High pressure humidity calibration

Michell_Instruments.jpgMICHELL INSTRUMENTS Research has reported significant progress in its project with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to improve the current high-pressure dew-point generator technology.

Michell scientists are co-operating on the project with the NPL, which provides scientific consultancy and assessment services. The project is funded by the UK Technology Strategy Board. The aim of the work is to enable calibrations of water and hydrocarbon dew point to be made at line pressure, outside of national metrology institutes.

The research efforts have particular implications for the natural gas industry, especially for pipeline operators, as the ability to perform at-pressure calibrations for both water and hydrocarbon dew point will improve confidence in the measurement of these two gas quality parameters at custody transfer of transmissions pipelines.
