Climatic Conditions

Climatic Conditions

Climatic condition testing is essential for successful coating applications, high temperatures can lead to bubbles in dry film. Relative humidity and dew point measures can be used to prevent poor adhesion and inadequate corrosion protection.

Digital Dew Point Meters.

Measures climatic parameters including air temperature, surface temperature, relative humidity, wet bulb temperature, dew point temperature and difference between surface and dew point temperatures.


Whirling Hygrometer
The Elcometer 116A Whirling Hygrometer is available in either a ºC scale. A guide for Relative Humidity (RH) Calculation is supplied with each instrument. The dewpoint can be accurately obtained using Elcometer 114 Dewpoint Calculator.

Dewpoint Calculator
This provides accurate values of Relative Humidity (RH) and Dewpoint from the wet and dry bulb temperatures of a Whirling or Sling Hygrometer - such as the Elcometer 116 range. The range of the Elcometer 114 is -10ºC to 50ºC (14ºF to 122ºF) and it has an accuracy of ±1% of standard tables. The calculator includes a ºC to ºF converter.


Magnetic Thermometer
The Elcometer 113 Magnetic Thermometer indicates the surface temperature of steel and other magnetic materials continuously. The thermometer is based on a bimetallic strip and therefore does not require batteries. It is available in four scale ranges.
