- Supertech Moisture Meter for Grain and Seeds

From

0

The Farmpoint is the original Supertech product designed to measure the moisture level of grain and seeds. It provides essential assistance in the field when determining the best time for harvesting and is also used for regular moisture measurement during the drying process and in storage. If grain is harvested wetter than necessary, the consequences are not only extra drying costs but also a significantly increased risk of quality loss and spoilage.

Quick and accurate moisture measurement

  • Handy, robust and easy to operate
  • Reliable results
  • Automatic temperature compensation
  • Automatic calculation of average value
  • High measuring range
  • Adjustment of calibrations
  • High quality – low price
  • Two year warranty
  • Designed and produced in Denmark

Easy to operate

The Farmpoint is a robust tool supplied in a casing made of shockproof ABS plastic. It can be safely transported on the tractor, in the granary, etc.

The Farmpoint Moisture Meter:

Simple to use in four easy steps:

Turn on the tester by pressing the ON/TEST button. Use the arrow keys to select grain type.

Fill the test cell.

Screw on lid until the pressure indicator is level with the top of the lid.

Press the ON/TESTbutton and read the moisture content directly from the display.

Portable and reliable companion

Effective grain storage is essential to maintain crop quality and prevent losses. Reliable moisture management is vital to ensure an optimal storage environment.
Farmpoint is the original whole grain moisture meter that operates using high frequency measurement, compression of the sample and automatic temperature compensation, for more reliable results.

The failproof design makes it easy to test the grain whenever and wherever.

Principle of measurement

The Farmpoint measures the conductivity and temperature of a grain sample. The exact moisture value is calculated by means of an advanced measurement technique, developed through many years of hands-on experience.
The compression and automatic temperature compensation features, ensure high reliability of the Farmpoint for moisture management of grain in the field, during the drying process and in storage.

Average readings

The changing nature of grain when harvested or dried makes average readings a significant advantage. Freshly harvested grain often has greater variability compared to grain stored for some time. Errors are frequently ±0.5% and can be bigger in very wet, very dry or freshly harvested grain.
The Farmpoint can be used to quickly make several separate measurements. Four to five readings will automatically be used to calculate a reliable average value. By using average and calibration adjustment the accuracy can be better than ±0.5%, in the normal moisture range.

To adjust the calibration of the Farmpoint

Farmpoint is factory-calibrated for every crop, using the official methods of measuring moisture content as compiled by ISTA (International Seed Testing Association). The calibration scales are compiled using samples of crops grown in normal conditions. Differing growth factors between years and varieties can have an effect on the electrical characteristics of the crop. It can therefore be necessary to occasionally recalibrate the meter.

Essential tool in Grain Quality Management

Supertech Agroline develops manufactures and sells high quality post-harvest equipment that is sold in more than 50 countries around the world. Many years of hands-on experience give us an unmatched competitive advantage and a unique and reliable product range.

The Farmpoint is just one of our innovative digital moisture meters. Our product range includes moisture analyzers for grain and seeds, hay, straw and silage, biofuels, wood pellets and sawdust as well as temperature monitoring systems.

Like any foodstuff, grain must be protected from contamination. Storage facilities and grain condition are both critical factors. The Farmpoint is an essential tool when it comes to Grain Quality Management. The moisture level is the first thing to check before harvest, during the drying process, and during storage. Keeping the moisture and temperature levels of the harvested crops sufficiently low will lead to a higher quality yield.

Whether you use the crops to feed animals or as ingredients in food products, the increase in quality will not only raise your profits, but also decrease the unnecessary strains on the environment that is usually associated with post-harvest spoilage.
