  • Online moisture measurement, handheld and desktop instruments
  • Non-Contact Moisture Meters no contamination
From the field to the grain elevator and processor, we offer measurement solutions.  Kett’s roots are in the grain industry, starting with handheld rice and grain analyzers that were developed in the 1940’s. Numerous handheld, desktop and on-line analyzers are available for both specific grain products and generic testing. All systems include a three-year warranty.
INDUSTRY APPLICATION DESCRIPTION
Farming Field Moisture Instant portable test for wheat, oats, rice, soy and many other grains and seeds
Agriculture Grain Elevator Single Grain Analyzers provide a complete statistical description of grain samples
Agribusiness Various Process Points Grain Sorters for quick and accurate quality assessment

PM650 Portable Grain Moisture and Seed Moisture Tester

PM650 – Advanced Portable Seed Moisture and Grain Moisture Meter
The latest release after 65 years of manufacturing handheld moisture analyzers for grain, seed, and other agricultural needs, the PM650 provides non-destructive moisture measurement in less than 10 seconds with no sample preparation.  Battery powered, the PM650 can be used in the field to optimize harvest, at auctions to assess product quality, and in the receiving area to ensure supplier compliance…before introducing the product into your facility. Simply select the product on the large LCD, pour the grain or seed into the top opening and the moisture value is immediately displayed.  Over 150 calibrations are included with the PM650.  If a custom calibration is needed, contact us!

PQ520 – Single Kernel Grain Moisture Tester
PQ520 tests each grain kernel for moisture content. Factory calibrations are provided for rice moisture, wheat moisture, and barley moisture. A histogram showing the distribution of moisture content within the sample is automatically produced so that immediate decisions can be made regarding product quality, homogeneity and process optimization.

Optional printer and the ability to test 1000 kernels in less than 5 minutes provides any company interested in harvest or processing quality the ability to get fast, accurate, documented results.

HOW IT WORKS

A Near-Infrared Light Source is reflected off of the liquid or solid sample. The light resonates with the appropriate molecule(s) and a portion of the light is absorbed. The higher the measured component, the higher the amount of absorbed light. After calibration, the composition values can be instantly measured without sample preparation.  Multiple organic components are measured in single test.

Calibrations and calibration points are stored within the analyzers, providing tremendous versatility for the diversified manufacturer. Moisture, protein, fat, cellulose and other organic compounds can be measured.

SAMPLE INDUSTRIES AND APPLICATIONS

INDUSTRY APPLICATION DESCRIPTION
Food Product Optimization and consistency Ensure that suppliers are providing the product required for shelf-life stability (acceptable water activity) and profitability
Pulp/Paper Dryer Cans Analyze the web for wet streaks and uneven drying - without contact or sample alteration.
Chemicals Tunnel Dryers Instant analysis optimizes dryer efficiency and production throughput.
Pharmaceuticals Fluid-bed and Spray Dryers On-line and in-line moisture measurement improves granulation consistency.
Polymer Films Process Control Optimization Online/inline measurement of the moisture content substantially reduces energy used in the process while ensuring appropriate low levels of moisture are achieved.
