ELMES MOISTURE METER
 HMI-1 <Japanese Patent No. 1701412, U.S. Patent No. 4787052>
 

MI-1(Indicator)
This is a moisture meter of the dry weight method used for measuring moisture contained in soil to control moisture in powders and slag, or used for measuring the surface water of fine aggregate (sand) for concrete.
The meter consists of a Heating equipment using a carbon block, Indicator, and Test specimen container. The container with the test specimen is inserted into a temperature-controlled heating equipment for 2 to 4 minutes to dry (notified by a buzzer). Then by measuring it, the built-in micro processor calculates the moisture ratio (or rate) and displays it digitally.
Also, by using an exclusive core cutter for specimen gathering, the density of the soil may be measured.
