Railways Dew Point Monitoring
Pneumatic systems in railway applications are vulnerable to water condensation as a result of the cooling of compressed air. This water tends to cause corrosion, degrade lubricants and freeze in cold weather, causing malfunction and damages in brake systems and other pneumatic devices as well as pneumatic components (cylinders, valves). For this reason regular measurement of dew point is essential.
Sigma provides a user friendly handheld dew point meter for these measurements, as well as dew point sensors for fixed installations and increased operational safety.
