Bacharach Test (True Spot® Smoke Tester)

Bacharach Test


Accurate smoke readings in less than one minute

  • Quickly checks smoke level in inert / flue gases
  • Can save combustion equipment and electronic analyzers from soot damage

The True Spot® smoke test method has long been recognized as the accepted standard for oil burner smoke tests. Testing the smoke content of inert / flue gases takes less than one minute and is easily determined using the smoke scale included with the instrument.

The True Spot® is an indispensable part of any oil burner service job. High smoke levels can cause premature failure in the combustion appliance/equipment, can damage relatively expensive electronic combustion analyzers, and can indicate excessive fuel usage.
