Click images to enlarge.
The DHT-3 Textile Moisture Meter instantaneously measures the moisture content in fibers, yarns and bales of raw, synthetic or mixed textile material.

17 stored measurement scales for the following materials: wool ,rayon, cotton, linen, nylon, acrylic, polyester, 50% wool-50%cotton, 60% cotton-40% PES, 70%pac-30% wool, 67%pac-33% cotton, 70%PES-30% wool, 70%pes-30%rayon, 67% PES-33% cotton, 50% PES-50% cotton, 50%PES- 50% rayon, 50%pes-50%pac

The DHT-3 Moisture Meter is supplied with probe holder, connection cable in carrying case, needle probes 414 & 418.

Measuring principle:
The moisture content is determined by measuring the electrical conductivity of the material, which always is proportional to the content of the moisture.

Roller electrode for fabrics
Textile Moisture Meter Electrode 422
Set of 2 different calibration electrodes with fixed moisture values. Needed for varification and re-adjusting of the instrument.
Textile Moisture Meter Electrode 428
To measure room temperature °C and RH %. Useful parameters to check the balance condition of the materialunder testing. Length 170 mm, weight 60 g
202 202
For raw cotton, with a friction clutch permitting adjustment of a constant pressure. For measuring bulk goods such as cotton etc.The material is poured into the cup and compressed with the pad of the compression screw. As the material is compressed, it is crushed on the crusher cone to ensure accurate readings. The electrode connects to the moisture meter direct, without the use of the universal measuring cable.
Requires use of additional cable, P/N: 50400CM
For measuring harder materials e. g. felt, needle length 17 mm, weight 40 g 208

For measuring harder materials e. g. felt, needle length 17 mm, weight 40 g
