Why Use a Heated Hygrometer?

When the dew point temperature of a sampled gas is at a higher temperature than that of the sensing system, a condition of saturation or 100% Relative Humidity will occur within the sensing system. This causes liquid water to form within the tubing…

Humidity Definitions - Part 3

Parts Per Million by Weight (PPMw)Parts per million by weight of dry gas (PPMw) is identical to PPMv except that the weight ratio changes with the molecular weight of the carrier gas.Example 1. If the frost point = -60°C and the carrier gas is…

Humidity Definitions - Part 2

Relative Humidity (RH)Relative humidity (RH) is the ratio of the actual vapor pressure (Pw) in the gas mixture to the saturation vapor pressure (Pws), with respect to water, at the prevailing dry bulb temperature. Relative humidity is expressed as a…

Humidity Definitions - Part 1

Dalton's Law (Pm)John Dalton was first to surmise that the total pressure (Pm) exerted by a mixture of gases or vapors is the sum of the pressures of each gas if it were to occupy the same volume by itself. The pressure which each gas exerts is called…

How Dewpoint is Affected by Pressure

Dewpoint is a measurement of water vapor concentration. Water vapor, or more simply “moisture”, can be a major contaminant in process gases ranging from compressed air, to purified cylinder gases, to hydrocarbon gases, to natural gas, and many others.…
