Introduction The GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. Moisture Monitor Series 3 is a


one- or two-channel analyzer designed to measure dissolved moisture
concentration in gases and non-aqueous liquids, and dissolved
oxygen concentration in gases.

A microprocessor-based instrument, the Series 3 combines hardware


and software to make various measurements. The user connects the
needed inputs (moisture probes, pressure transmitters, oxygen cells,
etc.) to the back panel of the electronics unit using the appropriate
cables. Typically, the user installs moisture probes and oxygen cells
into the process using a sample system that is specifically designed
for the application. The sample system delivers a sample of the
process gas or liquid to the probes. The probes then send signals to
the Series 3 electronics unit, which interprets the signals and converts
them into measurements.

Users typically install the Series 3 as part of a complex process


system, which includes components such as filters, pumps, and
pressure regulators. In such an environment, probes and other parts of
the system may be subjected to environmental hazards, such as high
temperature, pressure extremes, corrosive elements, and mechanical
vibrations.

!WARNING!
To ensure the safe operation of this unit, you must install
and operate the Series 3 as described in this manual. In
addition, be sure to follow all applicable safety codes and
regulations for installing electrical equipment in your area.

Unpacking the Series 3 Upon receipt, unpack the Series 3 and make sure all the parts and
documentation listed on the packing slip are included. The packing
slip may not list the Calibration Data Sheet(s), which are usually
packed in the plastic storage case with the moisture, oxygen, and
pressure probes. You may also find the Calibration Data Sheet(s) in
an envelope taped to the Series 3. There should be one Calibration
Data Sheet for each probe.

Be sure to inspect each component, including the sample system, for


evidence of mishandling. If anything has been damaged, report this to
the carrier and to GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. immediately. You
should leave the plastic caps on the probes and the pressure
transmitters when they are not installed in the process stream. If
anything is missing, contact GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc.
immediately.

Checking the Delta F Before connecting the Delta F Oxygen Cell(s), you must check it for
Oxygen Cell for Leakage damage and/or leakage. Depending on the application, the oxygen
cell may have a top drain or both a top and bottom drain for the
electrolyte reservoir. It is important to identify your cell for the
following procedure. Use Figure 1-1 below to identify your cell.

1. Remove the top of the electrolyte reservoir.


IMPORTANT: If your cell also has a bottom drain, make sure that
the electrolyte discharge valve, mounted on the rear
of the oxygen cell, is closed (in the vertical position).
See Figure 1-1 below.
2. Add approximately three ounces (100 ml) of distilled water to the
reservoir and replace the top.
3. Using the min/max window (see Figure 1-2 on the next page) on
the oxygen cell, check the water level. The water should cover
about 60% of the window.

suitable for most indoor installations, as well as weatherproof and
explosion-proof configurations. See the drawings at the end of this
chapter for an example of each enclosure.

You should have discussed environmental and installation factors


with an applications engineer or field sales person by the time you
receive the Series 3. The equipment should be suited to the
application and installation site.

Before installing the unit, read the guidelines below to verify that you
have selected the best installation site.

IMPORTANT: For compliance with the EU’s Low Voltage Directive


(IEC 1010), this unit requires an external power
disconnect device. The disconnect device for this unit
is its power cord.

General Information 1-3


August 2004

Choosing a Site (cont.) !WARNING!


Division 2 applications may require special installation.
Consult the National Electric Code
and/or the Canadian Electrical Code for proper installation
requirements. The analyzer must be configured in a
suitable equipment enclosure and installed according to
the sections of the National Electric Code, Article 500, and
Canadian Electrical Code, Section 18, that pertain to the
hazardous environment classification in which the
electronics will be used.

• Choose an installation site for the probes and sample systems that
is as close to the process line as possible. Avoid long runs of
connecting tubing. If long distances are unavoidable, a fast
sampling by-pass loop is recommended. Do not install any other
components, such as filters, ahead of the probes or sample system
unless instructed by GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. to do so.
• Observe all normal safety precautions. Use probes within their
maximum pressure and temperature ratings.
• Although the Series 3 may not need to be accessed during normal
operation, install the electronics unit at a convenient location for
programming, testing and servicing. A control room or instrument
shed are typical locations.
• Locate the electronics unit away from high temperatures, strong
electrical transients, mechanical vibrations, corrosive atmospheres,
and any other conditions that could damage or interfere with the
Series 3 operation.
• Protect the probe cables from excessive physical strain (bending,
pulling, twisting, etc.). In addition, do not subject the cables to
temperatures above 65°C (149°F) or below –50°C (–58°F).
• Observe the proper cable restrictions for the probes as follows:

