MZA 6010

Multi-Zone/Furnace Multi-Gas Analyzer

The MZA 6010 is a Multi-Gas Infared (IR) analyzer used to analyze gases in multiple zones of a furnace or furnaces. It measures Carbon Monoxide (CO), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), and Natural Gas (CH4) typically found in an endothermic atmosphere. The measurement of these gases, combined with furnace temperature information, allows the MZA 6010 to calculate the percent Carbon (%C) of the measured gas. A Hydrogen (H2) sensor can also be incorporated as an option to provide a more complete picture of the measured gas. Communications and zones can be configured based on a plant’s individual needs.

(Q9) How often should I calibrate the MZA?

If the device is used...Then perform a calibration...
Less than weeklyPrior to use

(Q10) How much flow do I need to get a good sample?

SSi recommends 1.5 scfh.  However, anywhere from 1 – 2 scfh is acceptable.

(Q11) How do I keep a clean sample going into my MZA?

The bowl filter leading into the unit contains a filter element (p/n 37051) that can be replaced when it becomes dirty.

(Q12) What are the IR shim and CH4 factors?

These are factors that go into the calculation for determining the %Carbon. Manually adjusting them will have a direct effect on the %Carbon being calculated.  Contact SSi for more information.

(Q13) How do I add an external instrument?

For RS485 Communications:

  1. Wire to the terminals 1561 and 1571 inside the MZA.
  2. On the MGA screen interface, go to the Menu and log in with the number 2.
  3. Select “Communications and source setup” > “Atmosphere/Temp sources”
  4. Here you can edit to add your Probe Temp/mV Instrument or Furnace temp Instrument.
  5. When you have selected the appropriate device, edit the Probe Temp/mV instrument address or the Furnace temp instrument address.

(Q14) How do I set the Device time on the MZA?

To set the Device time to match the Touch screen date and time:

  1. Go to Menu and log in with the number 2.
  2. Then select “Instrument set up” > “General set up.”
  3. Edit the Device time to match the touch screen time by selecting “Device Time” > “Edit.”

(Q15) How do I get Nitriding calculations on my MZA?

  1. Call SSi  at 513-772-0060 for a Code of the Day login number.
  2. Log in with the code.
  3. Select the “Factory use only” option.
  4. On the following screen select “Set Instrument Type.”
  5. Set the Nitrider Calculations option to Enable.
  6. You will then need to cycle power to have the correct Calculations page displayed.

(Q17) How do I set up my Auto calibration?

  1. First, make sure you have the Zero and Span gas tanks hooked up to the correct calibration ports on the side of the MZA.
  2. On the Interface go to Menu and log in with the number 2.
  3. Select “Automatic Calibration setup.”  You will see the options to set the Auto calibration to YES or NO.
  4. Select “YES” to set up your desired calibration purge and intervals.

(Q18) Where should I mount the MZA enclosure?

SSi recommends that the MZA be mounted fairly close to the source it is sampling. It can be further away, but a longer sample tube increases the likelihood of leaks or contaminants.

(Q19) What is the recommended pressure for calibration gases?

The incoming pressurized gas goes through a small fixed orifice inside the analyzer, which should require between 20 and 50 psi to maintain proper flow.

(Q20) How do I clear the Auto calibration alarm?

  1. Go to the Menu and log in with the number 2.
  2. Select “Automatic Calibration set up” then change the Auto Calibration from YES to NO. That will clear the Auto Calibration alarm banner.

**It is important to note WHY you were getting the alarm, to make sure that you were getting adequate flow and the calibration was able to complete successfully.

(Q21) How do I deactivate one of the zones?

  1. Go to the Menu and Log in with the number 2.
  2. Select “Edit Active Zones.” From this screen you can deactivate a zone and turn off the corresponding pump.

(Q22) What is the maximum number of zones I can have?

The MZA has the ability to analyze up to eight zones. Note that this requires two Sample Pump Boxes (p/n 13662).
