This year at PHEX Manchester, on the 4th & 5th October, we will be introducing the new testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser. Designed to provide the domestic engineer with all the functionality to provide a complete heating system diagnosis, the testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser has a colour graphic display, providing a unique user interface experience to allow simple access to measurement menus for flue gas analysis, draught measurement, pressure, ambient CO measurement, letby & tightness testing, and many more. Use the testo 320 to quickly determine and eliminate malfunctions, monitor legal limit values and spot checks in daily work on servicing heating systems.
The testo 320 Flue Gas Analyser comes as standard with bluetooth communication to android devices such as a smartphone or tablet device using the testo combustion App. This allows users to control the analyser remotely, view graphical data on set parameters, and also provide fast and efficient reports on measurements direct from site via email.
The 320 can also be equipped with optional probes to provide the abilty to carry out gas leak detection on pipework, and also if required measurement of ambient CO & CO2 values.
Also on the stand
Other technology we will have on display includes our award winning testo Smart Probes.
Smartphones and tablets make our day-to-day life easier in almost every situation, so why can’t this apply to contractors’ measurement tasks? That’s precisely what testo’s product developers asked themselves – and the result was the Smart Probes range.
The testo Smart Probes range makes measurement easier, more mobile and more productive than ever before
The eight pocket-sized professional measuring instruments, which can be connected to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, are operated entirely via the free Smart Probes App. Each instrument has been designed for it’s own specific application, measuring temperature, humidity, pressure or air velocity. Competitively priced, testo Smart Probes are the ideal instruments for HVAC contractors with an enthusiasm for technology.
Come and see us at the show!
Visit testo on stand 29 at PHEX Manchester, Old Trafford (Manchester United FC) on the 4th & 5th October.

Testo Limited has pledged its support for Gas Safety Week (18-24 September 2017). The seventh annual Gas Safety Week will see organisations from across the UK work together, to encourage all gas consumers to make sure they have their gas appliances checked annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer and protect against the dangers of unsafe gas appliances, such as fires, leaks, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
With 21 deaths and over 800 gas-related injuries in the last three years1, it’s crucial that people have their appliances checked each year to be assured they are working safely and efficiently. People should also Trust the Triangle and check that their engineer is Gas Safe registered. Anyone working on gas appliances while not being registered is working illegally.
Mike Murley, Marketing Director at Testo Limited commented, “As a leading manufacturer of gas safety instruments, Testo is proud to support Gas Safety Week. Testo instruments, such as flue gas analysers and gas leak detectors, are used by Gas Safe registered engineers to ensure that domestic boilers are operating safely and efficiently and to provide consumers with evidence of this”.

Stay Gas Safe at home this Gas Safety Week by following these top tips:
- Sign up to a free annual gas safety check reminder service at staygassafe.co.uk
- Be aware of the signs that an unsafe gas appliance may cause such as a lazy yellow flame instead of a crisp blue flame; soot or staining on or around the appliance; excess condensation in the room
- Know the symptoms of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. CO gas is known as the ‘silent killer’ as it has no smell, taste or colour. The symptoms of CO poisoning include headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness, which can easily be mistaken for something else
- ‘Trust the Triangle’ and always ask to see an engineer’s Gas Safe ID card and check it to make sure the engineer is qualified to check or fit the appliance in question.
