Moisture Meter

November 30, -0001

Standberg Engineering Laboratories has developed a new portable moisture meter that works on textile fabric, nonwovens, carpet, yarn and raw stock including seed cotton and ginned lint, over the full spectrum, from bone dry to soaking wet. The ranges are unbroken, continuous and linear. The new portable moisture monitor, model M-2000, and its safe, low-energy, reflectance-type micro­wave transceiver are housed in an ABS plastic case. Non-invasive, momentary contact with the textile material automatically locks in the correct moisture percentage based solely on the density of the material. Unlike infrared moisture sensors, which reflect surface moisture only, the M-2000 penetrates deeply into the textile materials and is immune to fiber, color and temperature.
