MEECO Aids Solar Industry with a Revolutionary Moisture Monitor

The Compact M-i(TM) to be Unveiled at Intersolar North America

WARRINGTON, Pa. - MEECO Inc., attuned to the mounting demand for clean solar-grade gas, today announced that it will introduce its new M-i moisture monitor at the Intersolar trade show in San Francisco. The world's first mini P2O5-based moisture monitor, the M-i is the world's smallest, lowest-cost absolute moisture monitor, offering proven stability, precision, and repeatability.

A breakthrough in mini-sensors, the M-i packs high-powered clean technology into a small, innovative and affordable package. Designed for fixed gas applications, the M-i measures an ideal range of 500 ppb (parts-per-billion) to 1000 ppm (parts-per million). Utilizing MEECO's proven electrolytic technology, the new device is palm-sized and provides continuous, no-drift, on-line moisture analysis at a very low cost (under $2,000).

Renowned for reliability and innovation, MEECO has manufactured durable, high-quality gas analyzers for industry since the company's founding in 1948. The company helped the natural gas industry with the invention in 1959 of a portable moisture analyzer for field technicians, eventually selling more than 10,000 of its "NEP" analyzers.

MEECO addressed the needs of the burgeoning semiconductor industry in 1987 by introducing the world's first ppb moisture analyzer for ultra-pure electronic gases used by semiconductor fabricators. Since that time, the company has designed a series of innovative products for the natural and industrial gas industries and ranks as a leading supplier to the semiconductor market worldwide.

In the same pioneering spirit, MEECO has designed its newest analyzer with the solar industry in mind. MEECO will be exhibiting at Intersolar North America 2010 in San Francisco's Moscone Center West Hall from July 13-15, booth number 8354. The M-i will be on display at the MEECO booth.


MEECO Inc. manufactures analytical equipment for the semiconductor, chemical, and industrial and natural gas industries. Founded in 1948 as the Manufacturers Engineering and Equipment Co., the company was an early pioneer of instruments to measure trace moisture in solids, natural gas, and industrial specialty gases. MEECO is now a leading supplier of moisture analyzers to global markets. For additional information, visit
