Any product that is made from paper or cardboard is susceptible to moisture damage. This is because the paper fibers absorb water, causing the product to swell and become distorted. In addition, moisture can also lead to the growth of mold, which can further degrade the quality of the product. As a result, it is essential to test for moisture content before delivering any paper or cardboard products to customers. Thus, we at Presto have come up with one of the high-quality lab testing instruments known as the moisture meterThis testing equipment is used to provide you with the accurate analysis of moisture absorbed by products over a period of time.

The Presto handheld moisture meter can easily detect the moisture content of products irrespective of their shape, and size. The corrugated box manufacturers can easily determine the presence of moisture in the box and can prevent it by improving the box quality. This lab testing instrument has been worked on several modes of operation that helps to easily operate this testing equipment. Here we are going to discuss brief information for these modes. But first, let us discuss the four modes that will be present in the Presto moisture meter. So, let us get started!
