UTS-0150 Universal Moisture Tester (Carbide Meter)UTS-0150 1

The UTS-0150 Universal Moisture Tester (Carbide Meter) uses the calcium carbide method to determine the moisture content of soil. The soil sample is placed into the bottle with the reagent. The water reacts with the calcium carbide and develops a gas pressure, which is displayed on the manometer and easily converted into percentage of moisture. 

The Universal Moisture Tester is supplied complete with;

  • Carbide Ampoules, 20 pcs.
  • Analog Manometer
  • Digital BalanceUTS-0150 2
  • Hammer
  • Chisel
