Using Oxygen Analyzers


All oxygen analyzers will be different. Most of them will come with their own user manuals, and people should read those before they even consider getting started in most cases. Reading the user manual should prepare people for most of the remaining steps.

The basic format of oxygen analyzers should not be overly different for most people. so some of the processes will transfer if people have learned how to operate one oxygen analyzer.

Most oxygen analyzers are battery-powered. The batteries might be sold separately. They might also be included in the package with the rest of the oxygen analyzer parts. People will need to start by inserting the battery into the correct location.

The Oxygen Analyzer
Hand Pump

An oxygen analyzer will typically be equipped with a hand pump. This hand pump is very long and narrow. People will need to squeeze that hand pump in order to test it. One end of the hand pump will blow out the air and one end will not.

The end of the hand pump that actually blows out the air is the one that needs to be connected tightly to the inlet port of the oxygen analyzer. Once people have completed this test, the oxygen analyzer itself should be close to ready for anything else that people will need.

Running the Test

There should be an indicator knob on the oxygen analyzer in the front. Users will need to rotate that knob in a clockwise direction all the way. From there, they need to pump in a large enough quantity of air to get the sensor of the device conditioned well enough. Then, people need to turn the knob until it is in the 20.9 position, or whatever position is the equivalent for the oxygen analyzer in question.

The hand pump should be equipped with an area that people will squeeze in order to pump enough oxygen into the device to run the test in the first place. They will need to keep squeezing and releasing the pump in order to make this work. Performing this action is similar to the act of inflating a bicycle tire. It should only take a number of seconds for people to get all of the air that they need at this stage, so they should generally not worry about having to set aside too much time for it.
