Default Detector RF
If your detector responds to a chemical differently than its actual concentration, you should adjust the RF (Response Factor) to ensure you have accurate readings.
RF=(Actual Concentration)/(Detector Response)
Having selected a detector, you can then edit the Response Factor to a number other than 1. If you change the number, it will automatically save. If you change your mind, select the Trash Can icon and try again.
Detector Type Combinations When a tour is built, Chateau looks at each stream in the Tour.


In Resources / Stream, each Stream has a Detector Type assigned to it. This Detector type is displayed here so the tech will know which type of detector to use.
