Q1: How does a moisture meter work?
Q2: The portable moisture detector is composed of a capacitance sensor, C/V conversion circuit, A/D converter and LCD digital display circuit. After the capacitance sensor is scooped into the tested grain, the medium is a variety of different grains tested. Since the dielectric constant of water is much larger than that of general substances, a small change in the measured grain water content will cause a large change in the capacitance of the sensor. Through the C/V conversion circuit and A/D converter, the LCD digital circuit directly shows the percentage of the measured grain water content.
Q1: What are the types of moisture meters?
A2: A moisture meter (moisture tester) is a measuring instrument for moisture content that can quickly determine the moisture content of a substance. Commonly used moisture meters include chemical moisture meters, paper moisture meters, infrared moisture meters, grain moisture meters, building materials moisture meters, mortar moisture meters, crack moisture meters, soil moisture meters and wood moisture meters.
Q3: Why use a Hay Moisture Tester?
A3: Hay moisture has a direct and profound effect on hay quality. If crop moisture is too high, the product will be less palatable, mold (and potentially mycotoxins) can develop, and in extreme cases thermal expansion, which can lead to burning. If the moisture content is too low, the nutritional value will be reduced, the hay volume will be reduced, and the palatability of the final product will be reduced. Therefore, it is necessary to purchase a hay moisture tester to detect the moisture in the hay.
Tips: What is a pin type moisture meter?
A pin type hygrometer consists of two metal pin types that sit on top of the hygrometer like an antenna. Such pin types help to identify the amount of moisture. Using a pin type moisture meter requires adjusting the pin types with a dot on the substance and pressing them down to identify the desired substance or item.
When these pins are pressed, the user can use a hygrometer with a control board to send a signal from the pins to the device. The signal goes through the substance to another pin. Moisture measurement tools use the signal to identify the resistance of an item or substance to voltage, which helps identify moisture content. However, a pin type hygrometer is a tool that allows the exact location of humidity to be determined.
