We are excited to introduce our newest partner, Delmhorst Instrument Co. , to our team. They have built a reputation for designing, manufacturing and marketing the highest quality moisture meters on the market for a variety of industries.

Did you know there are two types of moisture meters used with lumber? One uses pins or needles that are inserted into the piece of wood being tested and the other has a plate that must be in good contact with the wood.

Which meter is best? It depends on what information you are looking for, such as moisture gradients. Likewise, the meter must be one your employees will use. Learn more by visiting Delmhorst's blog .
