Jan. 19, 2010 – Fast,
accurate, and easy to use, the new Check-Line BM2 Biomass Moisture Meter measures the moisture content of wood
chips, bark, wood, straw or Miscanthus pellets, elephant grass, wood shavings,
and sawdust. It allows
moisture-related machinery issues to be detected early before serious problems
arise. It also helps biomass producers, suppliers, and end users ensure that
they are not paying for excessive water content.
To operate, fill the stainless steel
measuring chamber with sample material; no prior sample preparation is required.
Use the keypad to select the correct material calibration curve. Common curves
are included in the software or use the customer calibration function for
special products. In seconds, sample temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius, and
moisture content from 5 to 60%, appear on the large, back-lit, LCD
A built-in datalogger stores up to
10,000 entries with suppliers’ data and batch numbers. Measurements can be transferred
to a computer or printer. An integrated online function allows stored data to
be transferred to other third-party programs.
The BM2 has a resolution of 0.5%
water content and a calibration accuracy of ±1.5%, with automatic temperature
compensation and self-calibration. Four AA batteries provide power for 900
readings. Gauge menus are available in English, German, French, and Italian. The
BM2 is supplied with a sample measuring bucket, interface for PC transfer, data
link cable, USB/RS-232 adapter, LogMemorizer software, 4 AA (1.5 V) alkaline
batteries, calibration certificate, and operating manual. It can be bundled with
an optional digital scale and comes with a two-year warranty.