• The M Series and TF Series probes require specially shielded


cable. You can locate the M and TF probes up to 600 m (2,000
ft) from the Series 3. If you are measuring pressure with a TF
probe, the cable length should not exceed 152 m (500 ft).
• The Delta-F Oxygen Cell uses a four-wire shielded cable 22
AWG). Cells with a range from 0 to 1/10/100 ppmv or 0 to 0.5/
5/50 ppmv can be located up to 15 m (50 ft) away. All other
cells can be located up to 91 m (300 ft) away.

Consult GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. for remote location of the


oxygen cell and cable restrictions for other sensors.

Moisture/Temperature The M Series and TF Series probes consist of an aluminum oxide


Probe Considerations sensor mounted on a connector head. Standard probe mounts include
a protective stainless-steel shield.

The probe sensor materials and housing maximize durability and


insure a minimum of water-adsorbing surfaces in the vicinity of the
aluminum oxide surface. A sintered stainless-steel shield is used to
protect the sensor from high flow rates and particulate matter. The
shield should not be removed except upon advice from GE
Infrastructure Sensing, Inc..

The sensor has been designed to withstand normal shock and


vibration. You should make sure that the active sensor surface is
never touched or allowed to come into direct contact with foreign
objects, since this may adversely affect performance.

Observing these few simple precautions will result in a long and


useful probe life. GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. recommends that
probe calibration be checked routinely, at 6-month intervals, or as
recommended by our applications engineers for your particular
application.

The probe will measure the water vapor pressure in its immediate
vicinity; therefore, readings will be influenced by its proximity to the
system walls, materials of construction, and other environmental
factors. The sensor can be operated under vacuum or pressure,
flowing or static conditions.

Observe the environmental precautions noted on the next page.

General Information 1-5


August 2004

Temperature Range The standard probe is operable from –110°C to +70°C (–166°F to
158°F).

Moisture Condensation Be sure the temperature is at least 10°C (18°F) higher than the dew/
frost point temperature. If this condition is not maintained, moisture
condensation could occur on the sensor or in the sample system,
which will cause reading errors. If this happens, dry out the probe
following the procedures outlined in Chapter 3.

Static or Dynamic Use The sensor performs equally well in still air or where considerable
flow occurs. Its small size makes it ideal for measuring moisture
conditions within completely sealed containers or dry boxes. It will
also perform well under gas flow conditions as high as 10,000 cm/sec
and liquid flow conditions to 10 cm/sec. Refer to Table 1-1 below and
Table 1-2 on the next page for maximum flow rates in gases and
liquids.

Table 1-1: Maximum Gas Flow Rates


Based on the physical characteristics of air at a temperature of
77°F and a pressure of 1 atm, the following flow rates will

Pressure The moisture probe always senses the correct water vapor pressure
regardless of total ambient pressure. The moisture sensor measures
water vapor under vacuum or high pressure conditions from as little
as 5 µm Hg to as high as 5,000 psi total pressure.

Long-Term Storage & Sensors are not affected by continuous abrupt humidity changes or
Operational Stability damaged by exposure to saturation conditions even when stored.
However, you should store probes in their original shipping container
in a clean, dry location. If the probe is saturated during storage, refer
to Moisture Condensation on later in this chapter before installing the
probe. For best performance, do not store probes longer than one to
two years from their calibration date.

Freedom from The sensor is completely unaffected by the presence of a wide variety
Interference of gases or organic liquids. Large concentrations of hydrocarbon
gases, Freon®, ozone, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and
hydrogen have no effect on sensor water vapor indications. The
sensor will operate properly in a multitude of gaseous or non-
conductive liquid environments.

Corrosive Materials Avoid all materials that are corrosive or otherwise damaging to
aluminum or aluminum oxide. These include strongly acidic or basic
materials and primary amines.

General Information 1-7


August 2004

Sample System A sample system is required for oxygen measurement and, although
Guidelines not mandatory, is highly recommended for moisture measurement.
The purpose of a sample system is to condition or control a sample
stream to within the specifications of a probe. The application
requirements determine the design of the sample system. GE
Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. applications engineers will make
recommendations based on the following general guidelines.

