seeds and grain moisture sensor / volumetric water content / high-precision
for seeds and grains
volumetric water content
Designed specifically for use in humidity measurement of bulk material, this moisture sensor is installed in bins, silos, troughs, bunkers case, distributors, screw conveyors and on conveyors. Material in bulk or flowing mass, such as dyes, gravel, sawdust, fly ash (mineral), wood chips (surface to 5 cm) feed grain, flour, seed, pastes, ... is smoothly and continuously measurable in the process.
