humimeter RP6
Moisture meter for waste paper bales


Moisture meter for the determination of moisture in waste paper / recycling paper and for the detection of moisture spots in recycling paper bales.

Measurement of compressed bales, roles and pulp possible. Measuring range of 1 to 50% water content, measuring depth 500mm. Furthermore it is possible to connect external sensors to the humimeter RP6.


Use the optionally available humidity and temperature sensor to measure environmental parameters and many other important paper key figures quickly and efficiently.


To measure loose paper or cardboard, use the optionally available 0.3 meter long insertion probe.

Measuring procedure:

Start your humimeter RP6 by pushing the black button on the handle of the device. Choose the right calibration curve (e.g. 350 recycling paper) and press the measuring plate against the waste paper bale. The display immediately shows the water content and temperature. Now additional information like supplier’s data and notes can be added. The measuring values can be stored at the humimeter RP6 and sent to a PC if required.

Furthermore the measuring results can be printed out on the spot via the optionally available portable thermo printer. For the determination of many other relevant process parameters, a humidity and temperature sensor can be connected.
