MBW Calibration

MBW Calibration LogoWho is MBW Calibration?

MBW Calibration is recognised internationally for its high quality chilled mirror dew point hygrometers used in a variety of humidity calibration, measurement and gas quality applications.

MBW was founded in 1962 as a manufacturer of precise instrumentation for textile, heat treatment and humidity measurement applications. Based in Wettingen Switzerland, the core Swiss principles of precision, quality and sustainability was a key to its success.

During the 1960s and 70s, MBW products expanded in range and capability and they started to reach export markets thanks to their excellent performance and reliability. Within the 1980s and 1990s, MBWs international reputation led to our products becoming established transfer standards at National Metrology Institutes (NMI) worldwide, with many instruments remaining in service for up to 30 years. In partnership with US company RH Systems, the 373 dew point hygrometer was introduced in 1999 as the ultimate instrument for measuring humidity, and today it remains the transfer standard of choice throughout the worlds NMIs, calibration laboratories and high end research organisations.

What is our relationship to MBW Calibration?

We have been a importer and distributor of MBW in Southern Africa for quite some time and provided a MBW devices as our national Standard for South Africa.

With our industry experience and using a network of close partnerships we promote the MBW range of high quality Dew Point measurement products.

What does MBW Calibration do?

Most notably, their instruments provide the calibration trace-ability for many laboratories such as humidity instrument manufacturers and National Metrology Institutes including NMISA in South Africa.  MBW are increasingly the preferred instruments for low uncertainty measurement and calibration systems in National Meteorological and Hydrological Service organisations due to  recent requirements for higher performance humidity measurement in the meteorological industry

They are also a leading provider of SF6 gas quality analysers relying uniquely on chilled mirror technology that provides years of high precision and high stability measurements without frequent sensor replacement.  Most of the world’s leading high voltage switch-gear manufacturers use this technology for factory test, commissioning and service applications.

For industrial applications such as heat treatment, fuel cells, climatic chamber validation, compressed air, breathing gas and battery manufacturing, our high performance and stability mean we are able to reach the highest possible measurement capability with a lower cost of ownership.

MBW has a range of products and services focusing on complimenting their meteorological accurate dew point mirror instrument which uses a chilled mirror to detect the dew point of air.
