Relevant To

Technicians / Senior Technicians (members and non-members) and above or anyone wanting to improve their knowledge of moisture meters and readings.

Objectives

• To gain a better insight to the operations and functions of different types of moisture meter • To understand the correlation between different meter readings on different materials. • To improve consistency and standards across the drying industry.

Content

  • What does a moisture meter actually do and why do we need them?
