Speedy Moisture Tester

The Speedy Moisture Tester supports the following standards: ASTM D4944, AASHTO T217

The Series 2000 Speedy Moisture Tester is a portable system for measuring the moisture content of a wide range of materials including soils, aggregates, dust and powders (and liquids).

The Speedy Moisture Tester system consists of a low pressure vessel fitted with a pressure gauge and an electronic scale and test accessories. Moisture measurements are made by mixing a weighed sample of the material with a calcium carbide reagent in the sealed pressure vessel. Includes durable case.

The reagent reacts chemically with water in the sample, producing acetylene gas that in turn increases the pressure within the vessel. The pressure increase in the vessel is proportional to the amount of water in the sample, the moisture content can be read directly from the calibrated pressure gauge. The tester is supplied complete with heavy-duty plastic carrying case, electronic balance, beaker, cleaning cloth, cap, washer, scoop, steel pulverizing balls and cleaning brushes.

H-4967 complies with ASTM D4944 and AASHTO T217.
H-4968 does not comply with ASTM D4944 and AASHTO T217, and does not come with the steel pulverizing balls.

Ship wt. 13 lbs. (5.9kg). See Warning Below.

Accuracy: Within 0.5% on most materials
Test Speed: 45 sec. to 3 min., depending on material
Gauge: Calibrated from 0-20% moisture based on wet weight
Balance: Electronic; 0-7 oz (0-200g) range; battery operated

Danger of explosion/fire may result if Moisture Testing Reagent is allowed contact with moisture. Calcium carbide forms flammable acetylene gas when wet so it must be kept sealed and dry. Provide adequate ventilation and use away from sparks and flame.

Shipping Restrictions
U.S. shipping regulations require ground shipment for Speedy Moisture Testers. Can not ship more than two speedys per order by UPS. H-4966 reagent carton must go truck shipment and incur extra charge for hazardous goods handling. Reagent 2-packs can ship UPS, but multiple packs can not be on same order.

International shipping regulations require separate purchase of reagent, which requires "dangerous goods" papers and packing. For this reason, Speedy Moisture Testers for International ordersdo not contain reagent, order separately.
