PF5 Paper moisture meter for determination of absolute water content

Made in the EuMeasuring range: 1% to 25%

Checkline's PF5 Paper moisture meter for determination of absolute water content at the roll for paper manufacturers, paper processors and paper retailers, with infrared temperature measurement for measurements on warm running rolls as well as for receiving inspection on cool rolls.

The Checkline's PF5 is a specially-designed instrument for accurate measurement of moisture content in running paper. The instrument can also be used to measure paper rolls, cardboard and pulp.

The PF5 is equipped with an infrared temperature sensor capable of measuring material temperature up to 125°C. The instrument automatically compensates moisture levels based on material temperature up to 80°C.

The built-in sensor on the rear-side of the gauge provides a measuring range of up to 25% with a measuring resolution of 0.1%.

A datalogger for up to 10,000 readings is provided for recording purposes and the instrument is equipped with a USB output for data transfer.

PF5 provides for Non-destructive measurement through packaging!

The PF5 offers:
- Infrared paper web temperature measurement
- USB data interface module with software for PC   incl.USB cable
- Rechargeable batteries
- Exact determination of the roll temperature
- Precise measurement values due to temperature compensation based on   non-contact temperature measurement
- Easy evaluation of measuring data on PC and printer
- Optimal documentation of your quality

Measuring procedure:

Switch on the PF5, select the right calibration curve (dependent on the paper density) and press the sensor bars of the instrument against the long side of the roll. The illuminated display immediately shows the measuring value. For an average moisture content reading or to identify sections on the roll that are too moist or dry, simply move the device along the entire length of the roll. The PF5 offers a data memory for up to 10,000 measuring values as well as the possibility to enter additional data such as batch number. Via the USB interface, the measurement values can be transferred to a PC and via LogMemorizer® PC software the data can be archived, exported, processed or printed out.
