The Model PDM-75 is an acronym for “Portable DewMaster”. It is a portable, multi-function, optical chilled mirror hygrometer designed to accurately measure the moisture content in gases. It offers precision dew point measurement in a robust, transportable carrying case. The PDM-75 uses the chilled mirror (CM) dew point temperature condensation principle to determine the water vapor concentration in gas mixtures, and a precision platinum resistance thermometer to measure the mirror temperature. The CM uses a thermo-electric device to control the temperature of the mirror in determining dew point. Since it is a direct measurement of dew point and thus a Primary Standard Measurement Technique. The PDM-75 is highly regarded by calibration technicians and manufacturing facilities for its portability, accuracy, quick dry down, fast response in detecting upset conditions and long life characteristics.
The PDM-75 may be fitted with a precision air temperature sensor (needed to determine RH), pressure transducer, and a wide range of either local or remote chilled mirror sensors.
Two main types of chilled mirror sensors are available for the PDM-75: the remote mounted D-Probe featuring a two stage air cooled chilled mirror or the S-Series sensor- available in both local and remote mount configurations. Depending on the desired measurement range, the SSeries sensor is available in Two or Three stage chilled mirror configurations. To accommodate different cooling thresholds, the S-Series sensor may be air cooled, fan cooled or liquid cooled. In contrast, the D-Probe is only available as a Two-Stage chilled mirror. But since it is configured as a probe, it may be used in a wide array of applications including ambient air monitoring, insertion into glove boxes, HV AC ducts, environmental test chambers, circulation pipes, refrigerated storage rooms, engine test filter rooms.
