The flux measurement
is very easy and very fast and can be done under difficult
WEST Systems provide two accumulation chambers (100 mm height / 200 mm height) in order to extend the flux measurement range.
Two pipes connect the accumulation chamber to the instrument.
mixing device, alkaline battery supplied, allow a optimal mixing of the
gas inside the chamber to increase the measurement accuracy.
The LI-800 version allows you to carry out measurements
in a wider range of carbon dioxide flux, in particular for
small flux, where the measurements carried out by means
of the Drager version are affected by a rather significant
Since 1994 several surveys have been carried out to monitor
areas with volcanic hazard and to map CO2 degassing areas.
A small, pocket size, computer (PDA) manage the instrument, showing the result(s) of measurement in real time.
The connection between the PDA and instrument is realized using bluetooth/wireless devices.
