P-2000

The P-2000 is an electrical resistance-type moisture meter, utilizing the relationship between moisture content and electrical resistance. The contact pins mounted on the top of the meter are used for making direct contact with the material. Various external electrodes are also available for specific applications. The P-2000 is especially useful for testing paperboard, corrugated stock, and paper tubes. It is ideal for plant superintendents, inspectors, buyers, and salespeople.

MCS-2.jpg

MCS-2

This moisture content standard is great for verifying that your P-2000 or RDM-3P paper moisture meters are in calibration. With two electrical resistance values (6% and 10%) to test your meter against, you can be sure that your readings will stand up to the strictest standards of accuracy. The MCS-2 is also available with a letter of certification traceable to NIST.

Please Note:

For P-2000 meters with serial numbers up to 19389, please order the MCS-2

For P-2000 meters with serial numbers of 19390 and above, please order the MCS-2X.
