Inline Grain Moisture Meter offers accurate real-time measurement.

Press Release Summary:

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.

Original Press Release:

New Inline Moisture Meter for Grain Delivers Exceptional Accuracy and Cost Savings

Jupiter, Fla. – PCE Instruments has introduced a new inline moisture meter, PCE-A-315, that provides exceptionally accurate grain moisture measurement in real time. The PCE-A-315 in-process moisture sensor boasts a measurement range of 5% to 40% for moisture content during continuous mass flow with an error of just ±0.5% from 5% to 18% grain moisture.

In addition to remarkable precision, the PCE-A-315 inline moisture analyzer delivers significant cost savings. The PCE-A-315 lowers energy costs by enabling shorter drying times and reduces labor costs by automating the moisture monitoring process.

Suitable for the continuous monitoring of moisture in corn, soybeans, wheat, rice, sorghum, barley, oats, rye, hops, coffee, cocoa beans, oil seeds, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, poppy seeds, pumpkin seeds, spelt seeds, buckwheat, sesame, peas, fava beans, scarlet runner beans, triticale, amaranth and jatropha, the PCE-A-315 in-process moisture meter uses low-power microwaves to penetrate the surface every 0.2 second and obtain interior moisture readings without causing any damage. An integrated temperature probe ensures the readings are accurate from 41°F to 131°F (5°C to 55°C).

The PCE-A-315 inline moisture sensor can be connected to evaluation software, data loggers, process controllers and complete process control systems through interfaces such as RS 485 and 4-20 mA.

Deployed successfully in hundreds of global grain processing facilities, the PCE-A-315 in-process moisture analyzer has proven to be consistently accurate over time. The unit is nearly maintenance free, as it does not need to be recalibrated very often to guarantee precise readings.

Installation of the PCE-A-315 is straightforward and can be done by the customer with or without remote assistance from PCE Instruments. Onsite installation and technical support services are available throughout the United States, Canada, Western Europe and South America.
