UEi C164 Flue Gas Combustion Analzyer
The UEi C164 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 C164 combustion analyzer offers direct CO2 measurement, Nitric Oxide measurement, as well as differential pressure, an over-range protection pump, wireless module, and a 30-second start up time. The UEi C164 measures CO, CO2, NO, 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 C164 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.
In addition to the CO and CO2 sensors, the C164 adds in the nitric oxide (NO) sensor for the measurement of nitrogen oxides. Nitrogen oxides are emissions that are formed during the combustion process that are harmful to the environment and should be minimized. Combustion analysis is an essential step to properly operate and control any combustion process in order to obtain the highest combustion efficiency with the lowest emissions of pollutants.
The UEI C164 combustion analyzer performs a heat exchanger test. A heat exchange 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 cycle 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.
The UEi added an over-range protection pump in the C164 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 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 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 C164 portable gas analyzer has a protective rubber boot with magnets for hands-free operation and is supplied with a probe with an integral temperature sensor.
