TX-200

The Grainscope TX-200 is a device for observing the exterior quality of Polished and Brown Rice. By filtering out light from behind the sample, you can observe the shape and colour quality of the grain. A magnifying lens and a sample tray that can be rotated whilst ascertaining the angle, are also included. Additionally, a blue background for the sample has been prepared, to enable the user to clearly discern the properties of the Polished or Brown Rice.

TR-250

TR-250

The TR-250 is an automatic rice husker for making brown rice samples. These samples are needed for electrical resistance grain moisture testers. To remove the husks (or hulls), simply pour a sample of paddy rice into the TR-250 hopper, close the cover and push the start key. While husking the rice, the brown rice is automatically moved to a separate case where it can be removed for the moisture test. The operation is very clean as the test is completely enclosed with the TR250 cover. Each sample is approx.20g. Using the TR-250 improved the efficiency of an agricultural facility like a rice testing laboratory or grain elevator as it makes it easy to take a variety of moisture measurements since sample preparation is not simplified.

RN-820

RN-820

The RN-820 Rice Freshness Analyzer or “Freshness Meister”, is a joint development between Kett and the Japan Grain Inspection Association. By placing Polished Rice in the measuring tray, adding colour with a pH indicator, then reading it in with a scanner and analyzing the image of each individual grain of Rice, it is possible to manage Rice freshness using images and numeric values. As quantification of the testing process is performed without relying on detecting colour differences with the naked eye, it is thus possible to completely standardize the freshness measurement. The test utilizes a pH indicator specified by the Japan Grain Inspection Association.

Applications: Polished Rice
Measurement method: Involves taking images of Polished Rice grains that have been coloured with a pH indicator, then image processing and determining their freshness using the dedicated software “Freshness Meister”.

PM-450

PM-450

This instrument can measure the moisture content of many kinds of grain, seeds, and other products. Using a fixed sample volume allows the weight, temperature, and capacitance (dielectric) of the sample to be measured. After processing this information with the use of the embedded microprocessor, the “Moisture Value” is displayed. Refer to the “Product List” for measurable grain types. Because the calibration curves of products on the “Product List” have been already stored, the measurement of a sample on the list can be instantly performed by simply pressing the product number.
Note: The entered product types may be different even among the same PM-450 models. The display may be different between examples in the Operating Manual and the real ones on the actual tester, but the usage is the same.
