SK Digital Moisture Meter is used for every Textile material, irrespective of its form (i.e., Fiber, Yarn, and Fabric). All textile materials contain water, which is expressed in terms of moisture percentage. Wool has got the highest moisture content and synthetic fibers contain the lowest moisture content. It is based on the principle – moisture content is determined by measuring the electrical conductivity of the material, which always is proportional to the content of the moisture.
Digital moisture testers are used to measure moisture content of textile & yarns samples quickly & effectively. It measures moisture by sensing the electrical resistance of the hygroscopic material. The section of sensor depends upon the form of the material. The sensing can be done with one of the three types of electrodes :-
• Pin Type Sensor (Small Pins) : It is used for loose Cotton materials cones, cheese.
• Pin Type Sensor (Long Pins) : The Sensor with long Pins is used for Cotton Bales.
• Flat Type Sensor : It is used for fabrics, garments etc.
• Roller Type Sensor : It is used for fabric or yarn in running condition.
