Title: A SATURATED SALT SOLUTION HYGROMETER CALIBRATION SYSTEM

Abstract

A hygrometer calibration system employing saturated salt solution to maintain a constant relative humidity and a dew-point indicator was developed. An evaluation at 26.7 deg C for saturated salt solutions of lithium chloride, potassium acetate, potassium fluoride, magnesium chloride, potassium carbonate, sodium dichromate, sodium bromide, sodium chloride, sodium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, and pctassium nitrate indicated that the calibration system had an accuracy better than one percentage point of relative humidity for all the salts tested except potassium nitrate.
