THE USE OF SHAW MOISTURE METERS IN THAT APPLICATION
The Shaw Sensor is suitable for use with most industrial gases, and usually has a life of several years continuous operation.
There are, however, a few gases which cause problems, and these are listed below, with comments:
- Chlorine even in small quantities as an impurity in other gases, chlorine must be avoided. It will attack the sensor rapidly, and destroy it completely.
- Ammonia is similar to chlorine in its effect on the sensor, and rapid failure will occur. It is useful to note that ammonia causes a blue colouration of the sintered bronze filter.
