Rapid Moisture Meter, For quick determination of moisture content of materials in powder form viz. soil, sand, coal, pottery slip, cement etc. Calcium Carbide when comes in contact with moisture acetylene gas in generate. This principle is used in Rapid Moisture Meter. A weighted quantity of sample is mixed with fixed quantity of Calcium Carbide reagent and the whole mixture is thoroughly skaken in a vessel to which a pressure gauge is fixed. The acetylene gas produced developes pressure and pressure gauge is cablibrated to read percentage moisture. The instrument indicates moisture on wet/weight BLS easily convertible to dry weight basis.
complete with pressure vessel, counterpoised balance, bottle of reagent in polished wooden box.
