The Model 920 uses a pre-weighed sample and a reliable sample loading mechanism to ensure accurate, repeatable results. It uses proven measurement principles and a cell design that makes it one of the most consistently accurate and economical moisture testers on the market. All results are displayed directly without the need for moisture or temperature conversion tables.

Built for portability, the moisture tester weighs only 2.7 pounds, yet it features rugged, all-metal construction to handle the rigors of field use.
