Literature Describes Wager Photoelectric Smoke Indicator

A new Wager Photoelectric Smoke Indicator System, particularly suited to monitoring diesel and gas turbine emissions, detects and measures accurately the opacity of smoke exhaust with no interference to readings from ambient light. All readings are to within 2-percent accuracy on a scale of 0-100 percent. Readouts are displayed on two scales, 0-100 percent and 0-20 percent, with additional scales available for even more precise readings.

Smoke opacity measurement is achieved by passing the exhaust plume between a light source and a photosensitive receiver, with the resulting smoke density displayed as a percent opacity on the meter scales.

This new Wager system, designated Models P-5/P-5W, complements Wager Photoelectric, Visual, and Visual/Photoelectric Smoke Indicator Systems long proven for steam boiler application, in powerplants and marine service, to facilitate compliance with environmental regulations and to monitor combustion conditions for appreciable fuel economy.
