Panoramica MT20
MT20 in azione.jpg


MT20 Dual Deep allows moisture measurement in wood; the indication given represents the average percentage of water content referred to as the dry weight of the material.


The measurement is based on the dielectric constant of the object under examination, which is characteristic of each material and influenced by the presence of water molecules.

This type of measurement allows a quick assessment of the moisture content of the material without damaging it.

MT20 can measure moisture on the surface (8-15 mm) or deeper (15-25 mm).
