Measure up to 99,999 ppm with the TPI 706 tests forklift exhaust gases for the presence and location of carbon monoxide leaks. This instrument fits comfortably in your hand and operates with just the push of a button.
- Pump driven for fast response
- Store function to save up to 50 readings
- Will not shut off if 15 ppm CO is present for increased safety
- Push on fittings for fast and easy use
- Optional A740 IR printer available for hard copies of test results
- Large easy to read backlit display
The 706 is an advanced state-of-the-art carbon monoxide (CO) gas analyzer designed to provide part per million readings from 0- 10,000 ppm. The 706 is capable of performing ambient as well as flue gas checks with its hot air probe and internal pump.
The 706 is utilizes an advanced long life electrochemical sensor that can be field calibrated and has a low replacement cost.
Features include IR printer port to print hard copy of data, 10 storage locations, Flow block indication, peak reading for test period as well as date and time.
Don’t expose yourself to Carbon Monoxide!
Review the list below for the maximum allowable exposure limits and symptoms developed with CO inhalation.
- 9ppm: The maximum allowable concentration for short term exposure in a living area according to ASHRAE
- 50ppm: The Federal OSHA standard for continuous exposure in any eight hour period.
- 200ppm*: Maximum concentration allowable any time according to OSHA. Slight headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea after 2-3 hours.
- 400ppm*: Frontal headaches within 1-2 hours, life threatening after 3 hours. Maximum allowable limit in flue gas according to EPA and AGA.
- 800ppm*: Headache, dizziness, nausea, and convulsions with 45 minutes. Unconsciousness within 2 hours. Death within 2-3 minutes.
- 1600ppm*: Headache, dizziness, and nausea within 20 minutes. Death within 1 hour.
- 3200ppm*: Headache, dizziness, and nausea within 5-10 minutes. Death within 30 minutes.
- 6400ppm*: Headache, dizziness, and nausea within 1-2 minutes. Death within 10-15 minutes.
- 12800ppm*: Death within 1-3 minutes.
* With exposure to this concentration and higher the effects can vary depending on size, age, sex, and health.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I purchase a pump driven CO analyzer rather than a less expensive CO monitor?
A pump driven analyzer is a much more versatile tool. The pump draws a sample into the instrument which allows source pinpointing. A pump driven instrumentwill also respond faster, and can be used for hot air (flue) sampling.
Can a CO analyzer be used for heat exchanger testing?
While a CO analyzer can provide a safety test of the furnace, it cannot provide a discernable test for heat exchanger integrity. The TPI HXG2 and HETKIT are recommended for this test and together are AGA approved.
How often should I calibrate my CO analyzer?
It depends on the use of the instrument. If used for service work, it is recommended that an annual calibration be performed. If any aspect of worker safety is included in the instrument’s job, monthly calibration is recommended.
If I perform my own calibration, do I increase my liability?
As long as traceable calibration gas is used and manufacturer’s calibration procedures are followed, liability will be minimized. Calibration records should be documented and retained.
How many calibrations can I expect out of a 21 liter bottle of calibration gas?
How long will the CO sensor last?
Two to three years.
