BM1-KITBM1 model (Humimeter # 11907) bundled with Scale HM-11656
BM2-KIT BM2 model (Humimeter # 11910) bundled with Scale HM-11656

Humimeter Model BM for testing the moisture content of most types of biomass materials.

Highly accurate moisture meter with automatic bulk density compensation for quick determination of water content of wood chips, barks, wooden pellets, elephant grass, wood shavings and sawdust.

The entire measurement procedure is extremely easy & only takes seconds. Simply turn on the gauge, collect the desired Biomass test sample and pour into storage bin and view the water content (%-moisture) on the large backlit LCD display.

The BM1 and BM2 models both include a built-in datalogger for storage of 10,000 values. The BM2 model is supplied with a serial output for downloading stored data to an external printer, PC-Software or 3rd-Party accounting programs and is supplied with PC-Software, Transfer Cable and USB Converter at no additional cost.
