Unique New Transmitter Combines Dewpoint and Pressure Measurements in Compressed Air Applications

HELSINKI, FINLAND--(Marketwire - Sep 29, 2011) - Vaisala introduces a unique innovation for simple and convenient dewpoint and pressure monitoring in compressed air applications. The Vaisala Dewpoint and Pressure Transmitter DPT146 for Compressed Air is the first transmitter on the market that monitors both dewpoint and process pressure simultaneously, creating the ideal tool for anyone in need of high quality compressed air.

For the first time, dewpoint data is constantly pressure compensated online and in real-time, which means that separate conversions are no longer needed to take possible changes in pressure into account. It also means that no ambiguity exists in the information, making the data reliable and accurate, and consequently, enabling more informative decision making and timely corrective actions. Regulative requirements, for example for medical gas, can also be fulfilled quickly and conveniently.

Furthermore, as one single transmitter provides two of the most important measurements for compressed air applications simultaneously, installation costs can be reduced and setup and maintenance is simple and efficient.

The DPT146 complements Vaisala's broad offering for compressed air monitoring. The new transmitter brings together Vaisala's extensive technological expertise in sensor-technology development by combining two sensor technologies -- the Vaisala DRYCAP® and Vaisala BAROCAP® -- that have been proven accurate and stable in a variety of dewpoint and pressure measurements over more than 20 years.

Vaisala is a global leader in environmental and industrial measurement. Building on 75 years of experience, Vaisala contributes to a better quality of life by providing a comprehensive range of innovative observation and measurement products and services for meteorology, weather critical operations and controlled environments.
