The Kane 457 is a combined ambient and flue gas analyser. Ideal for investigating incidents of fumes smells or combustion leakage in domestic premises as per CMDDA1.  Suitable for commercial catering and light industrial applications. For boiler installation, testing catering appliances, flueless gas fires and radiant industrial heaters.

CO2 is measured directly by an infrared sensor in % volume and ppm. Carbon Monoxide is measured with a long life sensor, reducing ongoing ownership costs.  Differential temperature and differential pressure are also measured. Operation is by a rotary switch with parameters shown on a four-line display.  The internal pump has an off switch to preserve battery life.

Datalogging is included with options to download results wirelessly or send to an infrared printer.  The Kane 457 measures combustion efficiency, CO/CO2 ratio, pressure, let by and tightness, commission testing and flue draft.

Suitable for the following fuel types; Natural gas Propane, Butane, LPG, Light Oils (28/35 sec) and Wood Pellets.

Replaces Kane 455 model, adding the functionality of ambient safety monitoring without needing a separate instrument.
