Moisture Analysers & Meters for Agricultural Use
Inscale offer a selection of high-quality moisture analysers and digital moisture meters manufactured by A&D, Reed and Adam Equipment. Our analysers and meters are frequently used in the agricultural and farming industry for measuring grain, vegetables, crops and moisture content in soil.
Moisture analysers are highly-sophisticated pieces of equipment that include a built-in halogen bulbs for uniform heating and drying of organic samples. Lab and food testing technicians often use moisture analysers for determining the moisture content in food samples and ingredients such as wheat, barley and wholegrains used in cereals, biscuits and bread.
Moisture meters are compact, portable devices that are used to perform moisture testing whilst on the move. Whilst pin moisture meters require steel probes to penetrate the sample, pinless moisture meters can determine moisture content in plants and other samples without damage.
It is vitally important that moisture is regularly monitored to ensure quality, taste and texture; too little moisture can cause products such as biscuits to break apart, whilst too much moisture can lead to premature growth of bacteria and mould.

Q: What is the difference between pin and pinless moisture meters?
A: Pinless moisture meters allow the user to test a sample using a non-destructive testing method, which essentially prevents damage from being done to the sample. In contrast, pin moisture meters include 2-4 steel probes that are used to penetrate a given sample. Once the probes have penetrated the sample, an electrical current is ran between the probes to obtain the resistance, this is then interpreted into a moisture content value.
