Learn moreFor many industries, it is very necessary to determine moisture content. For example, in concrete, tiles, wood, restoration, etc. you must have to determine the moisture content. There are different methods for determining moisture content and among them determining moisture content using moisture meter is the most popular way. For this purpose, you must have a clear idea about the moisture meter reading chart or different types of moisture reading scales.

Reference ScaleThe moisture reading scales are designed to determine a specific, quantitative amount of moisture content (%MC) in a specific type of material. The reference scale helps to provide a qualitative estimation of moisture in different types of materials. Some moisture meters use a range from 0-100 and some use a range from 0-300 in the reference scale. There are several ways to use a moisture meter with a reference scale, such as-
- The reference scale is designed to use for different materials. So, you do not need a different reference scale to measure the moisture content of different materials. A single reference scale is enough for measuring the moisture content of different materials.
- Reference scales are preferred more to determine whether the material is too dry or too wet. Taking the reading of dry material you can use it as a reference in the future.
- It can be used to check the available moisture content in the soil. A popular moisture meter called
