The PCE-A-315-WD (WD=without display) inline moisture meter provides exceptionally accurate grain moisture measurement in real time. The PCE-A-315-WD 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. One display can be attached to two sensors maximum.

In addition to remarkable precision, the PCE-A-315-WD inline moisture analyzer delivers significant cost savings. The PCE-A-315-WD 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-WD 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-WD 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.
