Sawdust moisture meter WTR-1E is a state-of-the-art electronic device for measuring moisture contents in sawdust, scobs, wood shavings, slivers and other finely crumbled wood waste. It can also be used for measurements of moisture contents of ready made pellets (after crushing) as well as approximate measurements of moisture contents of very wet sawdust. Moisture meter WTR-1E is widely used during the manufacturing process of briquettes and pellets. The device is equipped with temperature compensation 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:
- first – the sample is compressed always to the same pressure of approx. 0.2 MPa,
- second – the resistance of the sample is measured and converted into moisture contents.
