TEM-1 Textile Moisture Meter

Made in GermanyThe Check-Line TEM-1 textile moisture meter determines the residual moisture in yarn bobbins, fabric rolls, filaments, fiber flocks, etc...

The measuring principle of the TEM-1 is based on the electrical conductivity of the material which always bears a fixed relation to the moisture. All changes in resistance inside the measuring ranges of interest are sufficiently pronounced to ensure a high degree of accuracy for the readings obtained with the TEM-1.

The electrical indicating accuracy of the TEM-1 is +/- 0.1% whilst the reproducibility is +/- 0.2% referred of the absolute readings on the meter dial.


TEM-1 Scales


  • Easy to use for many applications
  • Multiple scale for direct readings for wool, rayon and cotton
  • Portable, battery-operated
  • 0 -100 scale for comparison tables used for other materials like Polyester, Polyamid and many material mixtures
  • High accuracy and repeatability
