It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity

It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity

Anyone who has visited a tropical climate can attest that the weather is hot.  When a person is in such a place and drenched in sweat, he or she will invariably pant, “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity.”  The base temperature is not the only factor that plays a part in understanding a given environment.  Humidity and air moisture in general can have a huge effect on humans, animals, and equipment.  Ensuring that humidity is carefully monitored can be a critical part of any industry.

Chambers – SRP Control offers a number of devices that create a contained and controlled space where the humidity can be adjusted to simulate very specific conditions.  These can be used to conduct stability studies and package testing.  Companies will check for vapor transmission and durability in particular environments as well.  Biotech companies and textile companies often use our larger controlled chambers to research the effect of humidity on both biological samples and types of fabric.  Because companies today must think globally, they must be prepared for their products to be used in any environment.

Transmitters and Sensors – To gauge humidity rather than control it, SRP Control has many different types of sensors and transmitters that can measure humidity in a given environment.  They can meet a variety of standards for both environmental conditions and the desired type of output display.

Moisture Analyzers – These can analyze the moisture of a given substance to a precise degree.  It determines the dry mass and consistency.  It’s mostly used in the private sector to gauge woods, adhesives, and dusts during production.

The range of products offered through SRP Control extends to devices that can measure even trace amounts of moisture.  There are even gauges that can measure dew point.  Needless to say, there are a number of reasons that humidity may play a role in your manufacturing process, so you want to ensure that you are measuring it precisely.
