This hi-tech instrument is used to measure temperature of hay, silage, grain, compost or any crops in storage. The 1.5m probe is inserted into any material where temperature needs to be monitored. The lead is then plugged into the hand-held display unit. Readout is in large digits for easy reading in all conditions. The probe can be dismantled into two 75cm parts for easy carriage. Powered by a standard 9v battery. Measurement range -50°C to +150°C. Measurements in 3-5 seconds.
This hay thermometer and moisture meter from Draminski is valuable for determining moisture content of hay and straw, ensuring safest storage. The meter measures the electrical conductivity of hay or straw, converting into a moisture percentage reading, also giving the temperature at the same time. To achieve an accurate result the 56cm probe is pushed well into the bale or heap. At least five readings should be taken for accuracy of result. The unit can store these readings and then give the average result. The meter is powered by a standard 9 volt battery. Readings for moisture between 10% and 80%, and temperature from 1-100°C.
