Signal Model 320 Non-Methane (NMHC) Cutter is an external non-methane hydrocarbon cutter providing capability to measure methane using a standard heated flame ionization analyzer (FIA) . It provides a low cost alternative to an "all-in-one" FIA incorporating a built in cutter.

Housed in a portable case suitable for inline usage with portable and fixed equipment, this unit is ideal for use with Signal Model 3010 MiniFID or other portable FID units. Two modes of operation allow a reading for either total hydrocarbons (THC) or methane (CH4) only, allowing one to derive a value for non-methane hydrocarbon (NMHC) concentration. In the methane mode, the sample is directed through a heated catalyst; this catalyst oxidizes non -methane species of hydrocarbons in the sample. The THC mode bypasses this catalyst to provide a reading for total hydrocarbon. These two modes allow the derivation of a non -methane hydrocarbon by simply deducting the methane only reading from the total hydrocarbon value. As a standalone unit, this cutter is suitable for use with any heated FIA to obtain a methane-only or non-methane concentration reading.