Moisture Sample Systems Typically, sample systems should contain as few components as
possible and all or most of those components should be located
downstream of the measurement probe. Figure 1-4 below shows an
example of a basic sample system consisting of an explosion-proof
housing with a sample cell, a filter, a flow meter, a vent valve and
two-shut off valves, one at the inlet and one at the outlet.

The sample system components should not be made of any material


that will affect measurements. A sample system may include a filter
to remove particulates from the sample stream or a pressure regulator
to reduce or control the pressure of the stream. However, most
common filters and pressure regulators are not suitable for sample
systems because they have wetted parts that may absorb or release
components (such as moisture) into the sample stream. They may also
allow ambient contamination to enter the sample stream. In general,
you should use stainless steel material for all wetted parts.

Oxygen Sample Systems Oxygen sample systems are required and can be be ordered from GE
Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. for bench or wall mounting, or you can
build your own sample system by using the following guidelines.

IMPORTANT: The GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. warranty is void,


if the sample system does not have a relief valve.

The basic sample system requirements are (see Figure 1-5 below):

1. The oxygen cell requires a sample gas flow of 2.0 to 2.5 SCFH.
2. The sample gas pressure in the cell must be between 0.0 and 1.0
psig. The pressure must not exceed 1.0 psig.
3. A 10 psig pressure relief valve installed upstream of the oxygen
cell is required to prevent over-pressure.
4. A flow meter is required to measure the flow.
5. A pressure gauge is required to measure the pressure.
6. A flow regulating or needle valve is required to regulate flow and
should be located upstream of the cell.
7. A pressure regulator is required for sample gas supplies of 50 psig
or greater.
If a sample pump is required to draw a sample to the oxygen cell, the
pump should be installed downstream of the oxygen cell. This will
also require you to install a vacuum relief valve set at 1.0 psig
between the oxygen cell and the pump.

Mounting the Mounting the hygrometer system consists of mounting the electronics
Hygrometer System unit, the probes, and the sample system(s). Refer to Figures 2-14 to 2-
16 on pages 2-19 to 2-21 for the dimensions of your unit.

Mounting the Electronics Use the outline and dimension drawings at the end of this chapter to
Unit mount the Series 3. These drawings provide clearance and other
mounting dimensions needed to prepare the site for mounting.

IMPORTANT: For compliance with the EU’s Low Voltage Directive


(IEC 1010), this unit requires an external power
disconnect device such as a switch or circuit breaker.
The disconnect device must be marked as such,
clearly visible, directly accessible, and located
within 1.8 m (6 ft) of the Series 3. The power cord is
the main disconnect device.

Be sure to follow the guidelines outlined in Choosing a Site in


Chapter 1 before mounting the enclosure.

Note: You may want to make probe, Delta F Oxygen Cell, recorder,
and alarm connections before mounting the enclosure, if the
installation location does not provide enough room for these
connections to be made easily after installation.

Mounting the Sample The sample system is normally fastened to a metal plate that has four
System mounting holes. GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. also provides the
sample system in an enclosure if requested. In either case, mount the
sample system plate or enclosure with four bolts — one in each
corner. If you ordered sample system outline and dimensions
drawings, they will be included in your shipment.

Connect the sample system inlet/outlet to the process/return using the


appropriate fittings or an appropriate NPT adapter.

Caution!
Do not start a flow through the system until all probes and
transmitters are properly installed.

Mounting the Oxygen Cell If your oxygen cell is not mounted into a sample system, refer to
Assembly Figure 2-18 on page 2-23 to mount the cell.

Installation 2-1
August 2004

Installing the Probes After you mount the sample system you must insert moisture probes
into the sample cells. In addition, you must check, prepare, and
connect oxygen cells (if used) to the gas line.

Moisture Probes GE Infrastructure Sensing M Series and TF Series moisture probes


have 3/4-16 straight threads with an o-ring to secure the probes into
the sample system or directly into the process line.

Caution!
If mounting the moisture probes directly into the process
line, you must consult the factory for proper installation
instructions and precautions.

Moisture probes are usually installed into a sample system to protect


the probes from coming into contact with damaging elements in the
process. The sample system includes a sample cell (see Figure 2-1
below) for mounting the moisture probe. For easy identification, the
sample cell is labeled on the sample system plate. To install a
moisture probe in the sample cell, insert it so that the probe is
perpendicular to the sample inlet. Screw the probe into the cell,
making sure not to cross thread it, and tighten it securely.

