Since 1948, MEECO has produced durable, high-quality gas analyzers for industry. Chief among our customers are natural and industrial gas producers and their distributors, utilities, chemical and petrochemical companies and the makers and users of ultra-high-purity gas. Headquartered in Warrington, PA, MEECO was founded by Dr. Gustav Bergson, a Harvard-trained physicist. He produced equipment to measure such disparate elements as color, radio frequencies, the micro vapor pressure of jet fuels and oxygen in gases. By the 1950′s, an arrangement with E.I. DuPont DeNemours enabled MEECO to pioneer instruments that measure trace moisture in solids, natural gas, and industrial specialty gases. As such, the electrolytic method is presently MEECO’s core technology.
Moisture Analyzers and Natural Gas

MEECO Stands for Cutting Edge Innovation
By 1995, MEECO was ready with the Turbo 2™, capable of detecting down to one ppb and lower, and the WaterBoy™, an inexpensive easy-to-use, new portable for the natural and industrial gas industries. And, in 1997, another product outpouring occurred with the advent of the Tracer™, the first low-cost, modular ppb moisture analyzer; the NastyBoy™, an innovative design for moisture in chlorine; the Accupoint LP, a transmitter for measuring moisture at low pressures; and the UHP Sprite™, a very simple, inexpensive go/no-go device for tracking moisture breakthroughs on the ultra-high-purity gas lines.
By 1999, MEECO introduced the WaterBoy 2™, Accupoint 2™ and Accupoint LP 2™, updated versions of their microprocessor-driven predecessors. A fourth device, the IceMan™, designed in collaboration with DuPont, measures moisture in Freon substitutes, a growing market. Further, MEECO launched a line of percent humidity devices, the Aquatek™ series, for demanding industrial environments.
MEECO introduced the Aquavolt™ and Aquavolt+™ in late 2001. Prized for their robust technology and simplicity of use, these rack-mount instruments are highly valued in their second decade of service in online moisture monitoring. The AquaVolt is used primarily for industrial gases and instrument air. The AquaVolt+, with a lower detection limit of 35 ppbV, is chiefly found in scientific labs, specialty gas applications and semiconductor gas qualification.
The Tracer 2™, an update of our flagship model, was introduced in 2005. It pairs 0.5 parts-per-billion (ppb) moisture detection with improved speed of response.
In 2010, MEECO launched the M-i™ online mini moisture monitor. Designed for use directly on the gas supply line, the M-i measures an ideal range of 0.5 ppm to 1000 ppm (parts-per-million). A breakthrough in mini-sensors, the M-i packs high-powered clean technology into a small, innovative, and affordable package. Utilizing MEECO’s accurate and linear electrolytic technology, the M-i guarantees peace of mind with no-drift analysis. In 2012, the company introduced its MedOx™ instrument, designed specifically for medical oxygen handled by gas suppliers, hospitals and the aviation industry.
