The LC-450D from Toray Engineering Co Ltd, is a highly advanced, high performance Zirconia Oxygen Analyser. Designed and manufactured by Toray Engineering, who have been at the forefront of Zirconia Oxygen Analyser design for over 30 years.
The LC-450D features very high levels of durability and reliability. It combines this with a desirable set of features, making it ideal for many applications in the electronics and process control industries.
Toray Zirconia Oxygen Analysers determine oxygen concentration by using the conductivity of a Zirconia ceramic cell. Zirconia ceramic cells allow only oxygen ions to pass through at high temperatures. With reference gas on one side and sample gas on the other, oxygen ions move from the side with the highest concentration to that with the lowest concentration. This movement of ions generates an Electro Motive Force (EMF) which can be measured to determine oxygen content. This process is in accordance with the Nernst Equation.
The LC-450D has a fast response time (T90 within 30 secs) with minimal line lag, features that are valued highly in many applications such as residual oxygen monitoring in the control and monitoring of processing atmosphere in 3D metal printing, semiconductor vacuum deposition systems, baking furnaces and cultivation and fermentation applications.
A key feature of the Toray LC-450D is it’s unique sensor coating resulting in very high reliability and durability leading to much longer sensor life and thus less calibration down time when compared with other solutions. This can mean significantly lower lifetime operating costs. This sensor technology also creates a lower sensor resistance which results in extremely reliable, repeatable, accurate and precise readings over time, a feature which is particularly desirable in an Oxygen Analsyser.
The LC-450D is a compact oxygen analyser designed for monitoring oxygen content in a very wide range from low ppm (1 ppm) up to 100% Volume Oxygen (Values less than 1 ppm are possible, but aren’t guaranteed, and are considered reference values).
It is easy to install, and features a 24VDC power supply (100-240VAC is also available see LC-450A).
