasanalysatoren der 5000er Serie sind für den Einsatz in explosionsgefährdeten
Bereichen ATEX-zertifiziert. Daher dürfen sie nur von qualifizierten Technikern gewartet
werden. Im Falle der Nichtbefolgung erlischt die Garantie, und die ATEX-Zertifizierung
kann ihre Gültigkeit verlieren.
Warnhinweise
Falls derGasanalysator von unqualifizierten Technikern
gewartet wird, kann die ATEX-Zertifizierung ihre
Gültigkeit verlieren, und das Gerät ist möglicherweise
für den Einsatz in einer explosionsgefährdeten
Atmosphäre nicht mehr sicher.
Teile, die durch den Benutzer gewartet werden können:
Page 164
 Copyright LANDTEC North America, Inc.
V1.13
GEM5000 gas analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
Im Gerät gibt es keine Teile, die durch den Benutzer gewartet werden können.
Die folgenden Teile können durch den Benutzer gewartet werden:
Wasserleitungsfilter
Er muss regelmäßig auf Verstopfungen, Feuchtigkeit
bzw. Beschädigungen untersucht und, falls erforderlich,
ausgetauscht werden. Das Gerät darf nie ohne den
Wasserleitungsfilter betrieben werden, da dies dazu
führen könnte, dass Wasser in das Gerät eindringt.
Probenrohrleitungen
Stellen Sie stets sicher, dass die Probenrohrleitungen
weder verunreinigt noch beschädigt sind.
Gasausgangsanschlüsse
Prüfen Sie periodisch, ob die O-Ringe an den
Gasausgangsanschlüssen beschädigt sind. Durch einen
beschädigten O-Ring kann Luft in das Messgas
eindringen und zu falschen Messwerten führen. Falls der
O-Ring beschädigt ist, muss der gesamte
Gasausgangsanschluss ausgetauscht werden.
H2S Filtermaterial
Sobald die Farbe des Filtermaterials leicht grau wird,
muss der Filter ausgetauscht werden.

MCERTS
MCERTS sta per Monitoring Certification Scheme, il programma di certificazione della
Environment Agency, l’enteistituzione britannicoa per la protezione ambientale. Il
programma offre uno schema in base al quale effettuare le misurazioni ambientali
rispettando i requisiti qualitativi dell’Environment Agency e comprende varie attività di
monitoraggio, campionatura e ispezione.
 LANDTEC
Page 171
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
Lo strumento GEM5000 ha la certificazione MCERTS solo se:

Dopo l’accensione iniziale, sullo schermo compare il logo MCERTS.
 Nota:
MCERTS - Su questo strumento non si sono effettuati test di sensibilità
incrociata con l’utilizzo di idrogeno solforato. Pertanto gli utenti devono
accertare la presenza di H2S, che potrebbe avere un effetto interferenziale.
MCERTS promuove fiducia nel monitoraggio dei dati e offre al settore una struttura
sperimentata per scegliere sistemi e servizi di monitoraggio che soddisfino i requisiti
dell’Environment Agency.
L’Environment Agency ha istituito il Monitoring Certification Scheme (MCERTS) per
conseguire misurazioni ambientali qualitativamente valide. Il programma MCERTS offre la
certificazione dei prodotti secondo gli standard qualitativi dell'Environment Agency, in
base alle norme CEN, ISO e nazionali.
Gli strumenti con certificazione MCERTS sono stati testati da un organismo indipendente
per verificare che soddisfino determinate caratteristiche di prestazione. Inoltre le aziende
dei prodotti MCERTS vengono regolarmente controllate per accertare che le
caratteristiche di prestazione da attestare nel certificato siano sempre conseguite.
Gli analizzatori di gas della serie 5000 sono stati certificati secondo la versione 3.1 delle
‘Caratteristiche di prestazione dei sistemi portatili di monitoraggio delle emissioni’.
Batteria e ricarica
La batteria utilizzata negli analizzatori di gas della serie 5000 è al nichel-idruro metallico
e viene prodotta come pacco con sei celle individuali. Anche se questo tipo di batteria
non è soggetta all’‘effetto memoria’ della ricarica come quelle al nichel cadmio, non è
consigliabileraccomandabile effettuare piccole ricariche parziali.
Il caricabatteria va scollegato solo quando indica la carica completa.
Avvertenza
Il caricabatteria NON è coperto dalla certificazione Ex. La
batteria va caricata solo in un'area sicura.
Il caricabatteria è intelligente e indica lo stato di carica in corso o avvenuta.
Lo strumento va caricato utilizzando ESCLUSIVAMENTE il caricabatteria fornito in
dotazione, che è inteso solo per l’uso in un locale interno. Effettuare la ricarica in un
locale ventilato.

