    Significance and Use

    4.1 This test method provides a rapid determination for moisture in particulate wood fuels in several minutes. The standard method, E871, requires a minimum of 18 h. This method is applicable to situations such as the spot-check of the moisture delivered by truck where a quick indication of the moisture of wood delivered is desirable.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method provides an alternative method to Method E871, for the determination of the moisture of particulate wood fuels. Particulate wood fuels are defined in E1126.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
