LAUNCHES SIXTH GENERATION ENGINEERING INSTRUMENTATION
Fast accurate measurement of the World’s most damaging contaminant
– and its most beneficial!
Versaperm Limited, a world
leader in water vapour permeability is launching an entirely new instrument
for the fast and accurate measurement of water vapour permeability. Water
is both the world’s most damaging contaminant and its most beneficial
substance. The damage and waste caused by water vapour costs UK business
industry hundreds of millions of pounds a year – yet it can now
be checked with a simple 30 minute measurement.
Seals failing, electronics failing, components rusting, machinery jamming,
pipes clogging are all caused by a simple misunderstanding about water
vapour that is easy to put right.
Water vapour is omnipresent and highly invasive but products and packaging
with inappropriate vapour permeabilities needlessly reduces the active
life and effectiveness of a huge range of products.
The Versaperm WVTR (Water Vapour Transmission) MK VI meters’ highly
automated computerised control can cope with several samples at a time
- and still give a reading in as little as 30 minutes for some materials.
The conventionally gravimetric measurement technique takes several days
and gives significantly less accurate / reproducible results.
The MK VI needs very little re-calibration and requires, at most, minimal
training to give results that can be accurate to better than one part
per million (with some samples a few parts per hundred million). Sensitivities
are typically in the range 0.05 - 3200g/m2/day.
A wide variety of options is
available, depending on the specific applications, but both single and
multi-sample systems, plus a range of measurement chambers and sensors
can be supplied for testing samples from the size of a thimble up to a
pallet load and beyond.
As well as vapour transmission,
the equipment can be used to measure the Equilibrium Relative Humidity
(ERH) of substances - that might otherwise be decomposed by normal water
content measuring techniques. Additionally the instrument can be configured
to measure the diffusion rates of most gaseous elements (water, O2, CO2
The company also operates
a laboratory service to measure permeability for companies where the volume
or logistics of measurements does not demand a dedicated instrument.
