Test the moisture content present in corrugated boxes with a moisture meter

moisture content checker

Corrugated boxes are an essential packaging solution widely used in various industries, ensuring the safe transportation of goods. Moisture can significantly impact the structural integrity and overall performance of these boxes throughout their lifecycle. By assessing the moisture content, manufacturers can identify potential weaknesses or vulnerabilities that may compromise the box's strength and stability during storage or transportation. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality moisture meter that can be used to test the moisture content of paper, corrugated sheets and other related materials.

This testing instrument can accurately measure the content of moisture quickly and ensure that quality products will be delivered to the customers. In this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Presto moisture meter and its advanced features that make it easy to test the moisture content.

Importance of testing the moisture content of corrugated boxes

As we have discussed above corrugated boxes, a ubiquitous packaging solution utilized across industries, serve the vital purpose of safeguarding products during transportation and storage. However, to ensure their functionality and integrity are not compromised, it becomes imperative to assess the moisture content within these boxes. Moisture is a formidable adversary that can infiltrate packaging materials, leading to potential damages.

Thus, testing the corrugated box against moisture will help the manufacturers in determining the quality of these boxes and ensuring that quality materials will be delivered to the customers. We at Presto have a digital model of a moisture meter that can accurately test the quality of boxes with its high-quality features.

Moisture meters can easily revolutionize the industry of paper and packaging and ensure that no product will get damaged during transportation and shipping.

Tips to maintain Presto moisture meter

To ensure the proper maintenance of your moisture meter, it's essential to follow these tips, each of which contributes to the instrument's longevity and accuracy:

  1. Proper Storage: Store your moisture meter in a clean, dry place. The provided protective carrying case is an ideal storage solution when the meter is not in use. This prevents dust, moisture, and debris from affecting its performance.

  2. Battery Replacement: Regularly check and change the 9-volt battery as needed. Using the meter with a low battery can lead to inaccurate readings and potential calibration issues. It's a simple yet crucial step to maintain its reliability.

  3. Pin Care: Change the contact pins as required and ensure that pin retainers are hand-tightened. Worn or damaged pins can compromise the accuracy of moisture measurements. Keeping them in good condition is vital for precise results.

  4. Cleaning Routine: Clean the meter, contact pins, and probes with a biodegradable cleaner. It's important to use the cleaner sparingly and apply it only to the external parts of the instrument. Regular cleaning prevents contaminants from affecting the device's functionality.

  5. Extended Non-Use: If you anticipate that the meter will not be used for a month or longer, it's advisable to remove the battery. This prevents potential battery leakage, which can damage the meter's internal components.

By following these maintenance tips, you can ensure that your moisture meter remains in excellent working condition, providing accurate results for your testing needs. Proper care prolongs the life of this valuable testing instrument.
