No one has the time to attend to all of the factors involved in maintaining the desired humidity conditions inside an enclosed environment. Therefore, you need a nitrogen control system that will automatically regulate the gas purge to compensate for such operating variables as the size and condiion of the chamber, the frequency and duration of access, and changing ambient humidity levels.
The DewWatch™ meets these monitoring/control requirements—economically and reliably.
The extreme sensitivity and precision of the DewWatch™ makes it suitable for your most demanding applications. It operates over the -80 to +20 degree C dew point range, which is equivalent to 0.5 PPMV to 23,000 PPMV in gases at 1 atmosphere.
In glove box applications, the DewWatch™ performs a dual function. The LED display provides a continuous readout of the dew/frost point inside the chamber in whichever scale range you order (see specifications below). More importantly, it operates with the Dual Purge™ System to precisely control the flow of nitrogen into the enclosure and maintain a preset dew point.
All you have to do is find out from your supplier or process engineer exactly what dew point you need to maintain, set the desired level , interface the unit with Terra's Dual Purge™ System and then let it do its job. The unit's quick response sensor, when properly installed inside the chamber, will deliver a quick readout of the internal dew point. The controller will allow the Dual Purge™ System to adjust the nitrogen flow to maintain this desired dew point within 2 degrees C (3 degrees C in the -80 to -65 degree C range) no matter how operating or ambient conditions may change.
Each DewWatch™ unit is individually calibrated and consists of a control unit and a humidity sensor.
