Michell Instruments will showcase its smallest portable dew-point hygrometer, which allows the user to quickly take field moisture measurements, at the upcoming Air Tech event.

The hygrometer measures 21 x 17cm and weighs 1.5kg and has a battery life of up to 48 hours of typical usage.

The company will also display the newest addition to its portable range, the MDM300 I.S, designed for use in hazardous areas.

The MDM300 has an ergonomic design, with all the buttons easily accessible while the instrument is held comfortably in both hands, according to Michell.

All measurement parameters are available at the touch of a button and the password-protected setup menu is said to be simple to navigate and use.

A Bluetooth connection, which comes as standard, facilitates instrument setup and the downloading of logged data.

New developments in the company’s ceramic sensor technology have reduced the response time for low dew points, allowing for more measurements to be taken each day.

External sensors can be connected and used to measure and display pressure and temperature.

These parameters can also be used to provide pressure- and temperature-compensated measurements, improving accuracy and allowing users to choose from a range of measurement parameters.

Michell, which will be found on Stand A3131, will demonstrate the MDM300 and provide advice on dew-point measurement and control in a compressed-air system.

The company, which is a BCAS member, offers a range of dew-point transmitters, online analysers and sampling systems designed to monitor the moisture levels in compressed-air systems.

Its calibration sensor exchange programme is said to ensure continued traceability with minimum maintenance.

Michell Instruments

Michell Instruments is an international leader in high-precision sensing with over 35 years’ experience in the field, specialising in instrumentation for dew point, relative humidity and oxygen analysis. The company serves industries as diverse as petrochemical and pharmaceutical to power generation and food processing. The product range includes:

  • High-precision ceramic moisture sensors to measure trace moisture in process applications.
  • Relative humidity transmitters and sensors for use in HVAC applications, pharmaceutical storage and other production processes where controlled environmental conditions are crucial.
  • Humidity calibration systems and reference dew-point hygrometers enable customers to carry out the calibration of portable hygrometers and relative humidity instruments in-house, saving on downtime and costs.
  • Zirconia and thermo-paramagetic oxygen analysers for combustion optimisation, maintaining gas purity, controlling levels of CO2 in breweries and many other applications.
  • Condumax II Hydrocarbon dew point analysers ensure the quality of natural gas at custody transfer, prevent gas burner failure and the prolong the life of process equipment, helping companies save millions of dollars on repairs and downtime.
  • Trace moisture in hydrocarbon liquids analysers are available in explosion-proof and instrinsically safe versions and allow the continuous measurement of moisture content in a wide range of applications from transformer oil, petrochemical factions and pure hydrocarbons.
  • Process moisture analysers provide continuous on-line measurements of trace moisture in process gases and are available as explosion-proof, instrinsically safe and laboratory versions.

Michell Instruments has three manufacturing locations: Oosterhout, The Netherlands; Lyon, France and Ely, UK. The company has an extensive network of factory-trained application engineers, subsidiaries and distributors stretching across 56 countries.
