Inline Grain Moisture Meter offers accurate real-time measurement.

May 24, 2016

Using low-power microwaves to penetrate surface every 0.2 sec, PCE-A-315 obtains interior moisture readings from grain without causing any damage. Measurement range is 5%–40% during continuous mass flow, and error is ±0.5% from 5%–18% grain moisture. Due to integrated temperature probe, readings are accurate from 41 to 131°F. Analyzer supports connection to evaluation software, data loggers, process controllers, and complete process control systems through RS485 and 4–20 mA interfaces. Read More
