Does temperature affect the instant moisture measurement reading on the KJT130

Kett Support asked 5 years ago

We are using the KJT 130 on a paper coater. We would like to get the real-time moisture level (when the coating is running) of the paper before coating and after coating. The paper is room temperature before coating, but it may be at a higher temperature after coating (because we IR dry the paper). I was wondering will paper temperature affect the accuracy of reading? It looks like the KJT-130 reading shows more offset when measuring our paper after coating.

Temperature doesn’t affect the reading … unless the actual paper moisture is altered because of the temperature.  If you are measuring coated vs uncoated, they should be two separate calibrations.
