Water vapour is omnipresent and, more often than not, causes failure in both electronic and mechanical systems.  No matter if you are at sea or have a failure critical application, the more hi-tech it is, the more important it is to keep even minute traces of water (or sometimes other gases) in or out.  

Permeability specialists Versaperm has introduced a WVTR (Water Vapour Transmission Rate) meter for laboratory and QC, that can test the permeability of a huge range of materials and containers – from foil laminates to electronic enclosures.   It can also provide measurements based on a wide range of other gases including O2 and hydrocarbons and can be used even for materials that might otherwise be decomposed by normal water content measuring techniques.

The Versaperm WVTR meter can cope with several samples at a time and can give a reading in as little as 30 minutes – whereas the conventionally gravimetric measurement technique takes several days and is significantly less accurate.

The WVTR meter is simple to use and gives a series of digital readouts that can be recorded or simply read off the LCD screen.  It needs no re-calibration and requires, at most, minimal training to give accurate, repeatable and reliable results.