necessario. Per ulteriori informazioni rivolgersi alla casa produttrice.
Istruzioni per la pulizia
NON utilizzare detergenti per pulire l’analizzatore o il caricabatteria, perché potrebbero
avere un effetto negativo sulla sicurezza del loro uso.
Prassi ottimali per rilevare le letture
Avvertenza
L’inalazione del gas di solfuro d’idrogeno (H2S) o di altri gas nocivi
può causare la morte. Spetta all’utente accertarsi di essere
sufficientemente addestrato negli aspetti della sicurezza relativi
all’uso di H2S e altri gas nocivi. In particolare nel caso di gas
pericolosi, quelli scaricati dall’analizzatore devono essere convogliati
in un’area in cui lo scaricotale operazione possa essere effettuatao in
condizioni di sicurezza. È possibile che lo strumento scarichi gas
pericolosi anche durante lo spurgoquando viene utilizzato per
spurgare con aria pulita.
Prassi ottimali

Nel recarsi al luogo di utilizzo, collocare l'analizzatore di gas nell’abitacolo del
veicolo, non nel bagagliaio, dove potrebbe essere soggetto a estremi di temperatura e
danneggiarsi per eventuali urti. Non appoggiare l’analizzatore di gas contro superfici
calde (ad es. tubo di aspirazione del gas, carrozzeria di un’autovettura o interno di
un’autovettura incustodita in estate), perché ciò fa aumentare la temperatura
dell’analizzatore di gas e può falsare le letture.

Negli spostamenti nell'area di utilizzo dell'analizzatore di gas, proteggerlo dalla luce
diretta del sole e dagli scrosci di pioggia.
Usare sempre il sifone per lo scarico della condensa!. Se il sifone si allaga, cambiare il
filtro e controllare che tutti i tubi siano liberi dalla condensa prima di riutilizzarlo
 Nota:
se lo scarico di un analizzatore di gas serie GA5000 è collegato ad un
sistema pressurizzato, ciò fa uscire un flusso di gas dall’entrata.
Taratura
Avvertenza
I gas di taratura possono essere pericolosi.
Per ciascun gas da utilizzare, leggere preventivamente la
relativa scheda tecnica di sicurezza, accertandosi di
comprenderne il contenuto.
Il regolatore fornito col kit di taratura è stato configurato per permettere l’erogazione di
un flusso fisso.
Dato che il flusso del regolatore è impostato in fabbrica, può essere aperto con una
semplice rotazione, senza effettuare regolazioni.
 LANDTEC
Page 173
GEM5000 Gas Analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
Luce di scarico
Avvertenza
Durante la taratura dell’analizzatore, vi sono due possibili
uscite per il gas: come di norma dalla luce di scarico
(gialla)dell’analizzatore o, in caso di sovrapressione, dalla
luce di 1/16” della valvola limitatrice di pressione rossa
situata sul regolatore.
Si raccomanda che entrambe le luci siano dotate di tubi di
scarico,
che devono sboccare in un’area ben ventilata.
che i tubi e i raccordi non presentino perdite.
Controllare
La taratura dell’analizzatore di gas va eseguita in un’area
idonea, adottando tutte le precauzioni necessarie per l’utilizzo
di gas potenzialmente pericolosi, esplosivi o tossici.
 Nota:
è possibile anche che il gas esca dall’uscita del flusso interno (blu)
dell’analizzatore di gas (vale solo per GA5000).
Manutenzione
Gli analizzatori di gas della serie 5000 devono essere sottoposti a regolare controllo di
manutenzione per accertare che il funzionamento sia corretto e preciso. Geotech (UK)
Limited raccomanda che la manutenzione e la taratura siano effettuate ogni 6 mesi.
Gli analizzatori di gas della serie 5000 hanno la certificazione ATEX per l’utilizzo in aree
potenzialmente esplosive. In quanto tali, la loro manutenzione deve essere affidata
esclusivamente a tecnici qualificati. La mancata osservanza di questa regola invalida la
garanzia ed eventualmente anche la certificazione ATEX.
Se la manutenzione dell’analizzatore di gas viene
effettuata da tecnici non qualificati, la certificazione ATEX
può venirne compromessa, pregiudicando così l’utilizzo in
condizioni di sicurezza dello strumento in un’atmosfera
potenzialmente esplosiva.
Avvertenza
Parti riparabili dall’utente:
Non vi sono parti riparabili dall’utente all’interno dello strumento.
Le parti seguenti possono essere riparate:
Filtro acqua in linea
Va controllato regolarmente per evidenziare eventuali
ostruzioni, condensa o danneggiamenti e sostituito se
necessario. Lo strumento non va mai usato senza il filtro
in linea, per evitare possibili infiltrazioni dperché vi
entrerebbe l’acqua.
Tubi di campionamento
Controllare sempre che i tubi di campionamento non
siano contaminati o danneggiati.
Raccordi del gas
Controllare periodicamente che i gommini O-ring dei
Page 174
 Copyright LANDTEC North America, Inc.
V1.13
GEM5000 gas analyzer
5K-MNL-GEM5000
raccordi del gas non siano danneggiati. Se danneggiati,
gli O-ring lasciano entrare aria nei tubi di
campionamento, sfalsando le letture. Se l’O-ring risulta
danneggiato, è necessario sostituire tutto il raccordo.
Materiale del filtro H2S
Quando il materiale del filtro cambia colore e diventa
grigio chiaro, il filtro va sostituito.
