The GE Panametrics aluminum oxide MIS Probe 2 has set the standard of performance and value in industrial moisture measurement for more than 40 years.
In use, the MIS Probe 2 is coupled to GE hygrometer consoles by an interconnecting cable. Ease of use, wide measurement range and rigorous calibration standards make these systems the preferred choice for industrial moisture measurement worldwide.
Available Built-In Pressure and Temperature Measurement
Accurate determination of many moisture measurement parameters requires knowledge of the process temperature and pressure. The inconvenience and limitations associated with installing and using separate temperature and pressure sensors have been eliminated, with both capabilities being built directly into the Moisture Image Series probe. A nonlinear NTC thermistor to measure temperature from -30 to 70°C (-22 to 158°F) and a choice of five solid-state piezoresistive transducers, to measure pressures up to 5,000 psig (345 bar), are available.
Temperature and pressure input data are used by MIS 1 analyzers and the PM880 portable hygrometer to determine parameters such as ppm, lbs/mmSCF and releative humidity.
Available Rigorous Calibration Traceable to the NIST
The aluminum oxide sensor of each MIS probe 2 is individually calibrated in one fo the world's most advanced moisture calibration facilities. Developed over several decades, this facility generates precisely known moisture concentrations, traceable to the National Institure of Standards and Technology (NIST), to which each sensor is exposed during the calibration process.
All data is gathered and stored by a dedicated computer system. Calibrations are repeated over a period of many months to ensure the stability of each individual moisure probe. Only those probes which meet GE Infrastructure Sensing's demanding specifications for accuracy and stability are shipped to customers.
The MIS Probe 2 is designed to be located at the process, exactly where the measurement is needed. The sensor can withstand process temperatures of -110 to 70°C (166 to 158°F) and pressures from vacuum up to 5,000 psig (345 bar). No minimum flow rate is required. For additional flexibility, the probe can be located up to 3,000 feet (0.9 km) from the analyzer, connected by inexpensive, unshielded, twisted-pair cable (AWG 22). As a result, the probe can be placed in the ideal location, even in a large plant, without the cost, delays and installation problems associated with special cabling.
