#12 - Spare Parts for Gas Analyzers

We get a number of inquiries about spare parts for Nova analyzers. This is understandable. Continuous reliable process data is often one of the most valuable assets in a facility. Taking steps to ensure that the data stream is uninterrupted makes a lot of sense. We also like to see that our customers are protecting and maintaining another important asset – the analyzer itself.

The most commonly-sold analyser spare parts are filters. That’s a good thing because clogged or fouled filters will decrease sample flow rate and increase analytical error. If the filter eventually degrades enough, break-through can occur which may result in damage to critical components in the analyzer.

The most common filters in Nova continuous gas analyzers include the pre-filters, particulate filters, condensate filters, finishing filters, oil filters, liquid blocks, etc. Many customers prefer to have a few spares on hand instead of waiting for a failure. Most filter elements cost between $20-40USD. The low cost certainly makes being prepared an easy choice.

To determine which filters your analyzer requires, check the parts page in your operator manual.
