Equilibrium Moisture Content – What is it? [EMC]
You’ve no doubt heard or seen the term equilibrium moisture content, or “EMC” as it’s referred to sometimes. Put simply, EMC is the moisture level where a hygroscopic material neither gains nor loses moisture since it is at equilibrium with the surrounding environment.
Ron explains the term as well as introducing the Orion 950 Smart Pinless Wood Moisture Meter as an effective tool to calculate EMC. Determining EMC is a click away.
