Agricultural Moisture Meters

Single grain moisture tester for grains and seed moisture.

This machine tests each individual seed and then provides a histogram detailing the distribution of moisture within a sample, as well as the average moisture of the sample and the moisture content of each seed. There are calibrations for rice, wheat and barley.

This machine replaces our PQ510 single seed moisture tester – which was long recognized as the standard for single grain moisture testing.

See: PQ520 for the brochure or PQ520 Spanish for the Spanish brochure.

The PB-3000 is a rice and grain moisture tester initially intended to measure the moisture content of rice imported to Japan. The base unit has been modeled after the PB-1D2 rice and grain moisture tester which is used by many companies and is highly valued for its precision and durability.

In response to rice importation from various countries around the world, calibrations with in this instrument will measure short, medium, and long grain rice. In addition domestic (Japanese) brown and polished rice moisture can also be measured. Finally, calibrations are included for pasta, tapioca flour and corn flour.

Please select the proper model for your applications.
