Dew-Point Hygrometer takes measurements in less than 10 min.

Press Release Summary:

Utilizing ceramic sensor technology, Model MDM300 can accurately measure dew points as low as -70°C in less than 10 min. It features nickel metal hydride batteries and power management circuitry that provide user with 48 hr of use between charges, while flat battery can be recharged to 90% of full potential in 20 min. Connecting wirelessly to PC, unit can be used with external sensors to display dew point, pressure, or temperature or provide pressure/temperature compensation.

Original Press Release:

Cut out the Waiting with the MDM300 Advanced Dew-Point Hygrometer

Dew points as low as -70°C can now be measured accurately in less than 10 minutes - faster in many cases. Michell Instruments´ MDM300 advanced dew-point hygrometer can save engineers weeks of waiting time each year. MDM300 main applications are: compressed air dryers, medical gas quality checks, plastic moulding air dryers, SF6 in high voltage switchgear, industrial gas production and supply, pipeline drying, metallurgy...

Recent research into the operation of Michell Instruments´ ceramic sensor technology has helped the MDM300 provide faster measurements. This super-fast response does not rely on the sensor being dried by a desiccant, which means that every measurement is fast - not just the first of the day - allowing for many more measurements to be taken each day.

However, this is not the only way in which the MDM300 cuts out waiting. Efficient nickel metal hydride batteries and power management circuitry provide the user with 48 hours of use between charges - giving much more time in the field making measurements. In addition a flat battery can be recharged to 90% of its full potential in just 20 minutes, thanks to the intelligent charger.

With its Bluetooth connection, the MDM300 connects wirelessly to a PC. This means no more time lost in locating, untangling and plugging in cables. Set-up of the instrument and downloading of logged data is therefore quick and simple.

A number of cost-effective and easily-portable sampling systems are available for the MDM300 to ensure accurate measurements and help prolong the life of the sensor. These range from simple fixed orifices for low pressure measurement all the way to high-quality configurable sampling systems for pressures up to 400 BarG, designed for use in natural gas and other demanding process environments.

To maximize flexibility, measurements can be taken by means of external sensors which are easily connected to the MDM300. These sensors can be used display dew point, pressure or temperature or can be used to provide pressure and temperature compensation to the displayed moisture parameters.
