Kett Introduces a New Single Grain Moisture Meter, the PQ520

Posted by John Bogart on Fri, Mar 22, 2013 @ 10:03 AM


This new device quickly measures the moisture within each grain of rice, barley and wheat, allowing users to determine the moisture content of individual seeds within a sample.

PHILDELPHIA, Penn. -- Mar. 18, 2013 -- Kett, the world’s leading manufacturer of award-winning portable handheld moisture analyzers and coating thickness analysis instrumentation, announced today the introduction of the PQ520, a new analyzer that provides rapid moisture measurement of rice, barley and wheat. The PQ520 is the latest in instrument innovation from Kett, a leader in rice, grain and seed measurement for more than 65 years. The PQ520 is designed for use in laboratory, near-line process and remote QA/QC applications where quick, accurate determination of moisture content is required.

Kett is exhibiting the PQ520 at 2013 Pittcon Conference and Expo March 17 through 21 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in booth 1503.

This simple-to-use device allows users to measure the moisture content of individual seeds within a sample. Tests are completed without sample preparation. The PQ520 is factory-calibrated for wheat, brown, polished and paddy rice, as well as naked and standard barley. To measure a sample, the user selects the calibration, pours a sample into the large hopper and presses the “Measure” button. Each kernel is individually tested and the value displayed on the large LCD screen. When complete, the number of kernels tested, the average moisture, and a histogram detailing the distribution of moisture values is displayed. The PQ520 is capable of measuring from 10 to 1,000 kernels in each batch and can measure 150 kernels per minute.

Kett’s PQ520 builds on the success of its PQ500 and PQ510 Single Grain Moisture Tester. These instruments are generally considered the worldwide standard for the measurement for single grain seed moisture; the PQ510 has been discontinued with the introduction of the PQ520.

Kett continues to stand behind the PQ520 with a one-year “Total Care” manufacturer's warranty on parts and labor and specification compliance
