Microwave, microprocessor technologies power aggregate moisture meter

The Aggrameter T-T-100 taps the latest microwave and microprocessor offerings to measure moisture content in various fine and coarse-grained materials. Probe prongs are inserted into the material and moisture content percentage is instantaneously shown on the easy to read display. An average of five to 10 readings is normally taken in order to ensure a valid measurement. The output is converted by the integrated microprocessor and the moisture content displayed directly as a percentage of dry weight.

The Aggrameter is calibrated for sand and coarse aggregate; programmable for measuring up to 10 different materials; and, can store more than 150 readings, complete with time and date for future reference. Data can be recalled via USB interface to a personal computer. — James Instruments Inc., 773/463-6565, 800/426-6500; www.ndtjames.com
