Product Description

Moisture Meter
Test your firewood is fully seasoned.
Then enjoy a fire with less smoke, reduced chimney
deposits & lower environmental pollution.

Improved Efficiency:
Fuel quality is the single most important aspect of making
a successful fire. To burn effectively the moisture content of
firewood needs to be less than 20%, whether it be an open
fire or in a stove.
Freshly felled timber has a moisture content of between
30% and 60%, depending on the type of wood. All wood
should be split and stored under cover from the rain and
open to wind and sun so it can dry for at least one
year, preferably two.
The Valiant moisture meter can also be
used in timber, floors and buildings in
order to detect and measure moisture
content.

Burning wet wood or unseasoned, freshly felled or green wood
dramatically affects the calorific value and causes;
•Heavy soot and tar build up in a chimney or liner
•Smoky chimneys
•Lower heat output
•Potentially corrosive acids in the chimney flue
•Increased likelihood of chimney fire
•Difficulty in getting the fire to burn
•Lower draw on chimneys causing smoke to enter the room
•Dirty stove glass with tar and creosote deposits
•Detrimental effects on the environment
The burning of low grade fuel can also invalidate
warranties of expensive stainless steel chimney liners.
