Accurate moisture measurement of sawn timber
The Moistspy moisture meter measures the moisture profile of sawn timber in dry grading or remanufacturing plants. Moisture is measured using microwaves that penetrate the board from 4 to 8 points. Accurate moisture measurement improves the detection of drying errors and makes follow-up to the drying process more effective.
By combining the Moistspy moisture meter with the Finscan grading system and Endspy end camera, even more comprehensive information about the boards is obtained for sorting, optimisation and strength-grading.
