Your benefits

ATTENTION: Especially for small, packed or sewn products we recommend the humimeter RH5 (Category Paper/Board)

Handling / measuring procedure

After selecting the appropriate calibration curve (depending on the leather density), press the humimeter LM6 on a leather pile with a thickness of at least 10mm. The display immediately shows the absolute leather moisture as well as the temperature. The measuring procedure does not destroy the leather surface in any way. By effecting various measurements in different areas of the leather hide, the average water content can be determined immediately


Benefit from the non-destructive measuring method and optimise your drying costs as well as servicing times by detecting eventual moisture fluctuations or moisture spots in time. The measuring values can be stored on the device, further information like batch number can be added. Via the optional USB interface the measuring values can be transferred to a PC, and via LogMemorizer ® PC software the data can be archived, exported, processed or printed out.
