Original Press Release

Improvements to the KPSI(TM) 810 SuperDry(TM) Vent Filter

Press release date: May 15, 2014

Measurement Specialties, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEAS) has changed the desiccant material in the KPSI 810 SuperDryTM Vent Filter.  The new material is a silica gel with a cobalt chloride indicator.  Our testing indicates the moisture protection properties of this material are superior to the older crystalline material.  During field trials, we have experienced a much longer product life at the same humidity conditions.  Customers will still see the color change from blue to pink as an indicator the desiccant material is saturated and needs to be replaced.

Vent Filters provide the highest accuracy capability and utilize indicating desiccant to prevent moisture from entering the vent tube and damaging transducers with vented gage reference pressure format. All vented gage transducers are shipped with our SuperDry™ Vent Filter. This vent filter design prevents moisture from entering the vent tube for at least one year without maintenance, at no additional cost. The vent filters are 6.0 in (15.3 cm) long with a 0.75" diameter.

Measurement Specialties, Inc. designs and manufactures sensors and sensor-based systems. The company produces a wide variety of sensors and transducers to measure precise ranges of physical characteristics such as pressure, force, vibration, torque, position, temperature, humidity, fluid properties, mass air flow and photo optics. Measurement Specialties uses multiple advanced technologies – including piezo-resistive, electro-optic, electro-magnetic, variable reluctance, magneto resistive, digital encoders, thermistors, thermocouples, RTDs, capacitive, resonant beam, application specific integrated circuits (ASICs), micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), piezoelectric polymers and strain gauges to engineer sensors that operate accurately and cost-effectively in customers' applications.
