BM-1 Biomass Moisture Analyzer
Measures biomass water content from 5 to 60 %, depending on the material

The BM-1 biomass moisture analyzer allows for the quick, easy and accurate determination of the water content of biomass materials such as wood chips, barks, shavings, sawdust, pellets, grasses, cobs, rinds and chopped goods. Precise moisture measurement ensures fair pricing of biomass for producers, retailers and consumers. In addition, water content is crucial to the calorific value of wood.

Using the BM-1 biomass moisture analyzer, quality control testing is performed in a matter of seconds. Simply switch on the meter, replenish the sample chamber and, once the value stabilizes, read the water content percentage shown on the display. The meter also measures the temperature of the sample simultaneously.

An ideal tool for biomass suppliers as well as biomass heating plant operators, the BM-1 biomass moisture analyzer comes manufacturer calibrated. An optional ISO calibration certificate is available for an additional fee. A digital scale (BM-1-W) is a required accessory sold separately. See the accessories tab for details.