Probe

Inlet Sample Cell

Outlet
Figure 2-1: Moisture Probe Installed in Sample Cell

Note: Standard moisture probes have a sintered stainless-steel


shield that protects the aluminum oxide sensor. Leave the
shield in place for maximum protection.

IMPORTANT: You must eliminate all leaks for safety reasons and to
be sure that measurements are not affected by
ambient contamination. For gas applications, you
should check for leaks using a soap bubble solution.

2-2 Installation
August 2004

Pressure Sensor If a pressure measurement is required, and for some reason the TF
probe pressure option is not used, you can connect a separate pressure
sensor to an auxiliary input. The Series 3 uses any type of 0/4 to 20
mA or a 0 to 2 V pressure transducer or transmitter. GE Infrastructure
Sensing, Inc. offers two types of pressure transmitters: the P40 and
P40X. The P40 has a 1/4-inch threaded NPTM fitting and the P40X
has a 1/2-inch threaded NPTF fitting for mounting directly into the
process line or into a sample system.

Caution!
If mounting the pressure transmitters directly into the
process line, consult the factory for proper installation
instructions and precautions.

Always mount the pressure transmitter directly downstream of the


moisture probe to measure the pressure as close as possible to the
point of the moisture measurement.

Delta F Oxygen Cell Although the Series 3 can use other oxygen devices as auxiliary
inputs, it is designed to accept oxygen inputs directly from the Delta
F Oxygen Cell. There are three steps for installing the Delta F Oxygen
Cell: preparing the oxygen cell for operation, calibrating the oxygen
cell, and then connecting the cell to the gas line.

The Delta F Oxygen Cell is available in various enclosure types;


however, the cell itself looks like either of the cells shown in Figure
2-2 below. The oxygen cell may have both a bottom and top drain or
only a top drain.

Bottom/Top Drain Top Drain


Figure 2-2: Delta F Oxygen Cell Drains

Installation 2-3
August 2004

Preparing the Oxygen Cell Prepare the oxygen cell for operation by filling it with the electrolyte
that has been supplied in a plastic bottle (see Figure 2-3 below).

!WARNING!
The electrolyte contains potassium hydroxide, which is
harmful if it comes in contact with eyes or skin. Consult
your company safety personnel for proper procedures for
handling the electrolyte.

1. Unscrew the top on the reservoir. If you are using an explosion-


proof or bottom-top drain cell, make sure the electrolyte discharge
valve is in the vertical (closed) position.

Electrolyte Level

Bottom Drain
Electrolyte Discharge Valve
(in vertical, closed position)

2. Slowly add the entire contents of the bottle, approximately three


ounces (90 ml), making sure not to spill any on the outside of the
cell. Be especially careful that the electrolyte does not come in
contact with any of the cell’s electrical connections.
3. Using the min/max window on the oxygen cell, check the
electrolyte level. The electrolyte should cover about 60% of the
window. The cell is now ready to be connected to the gas line.
4. Replace the top cover of the oxygen cell.
Note: DO NOT add additional electrolyte to the reservoir. If the
level falls below the minimum level,see page 4-4 for
instructions on electrolyte maintenance.
5. Calibrate the oxygen cell as described on page 4-4. After you
calibrate the cell, connect it to the gas line as described in the
following section.
Note: Oxygen cells are calibrated using nitrogen. If you plan to use
your cell with a gas other than nitrogen, you must enter a
current multiplier as described on page 4-7.

2-4 Installation
August 2004

Connecting the Oxygen To connect the oxygen sample system to the process line, attach 1/8”
Sample System to the Gas tubing to the sample gas inlet fitting using a Swagelok® or equivalent
Line mating connector. Avoid using plastic or rubber for any tubing or
fittings that are included in the inlet gas lines.

Caution!
Do not connect the oxygen cell outlet to flow restricting
devices, pressure lines, or vacuum lines. Pressure
differentials across the cell sensor in excess of 1 psig
could damage the cell.

If the sample gas is not a safety hazard, vent it to atmosphere at the


sample system outlet. If venting the gas to atmosphere causes a safety
hazard, vent the gas to a safe location. Make sure the venting system
does not create a back pressure for the oxygen cell.

Note: The vented sample will not be corrosive if you install and
operate the oxygen cell properly.

Making Basic Electrical !WARNING!


