Calculating ball densities:
Measure the length, width and height of the bale in inches. Multiply these figures and divide the product by 1,728. The result will be the volume of the bale in cu. ft. Next find the weight of the bale. Then divide the weight by the volume calculated below, and you will have the bale density.
Bale dimensions: 18 in. x 18 in. x 36 in.
Bale weight: 60 lb.
Calculation: 18 x 18 x 36 = 11664 cu. ft.
60 / 6.75 = 8.88 lb. / cu. ft.
Chcking and changing the scale:
Before taking the measurement always remember to check, if you are using the correct scale. The complete list of the scales is located on the side label of the tester. There is an additional -0- scale in the tester. -0- scale is used by the service department to calibrate the testers.
Checking the scale:
Switch the tester on with a single press on the POWER - button. The number of the present scale, for example -1-, will appear on the display. If the scale is correct, keep waiting. You will see run on the display and in a moment the meter will turn off. Now the meter is ready for use.
Before carrying out the measurement mix the collected sample properly.
Changing the scale
If you need to change the scale, switch the tester on with a single press on the POWER - button. The number of the present scale, for example -1-, will appear on the display. When the number of the scale is displayed, you can change the scale by pushing the FUNCTION - button. When the number of the correct scale is displayed, keep waiting. You will see RUN on the display and in a moment the tester will turn off. Now the meter is ready for use.
