Grain and seed moisture meter: Humitest for food industry

Quality and quantity of agricultural products go notably through their water content measurement. Coffee, cocoa, linseed, sesame, poppy, soya, sorghum, pumpkin as well as rice, these grains become more and more invaluable.
Domosystem adds to its on site range of instruments to measure their water content and temperature.

Optimising output and quality of agricultural productions

Scarcity and high prices of earth products are extra reasons to optimise their quality. Their monitoring contributes to improve their output and maintain their environmental impact at the same time.

All along the food industry chain -production, storage, processing or transport-, moisture content measurement is an obligatory step in quality monitoring of grain and seeds.

Measuring water content helps to decide and act to:
- choose the time of harvest,
- monitor the drying process,
- check storage conditions,
- fix prices,
- optimise processing and valorisation.

An on site moisture meter to save time and money

To be able to measure moisture content precisely, three parameters are significant:
- the representativeness of the sample,
- the reliability of the instrument used for measuring,
- the compliance of the operational mode by the person who measures.

The oven dry method is the reference test to measure grain and seed water content, but it is costly and time consuming.
Designed for instant and reliable measurements on site, the moisture meters for grain marketed by Domosystem are calibrated according to the oven dry method.

Calibrated for several types of grain and seeds, the Humitest for food industry is an addition to the range of moisture meters that allow the measurement of agricultural solid biomass. The priority of the players of the business is a simple and quick moisture measure.

Fitted with a measuring chamber, the new moisture meter allows to measure water content and temperature of grain such as coffee, wheat, sesame, rice or sorghum, as well as cocoa beans or poppy, pumpkin and linseeds.

- The user weighs the sample he has poured in the measuring chamber,
- He selects one of the available calibrations and adjusts the weight of the sample to the selected calibration curve. Then, precise moisture content and temperature display instantly.
