Accurate moisture measurement of sawn timber

MoistSpy moisture meter measures the moisture profile of sawn timber in dry grading or remanufacturing plants. Moisture is measured with microwaves that penetrate the board from 4 to 8 points. Accurate moisture measurement improves detection of drying errors and follow-up of drying process.

By combining MoistSpy moisture meter with BoardMaster grading system and EndSpy end camera, even more comprehensive information about the boards is achieved for sorting, optimization and strength grading.
