SLW Textile Moisture Meter

Measuring range: 0.3% to 26.0% moisture content

The SLW moisture meter is an instrument used to determine humidity in textile, natural and synthetic fabrics and yarns. The moisture content of fabrics and yarns has a direct influence on the tensile strength and elasticity of the material. The SLW moisture meter allows you to determine the water content of fabrics and yarns during the production process within only a few seconds.

Integrated calibration curves for different textile types are included which allows the SLW to directly display the measurement in the "Moisture" menu. This eliminates the need for seperate tables. Besides, this ensures the highest accuracy with minimal effort and it reduces the risk of errors.

There are additional calibration curves available for acetate, acrylic, hemp yarn, jute yarn, cotton, nylon, polyester, viscose, flex and wool.

  • Wide measuring range of 0.3% to 26% moisture content
