Metrology for humidity at high temperatures and transient conditions

    Project: EU project

    Project Details


    Accurate humidity measurements at high temperatures for industry.

    Humidity is a key parameter in controlling industrial drying processes. The quality of humidity measurements affects productivity through energy and material efficiency.

    Project aims to improve the accuracy of industrial humidity measurements at high temperatures and transient conditions.

    VTT MIKES will develop a field humidity calibrator based on dynamic humidity and procedures for humidity calibration in transient conditions.
