The WTR-1A Bio-meter is a state-of-the-art electronic device for measuring moisture contents in sawdust, scobs, wood shavings, slivers and other finely crumbled wood waste as well as cut straw and hay. It can also be used for moisture contents measurements of hay in packs. To do so tear out a handful of hay, crush it in your hands and conduct measurements the same way as with cut straw. Moisture Meter WTR-1A Bio-meter is widely used during the manufacturing process of briquettes and pellets. The device is equipped with a temperature compensation knob and is delivered in an aesthetic black case.
The Moisture Meter measures the resistance of a compressed sample of sawdust. The measurement is done in two stages:
1st – the sample is compressed always to the same pressure of approx. 0.2 MPa,
2nd – the resistance of the sample is measured and converted into moisture contents.
