UEi C163KIT Flue Gas Combustion Analyzer with Differential Pressure
The UEi C163KIT is a residential/commercial flue gas combustion analyzer with EOS Technology that gives you the versatility to check furnace efficiency, boiler tuning, as well as water heaters. The C163 combustion analyzer offers direct CO2 measurement, differential pressure, over-range protection pump, a wireless module, and a 30-second start-up time. The UEi C163 flue gas analyzer measures CO, CO2, pressure, flue, and inlet temperature and calculates O2, differential temperature, CO/CO2 ratio, efficiency (net, gross), excess air, CO/CO2 ratio, differential pressure, and losses. The UEi C163KIT includes both a case and printer.

The C163 flue gas analyzer replaces the Oxygen sensor with the UEi’s EOS Carbon Dioxide (CO2) sensor. This EOS technology protects the CO2 sensor because the flue gases do not make direct contact with it providing more accurate calculations as well as being more cost-efficient as a technician never has to replace the O2 sensor.
The large six-line display is backlit and provides the user with relevant information based on current activity including instrument status via the new intelligent status bar which is the last line on the display. The status bar icons are designed to provide quick and simple instrument status information without having to navigate complicated menu systems or detract from the job at hand.
The UEI C163 combustion analyzer performs a heat exchanger test. A heat exchanger test is important as each time a gas furnace goes through a heating cycle – the metal heat-exchanger expands as it heats up. At the end of the heating cycle – the heat-exchanger cools off and contracts. Over the years, metal fatigue caused by the recurring expansion and contraction often causes a crack in the heat exchanger. Once cracked, the crack will get worse as time passes. A cracked heat exchanger can leak Carbon Monoxide (CO) into the home’s indoor air. This poses a safety and health hazard for the home’s occupants.
UEi added an over-range protection pump in the C163 combustion analyzer that when activated shuts down the main sampling pump. This allows the sample system to be purged with fresh air. Once the readings have returned to a safe level, the protection pump will shut down and the main pump will reactivate.
The UEi combustion analyzers use a new data storage system allowing the user to store the maximum number of logs of interest to them, rather than be restricted to an allowance of particular logs. The memory can store up to 30 logs of any combination of combustion, AUX, or Pressure/ Temperature tests. The UEi C163 residential combustion analyzer also includes wireless capabilities to a printer app for compatible iOS and Android devices.
The C163 analyzer has a protective rubber boot with magnets for hands-free operation and is supplied with a probe with an integral temperature sensor.
UEi Service+ Program
UEi has a new Service+ Program for the C161, C163, and C165+ combustion analyzers to keep your analyzer performing at its best. All flue gas analyzers drift out of calibration over time, regardless of use. However, with the new UEi Service+ Program, you can be confident that your analyzer is operating at the manufacturer’s specification to provide your customers the best service possible. The new Service+ Program offers a 1-Year warranty extension, up to 6 years, recertification with a 30-point inspection, a 24-hour service turnaround, and free UPS ground shipping to and from the UEI ISO certified Indianapolis service center. By booking recertification of your C163 analyzer within 12 months from the date of purchase or the date of the last recertification, contractors will receive reduced service pricing that lowers the cost of ownership. For more information or to register your UEi combustion analyzer go to www.ueitest.com/service.
