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.

For contactors in the Building, Facilities Maintenance, HVAC, and Electrical industries, the ability to visualise each situation you are facing can make a huge difference. Knowing precisely where to start with a job, can save time and effort, meaning you increase efficiency, and ultimately provide a faster service to customers.
Those 20-30 minutes extra spent diagnosing each job soon add up, particularly at busy times of the year when you’ve got a waiting list. With that in mind, a valuable addition to many contractors toolkit is a thermal imaging camera.
But what specific applications is a thermal camera most useful for?
Below we summarise some of the best examples where thermal imaging has time and time again, proved an extremely effective diagnostic tool for contractors:
Heating and installation systems
- Checking radiators for build-up of silt deposits
- Identifying underfloor heating abnormalities
- Identifying overloads, imminent malfunctions or existing defects in switching cabinets and wiring
Construction and Mould Assessment
- Visualising thermal bridges in buildings
- Detecting areas that are prone to mould
- Pinpointing thermal anomalies in leaking pipes
- Locating roof leaks
Structural and Insulation Defects
- Finding insulation defects
- Checking air tightness of windows and doors
