Measure the moisture in your SF6, alternative eco gas or dry air assets with EMT Moisture Pro

Measurement of moisture in SF6, alternative eco gases or dry air assets is critical to the long-term health and reliability of the assets in T&D utility networks. A simple ‘GO/NO GO’ device, the EMT Moisture Pro is a smart survey meter for fast, reliable and accurate moisture determination. Packed with smart features, Moisture Pro is the essential device for every engineer’s tool kit, and is proving to be the instrument of choice with asset managers and compliance/operations personnel, specifying the unit for inventory – EMT have recently secured an order of multiple units for a major utility in the US.


  • Ultrafast analysis results in <2mins – reducing time/costs of gas testing, increasing efficiency/productivity of engineers
  • Highly accurate moisture measurement – 100°C to +20°C measurement range and +/-2°C accuracy over a range of 0-1.5MPa. Measurements also selectable in ppm(v), % rH, g/m3, mg/m3, g/m3 atm., mg/m3 atm., g/kg or °C Td atm
  • Other measurement parameters – temperature (-30 to +50°C) and pressure (0-1.5 MPa(g))
  • Handheld and lightweight – <2.7Kg for the whole kit (<1.5Kg for analyser) manoeuvrable and portable
  • 3.5” colour touch screen – simple intuitive software displays results numerically and graphically
  • Integrated operation with EMT parts – utilising EMT standard hoses and connections ensures engineers can utilise EMT fittings and analysers using the same equipment for reduced costs
  • Predictive end dew point – results within seconds using predictive algorithms
  • Integrated bluetooth communication – bluetooth wireless printer for reports on site
  • Integrated datalogger – comprehensive datalogger for recording measurement results of key site parameters (site, operator, notes) and also visual images
  • Integrated 5 megapixel camera – photos of the asset being tested can be tagged and downloaded from the instrument for audit trail and proof of assessment

The Moisture Pro is the ideal complimentary product to the Eco+ 4 in 1 SF6 & Eco Gas Analyser. Both products will be available for demonstration on booth S110 at CIGRE in Paris from Tuesday 30th August, so be sure to come along to the EMT stand for all the latest technologies from our SF6 & Eco Gas product ranges. There are still appointments available for an in-booth product demo so get in touch ahead of the show

EMT News SF6 Gas Handling

Struggling with SF6 compartment nameplate inaccuracies causing “phantom emissions of SF6”?

The Smartfill Nameplate Validator from EMT solves these problems.


Proposed US CARB & EPA regulations allow utilities to retrospectively adjust SF6 nameplate values to the true SF6 content; if it is found to be >2% in variance. Nameplates have been found to be up to 15% inaccurate, leading to inaccuracies in SF6 inventory levels and false “leakages” reported when maintaining or disposing of SF6 equipment.


Utilizing EMT’s proven technologies, the Smartfill Nameplate Validator provides a quick, accurate and flexible method for determining the true mass of SF6 within a compartment, with the following benefits:


1. No need for a power outage – the test can be run on a live energised system
2. No need to remove all the gas or vacuum – reducing the risk of asset damage and time taken
3. No need for multiple large gas cylinders – minimising safety and manual handling issues
4. No need for extra manpower and time – the test can be run with one engineer <1hr
5. No need for gas carts and dedicated transport – provided in 3x easily transportable Peli-cases <65lb each


SF6 nameplate accuracy presents real benefits to utilities, reducing SF6 install base, reducing SF6 stock inventory, reducing reported leak rates and reducing potential fines and punitive actions for SF6 loss that never occurred.
