Measuring Range: 5 - 50% MC

2 Models
BMC - Biomass Moisture Meter with Memory - NO OUTPUT
BMC-USB - Biomass Moisture Meter with Memory - USB DATA OUTPUT

Highly accurate moisture meter with automatic bulk density compensation for quick determination of water content of wood chips, barks, wooden pellets, elephant grass, wood shavings and sawdust.

The entire measurement procedure is extremely easy & only takes seconds. Simply turn on the gauge, collect the desired Biomass test sample and pour into storage bin and view the water content (%-moisture) on the large backlit LCD display.

The BMC and BMC-USB models both include a built-in datalogger for storage of 10,000 values. The BMC-USB model ads USB data output for downloading stored data to a PC with software included at no additional charge.

Both models include the possibility to program and store three (3) custom calibrations if one of the factory-supplied calibration is not sufficient to produce desired results.

Also known as the HGF moisture meter.

FactoryCalibration Curves

Calibration NameDescriptionCategory
Wood chipsFor wood chips with fine fraction, consisting of at least one third hardwood. The fine fraction mainly derives from barks, small branches and bushes.P31 to P45
Coarse wood chipsFor coarse wood chips without fine fraction, consisting of at least one third hardwood. This curve is predominantly suited for measuring wood chips deriving from logs and full trees (poplar, willow)P45 to P63
Softwood chipsFor wood chips with fine fraction, mainly (more than two thirds) consisting of softwood (spruce, fir, pine, larch). The fine fraction mainly derives from barks, small branches and bushes.P16 to P45
Softwood coarse chipsFor coarse wood chips without fine fraction, mainly (more than two thirds) consisting of softwood (spruce, fir, pine, larch) of 70% and more. This curve is predominantly suited for measuring wood chips deriving from logs and full trees as well as sawP45 to P63
Fine wood chipsFor fine wood chips with a high proportion of fine fraction, consisting of at least one third hardwood. The fine fraction mainly derives from barks, small branches and bushesP16 to P31
