Interruption of gas supply

Test procedure:

Due to the constant gassing with nitrogen the relative humidity inside a desiccator is 15 %. A SICCO Gas Dosing Controller is connected during the lead in of nitrogen in order to control the gas supply and monitor the relative humidity. The attainable required humidity is adjusted to 10 %, the flow rate to 8 Liters / minute and the pressure reducer on the nitrogen bottle to 0,5 bar. The Gas Dosing Controller is turned off to interrupt the gas supply. The desiccator remains closed tightly until the end of the test. The curves show the relative humidity versus time.


Despite the missing gas supply the relative humidity inside the desiccator is only proportionally increasing slowly.
