The Moisture Tester is often compared to the older “Speedy.” Ideal for determining the moisture in fine aggregates and granular materials – soils, sand, clay, and powders – within seconds and in field conditions. No calculations are necessary, the gauge provides direct reading of the chemical reaction between the reagent (calcium carbide) and water to produce acetylene gas pressure.

The Tester has everything needed, including instructions and charts. It will last a lifetime.

The kit comes in a heavy duty plastic case which is water tight, air tight and dust proof, and will protect your Moisture Tester from weather and rough handling. The kit contains vessel with gauge, digital scale, scoop, cleaning brush, cleaning cloth and two steel pulverizing balls.

Meets ASTM D4944, AASHTO T217 BS 6576.

NB: Please note that the Calcium Carbide Reagent used with the Speedy testers must be ordered separately.
