HGF biomass moisture meter for wood chips

The HGF woodchip moisture meter permits an easy and accurate determination of the moisture content of wood chips. The moisture measurement of wood chips is a high priority in the processing of biomass since the storage of humid wood chips can cause a variety of problems affecting the overall level of quality.

This humimeter is equipped with five traces for deciduous and softwood, from the wood chips classes P16 (G30) to P63 (G100), and enables you to accurately estimate the humidity absorbed in your wood chips and thus prevents expensive misjudgments. Depending on the grade, the device covers a measuring range of 5% to 50% water content and the measuring results are shown on the integrated display within seconds.

The user-friendly menu of the HGF as well as its easy handling make this measuring device the perfect solution not only for heating plants and large producers, but also for smaller suppliers. In order to start a measuring process, you only have to select the appropriate calibration curve, pour the material to be measured into the measuring chamber and then you can read the moisture content in% moisture from the large LCD display.

In addition, this high quality measuring device has a manual data memory for up to 10,000 values and with the HGF-USB it also offers you the possibility to transfer the data via USB cable to a PC.

If your material to be measured differs from the standards provided, there is still the option of depositing up to 3 additional customer-specific characteristics. Please contact us to arrange the details of an additional specific calibration.
