PFK Moisture meter for paper and solid cardboard at the pile

Made in the EuThe Checkline PFK paper moisture meter quickly determines the absolute water content of paper, board and cellulose. The PFK measures non-destructively, directly on the stack or on a (stationary) roller with a measuring depth of 20 mm. The measuring range of the PFK paper moisture meter is 1% to 15% water content (depending on paper type) with a measurement resolution of 0, 1%.

With the help of the integrated data logger, you can record up to 10,000 measured values. Typical measurement applications include precise inbound inspections and process controls at print shops, as well as at paper traders and corrugated manufacturers.Furthermore, this paper moisture meter is easy to handle and due to its convenient size, the PFK can be deployed anywhere on site.

Measurement procedure:

Turn on the instrument, select the correct calibration curve (based on the density of the paper) and press the instrument onto the material to be measured. The illuminated display immediately shows the measured value.

The Checkline PFK has a memory capacity for the storage of up to 10,000 measured values ​​and offers also the possibility to enter additional data, such as the lot number.

For each series of measurements recorded, the PFK automatically calculates the average value.

Via the optional USB interface, the measured values ​​can be transferred to a PC and via the PC software LogMemorizer® the data can be archived, exported, processed and printed.

1136/5000 Selection of the correct curve
Due to the countless paper types, there are no standard curves.
For the Checkline PFK paper moisture meter, the density of the paper stock or paper roll determines the different curves.
The above overview of the curves contains suggestions for paper types and paper densities [kg / m³].
To achieve an exact measurement result, a one-time comparative measurement is required with your online moisture measurement or by performing the standardized oven method (DIN 287).
1. Measure your paper (on the roll or on the stack) with the available curves which give a realistic value and note the different measurement results with the corresponding characteristic curve names.
2. Now record the actual water content of your online moisture measurement or carry out a determination of the reference water content according to EN ISO 287.
3. Now compare the recorded measurement results of the different curves with the actual water content according to the reference measurement. Now you can select/determine the curve that is most accurate with the reference measurement.
