1.2 Security

Do not operate the instrument if there are signs of damage on the housing,
mains unit or connected cables.

Do not carry out any contact measurements on uninsulated, live parts.

Use only original spare parts from Testo.

Only perform maintenance and repair work on this instrument that is
described in this documentation. Follow the prescribed steps exactly when
doing the work.

Maintenance work that is not described in this documentation must only be
carried out by trained service engineers.

Temperature information given on probes/sensors relates only to the
measuring range of the sensor technology. Do not expose handles and feed
lines to temperatures in excess of 70 °C (158 °F), unless they are expressly
authorized for use at higher temperatures.

Do not use any leaky or damaged batteries.

Make sure that the condensate has been fully emptied out of the
condensate trap before storage in the packaging.

1 Safety and disposal
1.3 Disposal

At the end of its useful life, deliver the product to the separate collection
point for electric and electronic devices (observe local regulations) or return
the product to Testo for disposal.

Dispose of faulty rechargeable batteries and spent batteries in accordance
with the valid legal specifications.
1.4 Using a powerbank
The power bank is not included in delivery and is not available from
Testo. You can use any power bank that complies with the statutory
regulations and fulfil the following specifications:
Output current: 5 VDC at least 3 A
Devices with a lower output current must not be used. There is a risk
of overload.
CAUTION
Damage to USB-capable devices.
In order to avoid damage, the external sample gas conditioner must never be
connected to other USB-capable devices (e.g. laptop, PC, etc.) via the
adapter cable (0449 0131) for the powerbank.
CAUTION
Malfunction on the external sample gas conditioner
In order to avoid malfunctions, the external sample gas conditioner must only
be connected to a powerbank using the connection cable supplied. Cables
with a smaller cross-section can cause malfunctions.

2 Description of the instrument
2 Description of the instrument
The conditioning of the measurement gas via the external sample gas
conditioner leads to a reduction of the water vapour present in the flue gas
(dilution of the measurement result) to a minimum through condensing out. The
gas path has been optimized to leach out the smallest possible amount of
water-soluble flue gases and thus to ensure a very precise measurement result.
The condensate collects in the condensate trap and is emptied by opening the
sealing clip on the drain hose.

3 Using the product
3 Using the product
The product is not suitable for unsupervised continuous operation,
because there is no active fill level monitoring. This may lead to further
accidental ingress of the condensate into the flue gas analyzer.
The product must not be used on the crude gas side if the crude gas
contains a high proportion of hydrogen chloride (HCl). This can happen
in the incineration of waste or coal, in which case the product may only
be used on the clean gas side.
The analyzer’s ventilation slits must not be covered.
1 Connect the measurement gas outlet
to the analyzer.
2 Connect the probe to the
measurement gas inlet.
The hoses must not be bent through 180°.

3 Using the product
3 Connect the power supply to the
external sample gas conditioner.
4 Connect a mains unit (0554 8808) or a
powerbank as a power source
The LED now lights up orange and cools down to the target
temperature.
5 If applicable, fix the powerbank with
O-rings (available as an accessory).
6 Close the sealing clip to ensure
leaktightness.

3 Using the product
Make sure that the operating position of the gas conditioner has at
least a 30° gradient. If the gradient is not adhered to, the condensate
will come into contact with the cooling unit and the cooling capacity
will be reduced.
7 Carry out a tightness test with the analyzer, see instruction manual
for the testo 350 (0970 3510), chapter 5.5.2 Gas path check.
8 LED lights up green: The target temperature has been reached and the
measurement can be started.
The condensate must not exceed the maximum fill level quantity,
because otherwise the capacity may decrease and the condensate can
be drawn in by the analyzer.
For accurate SO2/NOx measurements, we recommend using the SO2
low-Set heated (0563 2251) or the SO2 low-Set unheated (0563 1251).
Keep the condensate level as low as possible and adjust it via the
previously used (pre-moistened) system.

4 Maintenance
Emptying the condensate container
1 Empty the condensate container by fully opening the sealing clip (1)
before you put the instrument into storage.
The sealing plug (2) of the condensate container can also be removed
to fully empty it.
CAUTION
The condensate may be acidic
Risk of burns to the hands!
- Wear acid-resistant safety gloves, glasses and overalls to empty the
condensate.
2 Put the instrument into storage or pack into the carry case.
The condensate must be completely dried before the
instrument is packed in the case.