Connections To ensure the safe operation of this unit, you must install
and operate the Series 3 as described in this manual. In

separated into two sections, one for each channel. Make connections
by placing the press lock lever into the desired terminal (one press-
lock lever is supplied with each terminal block). Press and hold the
lever against the terminal block and insert the stripped and tinned
portion of the wire into the terminal. Then, release the lever to secure
the connection.

IMPORTANT: To maintain good contact at each terminal block and


to avoid damaging the pins on the connector, pull the
connector straight off (not at an angle), make cable
connections while the connector is away from the
unit, and push the connector straight on (not at an
angle) when the wiring is complete.

Proper connections and cabling are extremely important for accurate


measurements. Be sure to use the correct cable type for each probe,
and make sure that the cables are not damaged during installation. If
you are not using a factory-supplied cable, or you are using a
modified cable, read the following section carefully.

Connecting Moisture GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. manufactures a variety of moisture


Probes probes for the Series 3. The most commonly used are the M Series
and TF Series. If you ordered one or more of these probe types, the
probe setup data has been entered on a preassigned channel. Channel
designations and probe serial numbers are listed on the Calibration
Data Sheet that is shipped with each probe. The serial number is also
engraved on the probe hex nut, as shown in Figure 2-5 below.

Probe Serial Number

Figure 2-5: Moisture Probe Serial Number

M Series Probes M Series probes are primarily used for moisture measurement, but
they can be also equipped with an optional thermistor to measure
temperature. The optional temperature thermistor is included in the
moisture probe and requires an additional connection.

The M Series Probe is connected with a four-wire shielded cable


having a bayonet-type connector and a length of up to 600 m (2,000
ft). Consult the factory for longer cables. Before making the electrical
connections, connect the cable to the probe by inserting the bayonet-
type connector onto the probe and twisting the shell clockwise until it
snaps into a locked position (approximately 1/8 of a turn). If you are
not using a factory-supplied cable, refer to Figure 2-6 below to make
proper pin connections to a bayonet-type connector.

Establishing a Gas Flow Caution!


Through the Oxygen Cell Establish a gas sample flow before you power up the
Series 3 or damage may occur to the oxygen cell.

If you are using an oxygen cell, you must establish a gas flow through
the cell before powering up (if you are not using an oxygen cell,
proceed directly to the Startup Procedure on page 3-1). The oxygen
cell requires a flow rate of 2-2.5 SCFH through the cell, and the
oxygen cell inlet pressure should be 0.2-1.0 psig. Refer to Figure 2-11
below when establishing a gas sample flow.

should vent to atmosphere.

Figure 2-11: Gas Flow Schematic

Caution!
Do not operate the Delta F oxygen cell for extended
periods of time at oxygen concentrations that are over
range. Trace and low percent range sensors may be
damaged if exposed to high levels of oxygen, such as air,
for long periods (>1 hour) while the Series 3 is on. If
exposure is unavoidable, either disconnect the oxygen cell
from the Series 3 or equip the sample system with a valve
that allows the cell to be switched to purge gas.

2-14 Installation
August 2004

Establishing a Gas Flow To establish the gas flow, complete the following steps:
Through the Oxygen Cell
(cont.) 1. Close the flow control valve and adjust the upstream pressure as
required. GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. recommends about 2-10
psig upstream of the flow control valve, depending on the type of
valve installed in the sample system.
2. To safeguard against over-pressurizing the oxygen cell, install a
relief valve rated at 10 psig into the gas flow system. If the
pressure exceeds 10 psig, the relief valve will open; therefore,
there should be no restrictions downstream of the oxygen cell. Use
1/4-inch tubing or larger on the oxygen cell outlet and relief valve
outlet. Both outlets should vent to atmosphere if possible.

Caution!
Do not connect the relief valve and oxygen cell outlet to a
common outlet line smaller than 1/4 inch. This pressure
restriction will damage the oxygen cell. In addition, a relief
valve should be installed in the oxygen sample system. If
either of these conditions is not met, the Delta F oxygen
cell warranty is void.

3. Slowly open the flow control valve until the recommended flow of
2 to 2.5 SCFH is established on the flow meter.
4. When the proper flow is achieved, make sure the relief valve is
closed by placing an object (e.g., your finger, if the gas is non-
corrosive) over the relief valve vent. Cover and uncover the relief
valve vent and verify that the flow meter shows no change in the
flow rate. Keep the relief valve closed during operation to
minimize leakage in the sample system.

