Timber Moisture Analyzers

Timber Moisture Analyzers (also known as Timber Moisture Meters) are used to analyze the condition and measure the moisture levels in various materials, equipment, and structures. They perform quick, routine tests that help improve products and hastens the time in which a company may want to release their inventions. By testing the moisture levels, one may be able to determine whether or not a product is suitable for putting into the market. If the moisture levels are too high, the product may not be ready for use in structures as the materials warp in different moist environments. This information is inestimable in value when putting industry standards into scope; every customer wants a good product, but overall a safe and dependable product.

GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers are reliable, first-class devices that can be used to detect moisture accumulation in the material before it can cause irreversible damage to future structures and equipment. They are designed to perform at the finest degree, which is paramount to any capital ranking company or top-notch woodworker. Where one analyzer may not test as well, GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers can make up for where they lack. These devices are ideal for testing various woods that require higher accuracy in consideration to what purpose the material will be assigned to. Without a well-functioning analyzer, one can put their business at risk. GAOTek is a reliable company that produces the most affordable solutions to your technical needs, and GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers are no exception to our excellence.


Moisture is defined as a liquid diffused in small quantities of vapor, either within a solid or condensed onto a surface. This vapor can be harmful as materials may change physical form depending on the moisture within. A moisture analyzer can help one to detect any signs of moisture, which can aid in the prevention of faulty products or structures.

GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers are innovative and use high-frequency electromagnetic wave inductions to effectively measure the levels of moisture within a material. By creating a current, the device creates a potential electrical field which aims to determine the spatial resistivity distribution within the sampled material. Based on this measurement, our analyzers are able to calculate the moisture levels at a constant rate.

To meet new manufacturing criteria, it is essential to have an effective moisture analyzing device. Moisture content standards are specified by both industry trade associations and regulatory authorities, and it is key to have the most accurate readings. GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers can be used to help meet a collection of industry standards. Given the requirements or modern day certifications, it is an understatement to say how important it is to have a reliable analyzer on hand. A few of these standards are as follows:

l  ASTM Standard Test Methods for Direct Moisture Content Measurement of Wood and Wood-Based Materials (ASTM D4442-16)

l  ASTM Standard Test Method for Laboratory Standardization and Calibration of Hand-Held Moisture Meters (ASTM D4444-13)

l  ASTM Standard Guide for Moisture Conditioning of Wood and Wood-Based Materials (ASTM D4933-16)

l  ASTM Standard Test Methods for Standardization and Calibration of In-Line Dry Lumber Moisture Meters (ASTM D6782-13)

l  ASTM Standard Practice for Field Calibration and Application of Hand-Held Moisture Meters (ASTM D7438-13)

As standards change, our devices evolve. GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers are the best choice when it comes to meeting industry standards and more.


GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers are top-of-the-line devices which vaunt an impressive combination of valuable features. With a focus on the crucial aspects of an analyzer, we also include additional attractive characteristics to our equipment. Our devices include features such as:

l  Portability: It is portable, compact, and easy to use and the moisture measurement readings are instant.

l  Bright Display: It has an attractive LCD display with a backlight which gives it an exact and clear reading although one may find their self in low-light conditions

l  Constant Effectiveness: It will save time and expense by monitoring dryness which helps to prevent deterioration & decay caused by moisture whilst in storage, therefore processing of the material will be more convenient and efficient.

l  Auto Temperature Compensation: The moisture meter operates by electrical resistance and has automatic temperature compensation

l  Auto Power Off: Automatically powers off after 5 minutes following the last operation

l  Low Battery Alert: Our device will alert the user should the battery be running low, which prevents unsuspected accidents should the sensor cease to function from lack of power

l  Data Hold Function: The analyzer has the ability to maintain data within its system, which allows users more time to record important data

l  Modern Technical Support: GAOTek Timber Moisture Analyzers are equipped with the most advanced sensors.

l  Wide Measuring Range: Suitable for coarse woods, different types of dry plank, and overall a large variety of timber products with a measurement range of 0 to 100%.

l  Lightweight Product: The devices weigh approx. 200 grams, are about 160mm thick, are small in size, and are suitable for onsite use.

l  Non-Destructive Testing: With the abolition of probe insert, you now only need to lightly touch the probe to the measured surface. This will display the current moisture content of wood, and will not damage the test object.

l  Intuitive and Convenient: Adjusts accordingly to determine the different depths of the sample and updates with a high-quality digital display.

l  Simple and Quick: The analyzer will calculate moisture levels on contact, and ensures that the moisture content of the various species is accurately determined.

l  Integrated Structure: the probe and the device are within one body, avoiding the fault caused by the cables.
