This unit has been replaced by the Kane 3500 Series Differential Pressure Meter.
Most manometers display to 0.01 mbar / 1 Pa resolution which is adequate for many HVAC applications.
However, modern high efficiency boilers have air/gas ratio valves which must be accurately set at very low differential pressures - typically between 0.00 and -0.05 mbar. The pressure also pulsates which makes it impossible to measure with a standard electronic manometer.
The KANE3100-1 micro-manometer solves these problems. At low pressures it reads to 0.001 mbar, is accurate to +/-0.005 mbar, - significantly better than any standard manometer - and has a smoothing mode to damp out pulsing. These features also make it ideal for flue draught measurement.
The KANE3100-1 is temperature compensated to remove "drift" when taken from a cold van into a warm home. This ensures stable readings, particularly important when performing automatic "tightness test" sequences. It can also store up to 250 timed and dated tests in the memory.
Live or stored tests including the "tightness test" can be printed via an optional infra-red printer.
The new KANE3100-1 is the first micro-manometer truly designed for heating engineers.
The KANE3100-2 and 3100-5 have similar features to the KANE3100-1 but with higher measuring ranges.
The KANE3100 has a tough metal case and is supplied with a pouch, 1 metre of tubing, battery and manual.
