Have been on the look out for a product that reads the moisture in sand, and what we call...pap which is the finer crushed chio metal.the product would be to read moisture to be used in concrete,what are your thoughts ?
No, our understanding is that this needs a certain amount of density to work accurately.

Kent Digital Wood Moisture Gauge

Easy to use.

Exactly what I expected.

I was sold damp wood last winter and decided to not to get caught again so bought the moisture gauge. It is simple to use and does what it says it will. The only problem is keeping track of the various friends with bad memories who borrow it.

Very useful tool

I'm selling firewood, so this is useful to be able to show the moisture content of the wood. Quick and easy to use. And comes with a battery.

Must have for dodgy firewood

I wish we’d had that this prior to purchasing a load of firewood.It was sold as blue gum dried. After checking with the Kent Gauge, the majority of pieces were over 20% moisture content and some were low 30s! It’s a great tool to check firewood before trying to burn and saves a lot of time and angst trying to get the fire roaring.
