Dew points as low as -70°C can now be measured accurately in less than 10 minutes.
Michell Instruments´ MDM300 advanced dew-point hygrometer can save engineers weeks of waiting time
Recent research into the operation of Michell Instruments´ ceramic sensor technology has helped the
MDM300 provide faster measurements. This super-fast response does not rely on the sensor being dried by
a desiccant, which means that every measurement is fast – not just the first of the day – allowing for many
more measurements to be taken each day.
However, this is not the only way in which the MDM300 cuts out waiting. Efficient nickel metal hydride
batteries and power management circuitry provide the user with 48 hours of use between charges – giving
much more time in the field making measurements. In addition a flat battery can be recharged to 90% of its
full potential in just 20 minutes, thanks to the intelligent charger.
With its Bluetooth connection, the MDM300 connects wirelessly to a PC. This means no more time lost in
locating, untangling and plugging in cables. Set-up of the instrument and downloading of logged data is
therefore quick and simple.
A number of cost-effective and easily-portable sampling systems are available for the MDM300 to ensure
accurate measurements and help prolong the life of the sensor. These range from simple fixed orifices for
low pressure measurement all the way to high-quality configurable sampling systems for pressures up to 400
BarG, designed for use in natural gas and other demanding process environments.
To maximize flexibility, measurements can be taken by means of external sensors which are easily
connected to the MDM300. These sensors can be used display dew point, pressure or temperature or can
be used to provide pressure and temperature compensation to the displayed moisture parameters.
