Ametek 5830 Moisture Analyzer

General Details

Model 5830 Moisture Analyzer


Building upon the success of our quartz-crystal moisture measurement technology, AMETEK’s Model 5830 is an easy-to-use process moisture analyzer that offers a truly remarkable combination of performance features: exceptional accuracy, multi-gas compatibility, fast response speed, and wide measurement range.

The 5830 is ideal for critical moisture measurement applications including high purity gas production, semiconductor gases, and industrial gas production and quality assurance. Equipped with an on-line verification system, this state-of-the-art analyzer is designed to rapidly build and maintain operator confidence in its analyses. The verification system allows you to challenge the analyzer’s sensor at will with either a zero gas or an actual NIST-traceable moisture concentration to check both its baseline stability and responsiveness to real moisture. No other manufacturer offers these exclusive abilities in their moisture analyzers.
