Efficient temperature and humidity control is important for the optimal functioning of IT infrastructure. In many modern facilities 99.999% uptime is expected; representing annual downtime of just a few minutes. These extremely high levels of performance are necessary because of the importance and value of the data and processes being handled by the IT infrastructure.
Moisture is a known contaminant in a wide variety of applications and processes, but the presence of moisture in industrial use oil can be particularly detrimental. Affecting the quality and performance of the oil, water is known to increase viscosity and cavitation. It also degrades additives and film strength and presents the opportunity for biological contamination and corrosion.
The high-accuracy immersion temperature transmitter TMI110 is designed for measuring cooling/heating water temperatures in HVAC automation
Vaisala expands its modular Indigo product family with the introduction of the streamlined Indigo510 transmitter
The new Indigo510 is the latest addition to Vaisala’s top-of-the-line Indigo transmitter family, all of which are compatible with Vaisala’s industry-leading Indigo measurement probes. The Indigo510 builds on the same modular platform and includes the same metal casing, software, and display as the flagship Vaisala Indigo520 Transmitter. Indigo510 is available also without a display.
Drying is an absolute necessity to prepare polyesters for molding. Polyesters and other polycondensation polymers can absorb moisture from the air. If pellets are not dried, the moisture will react with the molten polymer at processing temperatures, resulting in a loss of molecular weight. This loss leads to lowered physical properties such as reduced tensile and impact strengths. Therefore desiccant dryers must be used to dry the pellets prior to processing in an injection molding...
Increasing demand for data processing and storage capacity has led to major companies investing in new facilities that provide web-based services to an ever-higher number of users. In these facilities, having the correct conditions – such as temperature and humidity – is vital for maintaining the equipment and securing operations.
Vaisala products are renowned for their unrivaled performance, reliable results, and low total cost of ownership. They also have an exceptionally long lifetime and excellent measurement stability. Because we are so confident in the lasting quality and long lifetime of our measurement instruments, we have extended the warranty period from two to five years for selected HVAC transmitters.
Many of Vaisala’s products and systems provide a major contribution in the fight against diseases, and in the following article we outline some of the ways that our measurement technologies are helping to end the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dew point temperature is a useful parameter in many industrial humidity applications. It is often used to measure dryness in applications such as plastics and compressed-air drying , where the relative humidity is typically below 10%RH. It is an industrial de facto to call these types of low humidity instruments as dew point meters. This is an ideal application area for Vaisala DRYCAP® technology.
