PCE-A-315 In-Process Moisture Sensor for Grain
5% to 40% moisture content measuring range during continuous mass flow
The PCE-A-315 inline or in-process moisture sensor 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, green 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 interface of 4-20 mA.
