TQC Sling Psychrometer

Description

TQC Sling Psychrometer

Bacharach type sling Psychrometer for indicating percent relative humidity on the basis of the wet bulb-dry bulb thermometer principle. The plastic case of the instrument equipped with conversion scale for calculating the percent relative humidity.

Using a Sling Psychrometer

Hygrometer usually used for measured the air relative humidity. The simplest hygrometer – a sling psychrometer – consists of two thermometers mounted together with a handle attached on a chain. One thermometer is ordinary, and the other with a cloth wick over its bulb is a wet-bulb thermometer.

When a reading is to be taken, the wick is first dipped in water and then the instrument is whirled around. During the whirling, the water evaporates from the wick, cooling the wet-bulb thermometer. Then the temperatures of both thermometers can be read.

If the surrounding air is dry, more moisture evaporates from the wick, cooling the wet-bulb thermometer more so there is a greater difference between the temperatures of the two thermometers. If the surrounding air is holding as much moisture as possible – if the relative humidity is 100% – there is no difference between the two temperatures. Meteorologists have worked out charts of these differences for each degree of temperature so that the observer can find relative humidity easily.

Relative Humidity – Temperature in Celsius

Below table  used to estimate the relative humidity of air if dry and wet bulb temperatures are known.

Dry Bulb Temperature = Tdb / Wet Bulb Temperature = Twb
