The BaleCheck 200 is a professional moisture measuring instrument on bales of pressed hay and straw. According to experts in agricultural nutrition, the factor that most influences the quality of the grain of wheat, barley or rye, hay or straw is moisture. Greisinger's BaleCheck 200 measures moisture between 0.0 to 100% (U) and the water content between 0.0 to 50% (W).
The Greisinger BaleCheck 200 Moisture Meter is for measuring the temperature and humidity of the milling grain of wheat, barley, rye or hay and straw in the bales. It allows to easily determine the suitability for storage and quality of hay and straw – important especially in agriculture, stock breeding and horse keeping.
The slim but robust measuring rod with 620 mm and Ø10 mm is robust and suitable to be used for measurements in different depths.
If the maximal moisture is <16.0 % u, the material can be stored or spent without hesitation.
Moisture control in agriculture, livestock breeding and horse breeding is an ongoing process requiring a moisture meter such as BaleCheck 200.
Increasingly the transport cost per ton of hay or straw increases with increasing bale humidity, the larger the amount of water in the bales, the smaller the amount of dry mass transported. Considering the value of moisture found in the bales, the increase in the cost of transport could be very high.
This BaleCheck meter incorporates an LCD display with indication in % U (humidity) and% W (water content). The meter is powered by a 9 volt battery with a minimum life expectancy of 170 hours.
