Kett, the world’s leading manufacturer of award-winning portable handheld moisture meters and rice testing instrumentation, announced today the introduction of the PR930 Portable Instant Flour Moisture and Grain Moisture Meter. This handheld, battery-powered instrument provides laboratory quality moisture measurements of rice flour, wheat flour, whole rice and wheat kernels that anyone can obtain by simply turning a small handle.  Instant, accurate moisture tests allow users to optimize buy/sell transactions, rice and wheat milling and processing applications, and to maintain optimal flour and grain quality standards. 

The PR930 will be on display at the 2014 International Powder and Bulk Solids Exhibition (PTXI) May 6 to 8 in Rosemont Illinois, at Booth 2710.

Traditional moisture meters require the user to dry a sample over time, meaning the sample is altered or destroyed and the measurement location limited to laboratories and process plants where electricity is available. The PR930 uses the same compact housing and measurement technology as our industry standard Riceter rice moisture testers.  To conduct a measurement, a small sample is put into the sample tray, the tray inserted into the instrument and the crank twisted.  The measurement button is pressed and the moisture measurement is immediately shown on the large LC Display.  Samples may be quickly discarded and another test immediately taken.  There's no need to pre-process the sample, allowing for unsurpassed versatility.  In addition to the rice flour calibration,  the PR930 is similar to the PR920 Instant Flour moisture meter and includes calibrations for wheat flour, rice flour, wheat kernels and long grain and short grain rice (milled and paddy rice).  A  list of product calibrations, moisture measurement ranges and the lab method used for calibration may be viewed at:  PR930 Flour Moisture Meter Calibration List

The PR930 is  the latest in instrument innovations from Kett, a leader in moisture meters, organic composition meters, rice, grain and seed measurement for more than 65 years. The PR930 is for use in field, laboratory, and near-line process control applications where quick, accurate evaluations are required. The PR930 is battery powered. 

Kett stands this instruments with our Total Care Warranty, covering parts, labor and specification compliance.
