This moisture meter has been designed for rapid and accurate determination of the moisture content of a wide variety of materials. It is a torsion wire instrument, the torque being applied to one end of the wire by means of a calibrated drum to balance the loss of weight as the test sample dries under infrared radiation. The speed of drying (about 30 min) thus obtained combined with the frictionless balancing system gives the result as accurate as those obtained by standard oven drying method. Since drying and weighing are simultaneous, it is specially useful for determination of moisture in substances, that quickly reabsorbs moisture after drying. The infrared radiation is controlled by a voltage regulator and thereby provides excellent heat control. The instrument is provided with an indicator lamp, which glows when the unit is switched on.