Connecting Optional The Series 3 has two optically isolated recorder outputs. These
Recorder Outputs outputs provide either a current or voltage signal, as selected by
switch blocks on the channel card. Although the Series 3 is
configured to your specifications at the factory, you should check the
switch block positions before making connections. Refer to Figure
2-12 below and check or reset these switch blocks as follows:

Aluminum Oxide The most common probe used with the Series 3 is the aluminum
Moisture Probes oxide moisture probe. This section describes the procedures for
calibrating and maintaining the probe and its cable.

Probe Cable Calibration Whenever a moisture probe cable is modified or replaced, the Series 3
must be calibrated to compensate for any offset introduced by the
cable. This procedure should also be performed after the initial
installation of either a factory-supplied or a use-supplied cable.
Before starting the cable calibration, do the following:
• Power up the Series 3.

• Set up the screen to display the MH values for each channel that
you will be calibrating.
• Note the high, low and zero reference values that are recorded on
the sticker located on the Series 3 chassis.

Perform the calibration by completing the following steps:

1. Disconnect the cable from the moisture probe, but leave the cable
connected to the Series 3. Verify that the displayed MH value
equals the zero reference value within ±0.0003 MH.
• If the reading is within specification, no adjustment is required.
• If the reading is less than the zero reference value on the sticker
±0.0003, add this difference to the low reference value.
• If the reading is greater than the zero reference value on sticker
±0.0003, subtract this difference from the low reference value.
2. Record the final, corrected low reference value.
3. If a change was necessary, program the Series 3 with the new,
corrected low reference value.
4. Verify that the cable is not connected to the probe and verify that
the zero reference reading is now within ±0.0003 MH.
5. Fill out a new high and low reference sticker with the final low
reference value. Make sure you record the information below:
HIGH REF = ORIGINAL VALUE
LOW REF = NEW CORRECTED VALUE
ZERO REF = ORIGINAL RECORDED VALUE
6. Reconnect the probe to the cable.

This completes the procedure. Be sure to repeat the cable calibration


whenever any changes are made to the cable.

Calibration & Maintenance 4-1


August 2004

Probe Cleaning Other than periodic calibration checks, little or no routine moisture
probe maintenance is required. However, any electrically conductive
contaminant trapped on the aluminum oxide sensor will cause
inaccurate moisture measurements. If such a situation develops,
return of the moisture probe to the factory for analysis and
recalibration is recommended. In an emergency, cleaning of the
moisture probe in accordance with the following procedure may be
attempted by a qualified technician or chemist.

IMPORTANT: Moisture probes must be handled carefully and cannot


be cleaned in any fluid that will attack their
components. The probe’s materials of construction are
Al, Al2O3, nichrome, gold, stainless steel, glass and
Viton® A. Also, the sensor’s aluminum sheet is very
fragile and can be easily bent or distorted. Do not
permit anything to touch it!

The following items are needed to properly complete the moisture


probe cleaning procedure:

• approximately 300 ml of reagent grade hexane or toluene

• approximately 300 ml of distilled (not deionized) water

• two glass containers to hold above liquids (metal containers should


not be used).

To clean the moisture probe, complete the following steps:

1. Record the dew point of the ambient air.


2. Making sure not to touch the sensor, carefully remove the
protective shield from the sensor.
3. Soak the sensor in the distilled water for ten (10) minutes. Be sure
to avoid contact with the bottom and the walls of the container!
4. Remove the sensor from the distilled water and soak it in the clean
container of hexane or toluene for ten (10) minutes. Again, avoid
all contact with the bottom and the walls of the container!
5. Remove the sensor from the hexane or toluene, and place it face
up in a low temperature oven set at 50°C ±2°C (122°F ±4°F) for
24 hours.
6. Repeat steps 3-5 for the protective shield. During this process,
swirl the shield in the solvents to ensure the removal of any
contaminants that may have become embedded in the porous walls
of the shield.

4-2 Calibration & Maintenance


August 2004

Probe Cleaning (cont.) After the cleaning steps have been completed, continue as follows:

1. Carefully replace the probe’s protective shield, making sure not to


touch the sensor.
2. Connect the probe cable to the probe, and record the dew point of
the ambient air, as in step 1 on the previous page. Compare the
two recorded dew point readings to determine if the reading after
cleaning is a more accurate dew point value.
3. If the sensor is in proper calibration (±2°C accuracy), reinstall the
probe in the sample cell and proceed with normal operation of the
hygrometer.
4. If the sensor is not in proper calibration, repeat the cleaning steps,
using time intervals 5 times those used in the previous cleaning
cycle. Repeat this procedure until the sensor is in proper
calibration.

