Wiltronics Fine Fuel Moisture Instrument (ME2000) is specifically designed to be used in the field by officers involved in prescribed burns and wildfires, and provide valuable moisture measurements to assist in determining the burn rate for forest floor fine fuel.

An example of the Fuel Moisture Instrument in use is when Fire managers at wildfire or prescribed burns need to be able to measure fuel moisture content quickly and accurately at the site of the fire.

The Fuel Moisture Instrument can assist Fire managers by determining the percentage of moisture content of fine fuels (leaf matter/forest duff) which will help establish the rate at which fires will spread and how likely spot fires will develop.

The Fuel Moisture Instrument provides vital information along with wind speed and direction, current and forecast weather conditions all need to be taken into account when planning a prescribed fire or fighting wildfires.
