Product Information

You’ll get all the features and benefits of the lightweight waterless 5500 Meter with a few added benefits.

  • PIG Screen (Probability of Ignition)
  • FDFM Screen (Fine Dead Fuel Moisture)

Advantage over the Kestrel 3000 & Kestrel 3500FW models: You won’t need to calibrate this meter! Kestrel AU will stand by this and other 5000 series models to hold calibration within drift for 5 years.  Kestrel AU will repair, recalibrate or replace any defective product within the warranty period.  “Defective” includes measurements outside of our accuracy spec plus stated drift.

RH (Relative Humidity):

  • Accuracy:  +/- 2%RH
  • Sensors:  10 to 90% 25°C non-condensing
  • Calibration Drift: Typically less than +/- 0.25% per year!

To achieve stated accuracy, unit must be permitted to equilibrate to external temperature when exposed to large, rapid temperature changes and be kept out of direct sunlight.
