Do I need to worry about moisture gradients and wet pockets?
Although the various drying processes for green lumber can leave wet cores and pockets, moisture continues to pass from fiber to fiber within the wood until it has equalized through the whole board, and then to surrounding humidity levels. Determining if a board or load of lumber will equalize within tolerance levels can be difficult and tricky, but Wagner Meters Hand-Held Moisture Meters provide this information automatically.
Penetrating deep into the wood, Wagner Meters mathematically determine equalized moisture content and are capable of allowing you to check, within minutes, a truckload of lumber for specified moisture content. For even more convenience, many companies use their Wagner Meters to read right through the plastic wrapping around the wood on new deliveries before they allow unloading!
