Cotton Tester

June 14, 2007

Kernco Instruments Co., Inc., is pleased to introduce the Model C-2000 digital cotton tester designed with two (2) scales for testing lint cotton or seed cotton. The C-2000 is an electrical resistance type moisture meter utilizing the relationship between moisture content and electrical resistance.  The contact pins mounted on top of the meter are used for making direct contact with the material.  Various other electrodes are available for other types of testing yarns, bales (large or small) lint or seed cotton.  Also for measuring online moisture of cotton on a moving web.

A moisture tester is a valuable tool during the ginning process and when buying cotton.  Cotton ginned at the appropriate level of moisture produces the longest and strongest fibers.
