On the HB300 universal moisture tester, do you use wet-based moisture or dry-based moisture from the lab method for calibration?

Either wet-based moisture or dry-based moisture may be used.  We recommend wet-based as it is a linear scale.  If dry-based moisture is used as the referee method, a smaller moisture range is recommended for the calibration because it is non-linear.
