Hi gents. Looking to get a new analyser and have been looking at the TPI 716 that Andy (Morttico) is using. Its CO sensor has a maximum of 10000 ppm and can be changed for an upgrade if 100000 ppm. What is the highest CO you can recall recording? Tom
My Testo 330-2 isn't going any further than 8000 ppm. But this variant does sport a automatic dilution feature which kicks in when the CO is too high. That way, you'll be able to keep recording. By the way, when the level would be more than 10000 ppm, the heater is smoking like mad. And chances are the thing will stop anyway.
Yeah I almost had my hands on the 335, the absolute rolls royce but ebay messed up and didn't accept my bids. Andy seems to have good results though with his, though it doesn't have the bwlls and whistles. The replacement sensor goes up to 100k and converts from ppm to a percentage.
The TPI 716 isn't as refined as the Testo 330-2LL. Features like the condensate filter in the analyser itself and one-piece connector on the bottom of the analyser show Testo have thought about the design. On the TPI the condensate filter is in-line on the hose and the connections for temp & pump are separate on the top of the analyser body. Having used the TPI I can see that re-zeroing in place would be nice - saves having to take it outside in the fresh air to re-zero.
Data logging is simple enough (software is included) but the charts are basic to say the least. I exported the data into Excel and created my own charts to try to mimic the ones Peter has posted for easy comparison. However, Excel charts don't support more than two Y axis so you need an add-on (Multi-Y) to display the CO, O2, Eff & Stack readings.
Would I buy another? Hmmmm... the TPI works well for me, but if you can justify the cost save up for a Testo.

deadstarsstillburn: Hi there. I was directed this way by folks on the Permies.com website and am hoping I can get some information on how a total newbie can get started designing, siting, building, and not-dying-in-a-horrible-house-fire with a new RMH in a 160-year old home

deadstarsstillburn: The people over there recommended either a 6" batchbox or an 8" J-tube. I don't know what those are but am going to try to figure that out. What I need is a blueprint that I can scale to fit the need for my house. I have something likne 5000 square feet

deadstarsstillburn: but I do not need to heat all of it by any means. probably only need to heat half of that, maybe less.
Oct 21, 2020 6:53:15 GMT -8
deadstarsstillburn: moreover, the house has 3 storeys (large attic) so I assume if I get very efficient heating on the ground floor, that will go a long way toward heating the upstairs as well, no?
