Moisture in Instrument Air

Application

Advantages

Moisture is measured in instrument air.

Close moisture control resulting from the permanent


installation of a GE Industrial Sensing hygrometer has
reduced the need for major repairs of delicate inprocess instrumentation.

Equipment
Background

Any microprocessor-based GE Industrial Sensing


hygrometer with compatible moisture sensors can be
used. Pressure sensor input is optional.

The presence of moisture in air, used as a blanketing


gas for sensitive instruments, causes corrosion
problems, rapid change of calibrations, and loss of
instrument sensitivity.
No quality control procedures were in effect prior to
the installation of a GE Industrial Sensing hygrometer.

Installation
Multiple sensors are attached to the sources of the
instrument air. The sensors are mounted in standard
instrument air sample systems for installation
convenience. The alarm system sounds when the dew
point exceeds a predetermined level.
