The TS-0155 Speedy Moisture Tester is used to determine the moisture content of soils, sand and fine aggregates in the field. It is an easy and portable method. The amount of gas, which is given off when water and calcium carbide are mixed and react, is directly proportional to the amount of water present in the sample. Results as a moisture percentage are taken from a pressure gauge.
This model is used for moisture determination of a 20 g specimen with 20% maximum moisture content. TS-0155 Speedy Moisture Tester does not include Calcium Carbide Powder.
