June 16, 2014 - Michell announces Easidew PRO XP moisture transmitters . This hazardous area transmitter meets the requirements of moisture measurement applications where explosion-proof rather than intrinsically-safe certification is needed. The transmitter is housed in a tough, explosion-proof casing, which is rated NEMA 4. It is certified to CCSAUS, ATEX and IECEx specifications, making it acceptable in hazardous areas world-wide. As with its sister product, the Easidew PRO I.S., the Easidew PRO XP is capable of measuring moisture in both gases and liquids with outputs in dew point or ppm. This versatility makes it an ideal option for systems integrators and others, as they now can stock one moisture meter or hygrometer for all moisture measurement applications in hazardous areas. Typical applications for the Easidew PRO XP include olefins production, oil refining and water dew point during production of compressed, liquefied or pipeline quality natural gas. The transmitter is rated for Class I, Div. 1, Groups A, B, C and D, so it may be used in hydrogen applications as well. The Easidew PRO XP uses the latest ceramic moisture sensing technology from Michell, and is capable of measuring dew points in gases from -110°C to +20°C and 0-3000 ppmV. For dissolved water in liquids the measurement range is from 0-1000 ppmW. With a 450 bar (6527 psi) pressure rating, EN10204 3.1 material certified parts and NIST/NPL 13-point calibration certificate, it meets all the current demands of the processing industries.
