About us

Moisture Control & Measurement Ltd is a privately owned UK company, with a specialised and dedicated team who focus on providing the best solutions in the field of moisture in gas analysis.

With over 40 years of experience in hygrometry, we stand at the forefront of our chosen industry.

MCM was established in 1968 with the primary goal of developing moisture standards for the UK defence industry. Subsequently, by the mid 1970s, it became clear that the hygrometers available at that time could no longer match the performance of our new moisture generators and calibrators. And so a fresh R&D agenda was devised. With a drive for progression MCM began work on improving sensing techniques, looking for an alternative to the traditional measuring devices.

If it's true that good things come to those who wait, then the patience of the MCM team was rewarded with the development of the Silicon Chip Sensor. Unique in the field of moisture measurement, this revolutionary Sensor was pioneered in the early 1980s and its superior performance would be synonymously linked with MCM’s commitment to quality and original design. The Silicon Chip allowed MCM to push the boundaries of performance, offering the user unique features such as Temperature Control and the Push Purge® Sensor heating feature, which helped provide the fastest, most stable and most repeatable moisture analysers on the market.

Today, more than 25 years after the Silicon Chip was pioneered, MCM are still the only manufacturer to use this technology, and the associated advantages and benefits of its use remain unique to our instrumentation. With the principle of operation well established, we’ve developed new analysers that are geared towards ease of use and quality data capture, for rapid and reliable hygrometry applications throughout the world.
