  • If materials are to be used in a process, such as ceramics or concrete manufacture, it is also usually important to know the moisture content before, during and after the process.
  • The Microspear is used for the fast and accurate water content measurement of bulk materials for industry.
  • The instrument measures moisture and temperature of minerals and building materials at depths up to six feet (nearly 2 metres) – simply by insertion.
  • The digital readings are shown instantly.
  • It has a built-in computer which gives it the flexibility to handle a wide range of materials and water contents.

Operation: Simply insert and read the display.

  • The key to the Microspear is the streamlined sensor known for its shape as the warhead.
  • This robust and accurate sensor can penetrate many feet into large loads, which is particularly important as water usually settles in the most inaccessible lower parts of the bulk.
  • The reading is made instantaneously, allowing large quantities of material to be rapidly tested.
  • An ‘Averager’ facility provides a single reading for the whole of the bulk.


  • The ability to rapidly and accurately measure the moisture content of hundreds of tons of material.
  • There is no sampling, use of chemicals, balances or ovens.
  • Used in any environment where minerals or building materials are being shipped, stored or processed.
  • With thousands of users in many industries around the world, the simplicity, speed of use and accuracy have made the Microspear the perfect instrument for bulk moisture measurement.
