Moisture content monitoring in a high-pressure gasket material using an RF method
- Conference date: 15–20 July 2012
- Location: Denver, Colorado, USA
The performance of pressure cell gaskets for high-pressure, high-temperature apparatus depends on moisture content in the gasket material. Normally 0.2% moisture by weight, the gasket material is hygroscopic. Higher moisture content can lead to press anvil failure. To mitigate this issue we propose a nondestructive, radio frequency (RF) moisture measurement approach that is sensitive to low moisture levels. Research shows that this technique is more sensitive to reabsorbed atmospheric moisture than to intrinsic moisture.
