This test method covers the quantitative determination of moisture content by means of loss in weight in particulate wood fuels down to 0.05% (w/w) using a rapid loss-on-drying analyzer.
Rapid loss-on-drying analyzers provide an alternative to traditional oven drying methods for determination of moisture. Test times may be decreased, and they facilitate the automatic collection and storage of test data. In most cases the results are equivalent to oven methods. This standard is useful for quality control for pellet manufacturers.
