Application area

The humidity meter may be used in various industries, such as chemical, petrocemical, gas-processing, fuel-and-energy, metallurgical, as well as in medicine and scientific research.

Operating principle and design

  • The operating principle of K-P micro humidity meters is based on conversion of humidity sensor capacity and temperature sensor resistance into frequency, which is then processed by microcontrollers in the primary converter and the device itself.
  • A capacity type humidity sensor (sorption-capacity sensor) is used to measure dew point.
  • A platinum resistance thermometer is used for adjustment of dew point at different temperatures.
  • -1 humidity meters consist of a measurement and display unit and remote converters connected to the unit by a cable with a terminal. The measurement and display unit is placed into a plastic or metal enclosure.
  • The device is equipped with remote converters of -08 series.
  • -08 converters are designed to work in nonaggressive gas environments.
  • We also produce high pressure converters: -08-01- for pressures up to 160 atm and -08-02- for pressures up to 400 atm.
  • Enclosure types for -08:
  • -08-01/-08-01- models have a metal flow-through enclosure with M8x1 fittings;
  • -08-02/-08-02- models have a metal flow-through enclosure with M16x1.5 fittings;
  • -08-03 model has a submersible enclosure with fittings for sealed connectors (sealed compartments).

Operating requirements

  • 1. Content of mechanical and aggressive impurities (chlorine, sulfur, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, and their compounds) in the ambient and controlled atmosphere must not exceed sanitary standards in accordance with GOST 12.100576 standard and the level of the maximum allowable concentration (for hydrogen sulfide 2S the maximum allowable concentration is 10 mg/m3).
  • 2. The maximum allowable temperature of the converter enclosure and the connecting cable is +60C.

Advantages

  • Plug&Play technology allowing to connect several primary converters of different design to one measurement unit without additional setup;
  • possibility to recalculate the measured micro humidity values into relative humidity, ppm, dew-point temperature in degrees Centigrade (Cdp), mg/m3;
  • adjustment of measured micro humidity taking into account temperature impact (temperature compensation);
  • possibility to recalculate micro humidity values depending on pressure of the analysed gas;
  • possibility to measure micro humidity of gases under pressure: up to 2.5*106 kgf/m2 (25 atm), up to 16*106 kgf/m2 (160 atm), and up to 40*106 kgf/m2 (400 atm);
  • possibility to set the measuring converter at a distance up to 1000 m from the measuring unit;
  • possibility to set two thresholds for sound and light alarms for each measurement channel; crossing of the threshold sets off an indicating and a sound signal;
  • possibility to log measurement results K-P humidity meters support periodic automated real-time recording of measured values into non-volatile memory (over 9,000 measurement points); special software for setup of recording and viewing and saving of data; software and related documentation are delivered on request;
  • PC connection via RS-232;
  • possibility to pool devices into a measurement network and view network parameters using a PC; this option requires special software and certain auxiliary equipment;
  • possibility to equip the humidity meter with gas sample preparation systems of the series.
