Promet EExd Process Moisture Analyzer

Promet EExd Process Moisture Analyzers are hazardous-area rated industrial hygrometer systems for measurement of water vapor content in low and high pressure process gases on natural gas platforms and terminals as well as in petrochemical plants and industrial manufacturing facilities. The Promet EExd is installed directly in the hazardous area, simplifying site installation and retrofits. Promet EExd combines the latest Michell moisture sensing technologies with sample conditioning systems designed to provide a reliable and easy-to-operate, multi-channel, on-line instrument for moisture measurement in flammable gases.
