Can we help you?

The MM70 is an ideal tool for the preventive maintenance of oil-filled systems.

The water activity measurement indicates the margin to free water formation, which causes severe problems in lubrifications systems. The HUMICAP handheld moisture meter for oil MM70 enables reliable detection of moisture in oil. 

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS

Measurement independent of oil type, age and temperature

In-line process checking through ball valve, no need to drain the oil

Rugged and reliable construction

Excellent pressure and temperature tolerance

Data can be logged and transferred to a PC

Vaisala HUMICAP Sensor - proven field performance since 1973

Compatible with Vaisala's fixed oil moisture instruments

Temporary outdoor logging possible with carrying case

No reference oil needed for recalibration

 

IN-LINE PROCESS CHECKING THROUGH BALL VALVE

The probe can be inserted directly into the process pipe through a ball valve without draining the oil in the system.

 

WATER ACTIVITY MEASUREMENT

The MM70 measures moisture in oil in terms of the water activity (aw) and temperature (T). Water activity directly indicates whether there is a risk of free water formation. The measurement is independent of oil type, age and temperature.

 

NUMERICAL AND GRAPHICAL DISPLAY

The MM70 features a multilingual, menu-based user interface and a backlit LCD display. The measurement parameters can be numerically and graphically displayed and logged into the meter's memory at the same time. An analog output option is also available.

 

CONNECTION TO PC

The optional MI70 Link Windows software is used to transfer logged data and real time measurement data from the MM70 to a PC.

 

PROVEN VAISALA HUMICAP TECHNOLOGY

The MM70 incorporates the latest generation of the Vaisala HUMICAP Sensor, developed for demanding moisture measurements in liquid hydrocarbons. The sensor's excellent chemical tolerance provides accurate and reliable measurement over the measurement range.

 

SPEEDY SERVICE - ONCE A YEAR

The meter can be recalibrated by sending the probe to Vaisala Service, or customers can calibrate the instrument themselves using a standard relative humidity calibration.

 

MULTI-PROBE OPERATION

One or two probes can be connected simultaneously. Maintenance teams can use additional Vaisala dewpoint or relative humidity probes for other tasks. For example, a dewpoint probe is ideal for checking the moisture inside washed and dried oil tanks.
