A set-up has been established to calibrate wood-moisture meters at Danish Technological Institute. The set-up is based on humidification of wood in an atmosphere with constant humidity, generated by saturated salt solutions. The measurements of the reference value are made by means of the loss-on-drying method and made traceable to a primary standard for moisture mass fraction established under the EMRP project METefnet in 2015. The facility was accredited by the Danish Accreditation Fund, DANAK, in 2018. In this paper, we report on the design of the calibration set-up, the uncertainty analysis and the validation by comparison to the primary facility.
