Portable Moisture Meter MK30 - Deep Moisture

Main Specifications

• a new special instrument for thick materials, penetrates to 30 mm in most materials
• applications in laboratory, field and on-line troubleshooting in slow webs
• light weight 1.2 kg Compact, 1,9 kg Regular model, structure IP 67

• three high-contrast displays and a diaphragm keyboard
• operating period of 9 hours without battery recharging.
• measuring distance 0 (requires contact), area approximately 40 mm in diameter
• shows a trend curve of recent history, continuously, 64 points on display
• display's background colour may indicate crossing of preset moisture levels (high/low selected by user)
• when Autotimer is sampling, the center display changes colour
• Autotimer is turned on with the "+" key or with a separate button in the handle or by external software command
• switch with a key to a big numeric display
• the recipe system for quickly switching to another regular measuring position. A label and a specific calibration table is associated with each recipe. Changing with a single key press. The table and label are shown in data files and tags.

• very low noise level in signal
• superior long-term stability, based on Visilab's extremely stable technology
• simple to use but has a great number of features

• Marker key for adding a peak to moisture value while measuring and saving a data series to a bank. This can be used for marking start/end of some interesting period
• Flash calibration for generating new calibrations in field conditions. Only the basis weight of material required to get a working calibration. Fine tuning can be done to it after that and it is ready for measuring in a few seconds

• zeroing of the moisture reading if the difference only is of importance, referring to a sample

• variants exist according to use:

    Compact for smaller size and narrower moisture range

    •  Regular for accurate wide moisture range operation

    • version W for extra wide moisture range for both variants

• has useful data capture features, a large data memory
• free intelligent software AK30, ATOM and AK30Mini with graphics, calibration tables, statistics, data retrieval.
• low power mode when not in active use for saving energy
• interfaces available:
    • keyboard and display
    • Bluetooth serial port for PC

• measuring speed is 3..6 Hz and output is 5 Hz for moisture data
• suitable for pulp, corrugated, paper and board plus many other materials, like textiles, felts
• excellent for off-line quality control, complaint validation etc.

• if dry weight percent is required for measurements, just turn the measuring unit to DRY-% and it will automatically convert the reading, no specific calibration required
• if dryness percent is required for measurements, just turn the measuring unit to YDRYNESS and it will automatically convert the reading, no specific calibration here either

• data displayed on the colour displays and collected to PC with the AK30, AK30Mini, IRMA7Basic or the optional Advanced program:   Check updates..
• our price beats the competition
• designed and manufactured by Visilab in Finland

Tips for Users:

   • to keep the meter's battery fully charged, please keep it connected to the charger, power turned off, when not using it. In this way you will ensure that the meter is always ready when you will need it. Even if the battery would be fully charged, it is trickle-charged to keep it full; no harm is done.

    • avoid running the meter's battery completely empty. Recharging it would require more time than expected since the Lithium Ion battery needs a refreshing initial charging before actual charge is put into it. Also, do not take as real the charge indicators if the battery has been run empty. Let it charge overnight to be sure.


    • A special version MK30-W Compact for high moistures and basis weights
    • A special version MK30-W Regular for extremely high moistures and basis weights
    • a carrying case -CARMK at a very economical price. Keeps the meter protected and ready for use.
    • Advanced software license for an extended PC program
    • Moisture standard -STDMK for regular checking for long-term stability

Packing List of a Standard Product Shipping:

    • Model MK30 Compact or Regular meter with calibrations according to customer samples plus some other useful ones
    • User's guides in a binder
    • Software in a USB memory stick, full documentation in PDF format
   • model -PSMK power supply (classified), with an instrument cable of 1.2 m of length. The supply has an IEC320 connector for wall power having a nationalized end plug, if possible. The default delivery will have the flat standard European plug if the target is unknown.
    • Bluetooth dongle and software for connection to a PC. The operating distance may be up to 100 m in good conditions. Now we are shipping a new RN41-based system which is a snap to install and use.

This relieves the pulp machine personnel from running with a grabber and samples while checking the current moisture level of the running web. Just go to the web with the meter and take the reading. No more waiting for hours to get the reading from the laboratory, it is instant.