A trained laboratory technician should determine if all electrically


conductive compounds have been removed from the aluminum oxide
sensor and that the probe is properly calibrated. Probes which are not
in proper calibration must be recalibrated. It is recommended that all
moisture probes be recalibrated by GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc.
approximately once a year, regardless of the probe’s condition.

Delta F Oxygen Cells The Delta F oxygen cell is a very reliable sensor, but it can only
provide accurate results if it is properly maintained. This section
discusses the necessary procedures to maintain the cell. Refer to
Figure 4-1 below and proceed to the next page for instructions

Figure 4-1: Delta F Oxygen Cell Electrolyte Level

Calibration & Maintenance 4-3


August 2004

Electrolyte Maintenance Over time, particularly when monitoring dry gases, there will be a
gradual loss of water from the electrolyte in the Delta F oxygen cell.
Thus, the electrolyte level should be checked at regular intervals and
adjusted if necessary.

Note: Some applications require that the electrolyte be completely


changed periodically (consult the factory for details).

!WARNING!
The electrolyte contains a strong caustic ingredient that is
harmful if it comes in contact with skin or eyes. Follow
proper procedures for handling the caustic (potassium
hydroxide) solution. Consult your company safety
personnel for recommendations.

Using the min/max window on the oxygen cell (see Figure 4-1 on the
previous page), check to be sure the electrolyte covers about 60% of
the window. If it is necessary to raise the fluid level in the reservoir,
add DISTILLED WATER slowly in small amounts. Check the level as
you add the distilled water, making sure you do not overfill the
reservoir.

Calibrating the Delta F The Delta F oxygen cell should be calibrated upon initial installation
Oxygen Cell and about once a month thereafter for the first three months.
Additional calibrations should be performed as needed and whenever
the electrolyte is changed. The process includes:

• checking the calibration

• Your system must have a calibration gas inlet valve.

• You must know the PPMv value of the calibration gas.

• entering the new span value

• GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. recommends that the calibration


gas value be 80-100% of the span of the sensor’s overall range
(e.g., 80-100 PPMv oxygen for a 0-100 PPMv oxygen sensor).
• GE Infrastructure Sensing, Inc. recommends that the calibration
gas be in a background of nitrogen.

Note: If your measurement range is significantly lower than your


span gas value, you may elect to directly input the PPMv
oxygen content of the span gas and the measured µA value as
an alternative to the following procedure.

4-4 Calibration & Maintenance


August 2004

Checking the Oxygen Cell To check the oxygen cell calibration, complete the following steps:
Calibration
1. Determine which channel is connected to the Delta F oxygen cell
2. Set up the display to read the oxygen content in PPMv and µA.
3. Start the flow of calibration gas through the oxygen cell.
4. Read the PPMv value. If it is correct, your oxygen cell is properly
calibrated. However, if the reading is incorrect, you must calculate
the new span reading (x) as follows:
( OX 1 – OX c ) ( IO c – IO 0 )
x = IO c + --------------------------------------------------------------
-
( OX – OX ) c 0

where, OXc = correct PPMv for the calibration gas


OX0 = zero value in PPMv*
OX1 = span value in PPMv*
Oc = actual reading for calibration gas in µA
O0 = zero value in µA*
x = new span reading in µA

*See the Calibration Data Sheet for the oxygen cell to obtain the
applicable zero and span values.

Example: If the calibration data for your cell is as follows:


OXc = 75 PPMv
OX0 = 0.050 PPMv
OX1 = 100 PPMv
IOc = 290 µA
O0 = 0.4238 µA

( 100 – 75 ) ( 290 – 0.4238 )


Then, x = 290 + --------------------------------------------------------------
( 75 – 0.05 )

The new span value (x) is 100 PPMv ≅ 387 µA. Enter the new value
as described in the next section.

Entering Background Gas The factory calibration for Delta F oxygen cells uses nitrogen as the
Calibration Data reference background gas, and the Series 3 will yield inaccurate
oxygen measurements if a background gas other than nitrogen is
used. However, you may use a background gas other than nitrogen if
you first recalibrate the Series 3 for the desired background gas.
