A unique device on the market that actually measures water content by measuring hydrogen atoms from free water molecules. From woodchip to mineral slurries, Valmet MR measures virtually any sample containing water regardless of particle size.

Easy calibration with regular tap water, and low maintenance needed with no wearing parts.



Efficiency simply means getting the best possible results with the least effort and expenditure.

Valmet MR is compact and mobile that can be safely transported and operated in various locations and environments. It does not need a fixed location in a laboratory.

Significant savings and profit can be achieved:

  • in biofuel purchasing by determining real heat value
  • through optimized processes and fast troubleshooting
  • through optimized water content of end products

Simple and fast to use

  • Plug-and-play functionality
  • Easy touch-screen user interface



Measurements from large samples

  • Handy reusable sample container size up to 0.8 l (0.2 US gal)
  • Particles may be ~ 80 x 100 mm (3.1” x 3.9”)
  • Multiple measurements from larger volumes can be presented as average results
