Textile Moisture Meter

Checkline Logo

Measuring Range: 0.3 to 26.0% water content Digital textile moisture meter tmt 425
Available with optional USB output

Model TMT-425 is the next generation of textile moisture meters; it determines the moisture content of textiles, natural materials, synthetics and yarn during the production process within seconds. The elasticity and tensile strength of yarn and textiles are influenced by the water content. 

Textile curves are stored onboard the instrument, for easy selection, ensuring maximum accuracy.

Features

  • Wide measuring range of 0.3% to 26% moisture content
  • Factory-supplied calibration curves included; Wool, Cotton, Rayon, Flax yarn, Jute yarn, Hemp yarn, Acetate, Nylon, Polyacrylic, Polyester and Digit (Reference scale)
  • Many stored curves for determining humidity in textile, natural and synthetic fabrics and yarns.
  • Automatically calculates average measurement values
  • Automatic temperature compensation
  • Memory Enables quality control and documentation on location
  • Menu languages: German, English, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian
  • No conversion tables needed!

Optional Electrodes
202 202

For raw cotton, with a friction clutch permitting adjustment of a constant pressure. For measuring bulk goods such as cotton etc.The material is poured into the cup and compressed with the pad of the compression screw. As the material is compressed, it is crushed on the crusher cone to ensure accurate readings. The electrode connects to the moisture meter direct, without the use of the universal measuring cable.
Requires use of additional cable, P/N: 50400CM
