Dewpoint Transmitter
 

     Typical Applications

  • Monitoring and control of air dryers
  • Plastic dryers
  • Welding gases
  • Laser gases
  • Petrochemical feedstock gases
  • Natural installations, transportation and distribution
  • Clean rooms
  • Glove boxes
  • Cryogenic gases
  • Heat treating furnaces
  • Industrial specialty gases
 
 

 Features

  • Compact and reliable. Continuously monitors air dryer performance, compressed air quality and dry gas moisture, from ambient dewpoint levels to as low as -148º F (-100º C).
  • The transmitter uses the state of the art microprocessor technology built-in intelligent features.
  • User friendly interface with LCD display and push buttons.
  • User selectable Engineering Units Dewpoint in º C or º F, ppmv,
    g H2O/m3, lbs H2O/ million scf.
  • Pressure correction feature.
  • Field calibration procedure is fully automated and the user is prompted through a simple one minute procedure, which requires no additional equipment.
  • Unit has indication for sensor open, short or electronic system failure, which can activate any of the alarm relays.

 Available Options

  • Alarm relays can be programmed to switch at any dewpoint with variable hysteresis, making it ideal as an energy saving  component in desiccant dryers.
  • The analog current or voltage output can be programmed to span the full or a portion of the range and is linear to the  selected engineering units.
  • The RS-232 interfaces into the serial port of any PC or Mac, for a simple operation with any standard communications  program.
