Model AM-III: Paper Moisture Meter


The Model AM-III is a hand-held paper moisture meter used to measure rolls, stacks, or reams. The natural fluctuation of moisture content in paper can cause curl or cracking, a potentially costly problem for producers and consumers of paper products. The Model AM-III delivers an immediate, accurate measurement used to identify damaging moisture shifts before it causes loss of product.

Originally marketed under the Moisture Register brand, the Model AM-III has been sold to more than 1,500 users. A key advantage of this product is a library of frequency and operating modes used to minimize the influence of pH and temperature. Customers experience greater quality and throughput as a result of their improved monitoring of paper moisture levels.

Option 115 VAC for North America, South America, Japan
Option 220 VAC for Australia, Europe and most of Asia
