The Fyrite ® INSIGHT ® Plus is Bacharach’s premium residential and light commercial combustion analyzer. This American-made analyzer uses advanced technology to accurately measure, analyze and report results that validate safe operation, efficiently tune older systems and save customers’ money.
Powered by innovative Tune-RiteTM software, the industry’s first-ever on-demand HVAC “assistant,” it helps
both new and seasoned technicians save money by making more thorough and efficient service calls.
Featuring industry-exclusive B-Smart ® CO sensor technology, it enables technicians and HVAC/R service
representatives to install pre-calibrated sensors right in the field to avoid costly downtime and inconvenience.
Five Tools in ONE with Real-Time Analysis
The Fyrite ® INSIGHT ® Plus is a five-in-one steady state combustion analyzer that is capable of measuring flue
gas and room air CO, and can also function as a dual channel digital thermometer (up to 999o F) and a digital
manometer (which measures draft, gas pressure, ESP, and up to +/- 40 INWC).
An Industry Innovation - Introducing Tune-RiteTM
A technological first, Tune-RiteTM is an on-demand “assistant” that will
help you save money and win customer loyalty by documenting more
thorough and efficient service calls - with fewer callbacks.
Tune-RiteTM is geared for residential appliance checks, including natural
gas furnaces, hot water heaters and oil boilers. At the touch of a button,
the software monitors the combustion analysis process in real-time to:
Steady-State and Tune-Rite TM - Why It Matters
- Deliver the most accurate analysis every time
- Make instant troubleshooting suggestions
- Provide guidance based on live data plus typical characteristics
of the combustion appliance
As it evaluates the flue gas, Tune-Rite’sTM full-color graphic display
shows you when the appliance has reached steady-state, which is
critical for consistent, repeatable, and accurate combustion testing.
Measured values of oxygen, stack temperature and carbon monoxide
are compared to typical values for the
equipment under optimum conditions
Based on the appliance type, Tune-RiteTM helps you to determine if
it’s operating safely and in the acceptable ranges. If not, you’ll get a
list of possible causes related to the readings and an easy-to-navigate
Combustion analysis should be performed only after combustion
parameters indicate that the appliance has reached “steady-state”
operating conditions. Steady-state can be gauged by three things:
- The change in temperature of combustion products in the vent
- The change in the percentage of oxygen in the flue gas mix,
which assists in determining if there is excess air or excess
fuel in the combustion process.
- The change in Carbon Monoxide (CO) over time - CO levels
will spike during the initial fire which is normal, but they
should normalize to a lower output as steady-state is reached.
If a steady-state is not reached, the equipment may require major tuning,
repairs or replacement. Tune-RiteTM helps service technicians to start the
analysis at the optimum time, yielding more accurate readings and an
effective diagnosis. Once this stable condition is reached, combustion
analysis can be performed.
The Benefits Of Tune-RiteTM Technology
Tune-RiteTM software eliminates the guesswork commonly involved in
determining steady-state by showing you a live graphical representation of all
combustion parameters as they settle into a steady-state condition. When
the combustion equipment reaches steady-state, a red dot displayed on the
LED readout changes to green and is ready for analysis. It’s that simple.
What Readings Should You See During Testing?
The simple answer is, it’s not simple. Measured values of oxygen, stack temperature and carbon monoxide
vary depending on the heating equipment and fuel type. Even seasoned pros find it challenging to keep
up with combustion guidelines for all possible equipment types and manufacturers. Sometimes furnace or
boiler manufacturers will detail the optimum ranges in their installation manual – however tracking down the
information can be difficult.
Fortunately, Bacharach has done the homework and programmed into the Tune-RiteTM software typical
ranges for these parameters based on the fuel and equipment type. Those ranges can be seen in an easy-to-
read bar graph format, along with the current values. Green, red and
yellow indicators show whether the readings are in range (green), out
of range (red), or unstable (yellow).
What If The Readings Are Out Of Range?
ombustion analysis results that are not in the expected ranges
indicate there is a problem. Depending on the readings, it is
possible to narrow down the potential causes of a problem. Tune-
- and it will
display a prioritized list of most likely potential issues to
investigate. A drill-down into a “checklist” helps to keep
track and record what has been inspected, adjusted,
repaired or found to be an issue.
Generate Credible, Comprehensive Service Reports
With today’s informed homeowner, the importance of “proof of
service” is critical for customer trust and loyalty. Homeowners
may be skeptical until they see a detailed service record. Using
“As Found” readings
taken before you’ve
performed any service
and then recording the
“As Left” readings,
clearly documents the
results of the adjustments or repairs that you’ve made.
Tune-RiteTM helps you do that with easy-to-store data,
along with a checklist of issues that you have reviewed
and possibly corrected. Stored records can be printed
immediately as a comprehensive account of your work
which presents a professional and credible record of
everything that was done during the service call.
