  • Does this product come with a warranty?

  • All devices from Felix Instruments – Applied Food Science come with a 12-month warranty at the point of sale. The warranty covers repairing and replacing defective parts of the instrument that were manufactured directly by Felix Instruments. The warranty does not cover wear and tear, neglect, misuse, accident, or excessive deterioration. Further, unauthorized repair and alteration by an unauthorized party voids the warranty. More information can be found in the operation manual of your instrument.

  • Is the Three Gas Analyzer waterproof?

  • The Three Gas Analyzer is not designed to be waterproof and should not be used underwater. The Three Gas Analyzer is designed to be water-resistant. Use in light rain is fine, however, there are electronics inside of the Three Gas Analyzer that can be damaged from water entering the instrument, so it is not recommended to use the Three Gas Analyzer during heavy rainfall

  • What are the operating conditions of this product?

  • The operating conditions of the Ripen It! Gas Analyzer are 0°C – 50°C and 0 – 90% non-condensing humidity.

  • How many measurements can the included SD card hold?

  • The included 16gb SD card can hold approximately 60 million measurements. If saving data every minute, that equates to approximately 40,000 days of measurement before the SD card is full.

  • What types of tubing materials are recommended to avoid outgas interference?

  • Viton and Teflon have successfully been found not to outgas.
