BM2 biomass moisture meter

January 19, 2010
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 display.

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.
