This device was used to measure the moisture in grain and flour. The product was placed in a sample tube which was connected to the device. The measurement was taken three times and the average result was produced, which was converted into the corresponding measurement of each kind of grain.
It is very important to control the degree of moisture of wheat. Moisture (less than 12-13%) affects its optimal conservation and the performance of the milling. What’s more, the flour will absorb more or less water depending on the moisture levels, and this in turn affects the amount of bread dough yielded.
