Optional Electrodes
202large 202

For raw cotton, with a friction clutch permitting adjustment of a constant pressure. For measuring bulk goods such as cotton etc.The material is poured into the cup and compressed with the pad of the compression screw. As the material is compressed, it is crushed on the crusher cone to ensure accurate readings. The electrode connects to the moisture meter direct, without the use of the universal measuring cable.
Requires use of additional cable, P/N: 50400CM
