After consulting with Munter's Moisture Control, we purchased a moisture
meter and electrode made by Delmhorst Instrument Company from

    Paul N. Gardner Company, Inc.
    316 North East First Street
    Pompano Beach, FL 33060

The meter is model G-78, and the electrode is model 19-E. The
Gardner Company has many models of meters and electrodes available,
so you may want to speak with them about how to choose one that best
fits your needs. I chose the models indicated above because they
function similarly to the Aqua Boy moisture meter with which I am
familiar. Both are used to determine the percent moisture content in
a stack of paper, or a bound volume. The instrument is part of our
emergency preparedness kit.
