Biomass moisture measuring devices

Biomass moisture measuring devices

All woods are not created equal – especially when they are too moist. Too much moisture greatly reduces the fuel value of wood and impacts its weight. The merlin® biomass and raw timber moisture measuring devices make it easy for producers, dealers, and customers to determine the current moisture level. They can reliably calculate prices and also prevent heating system problems.

merlin® offers three different precision devices for precise and reliable moisture measurement of raw timber, woodchips, barks, pellets, miscanthus, plane shavings and sawdust.

All three devices are calibrated in an accredited test lab and are available in the standard version or optionally with a PC interface, USB adapter, and analysis software.


Measuring device for fast and precise determination of moisture content in woodchips, barks, pellets, miscanthus, plane shavings and sawdust.


Measuring device with lancet probe for determining the moisture content in woodchips.


Thanks to its high measurement depth and wide measuring range (up to 60% moisture content), MOISTEC-BIO is ideal for operators of biomass heating systems, wood suppliers, buyers of raw timber and firewood who need professional accounting.
