BT-710 Cell Head for In-Plane Membrane Conductivity Measurements with the 740 MTS + BT-110 and a benchtop Potentiostat.
The BT-710 is a complete MTS 740 cell head with the in-plane conductivity fixture installed (BT-110 Mounted to the MTS-740 Cell Head).
Download the Excel® spreadsheet that calculates the relationship between gas relative humidity, water vapor partial pressure and percent wet as function of user-defined operating conditions of humidifier temperature, sample temperature and system pressure. MTS 740 users will find this tool valuable when developing RH test profiles for membrane resistance and conductivity testing.
