Big sample volume

 

 

Measurement principle

 

The Granomat measures the capacity (dielectric constant), the weight and the temperature of the whole grain sample. It determines both the moisture of the product and the bulk density (specific weight). The sample volume is 600 ml. A grinding of the sample is not necessary.

 

 

Application

 

The Granomat is suitable for all types of cereals, legumes, oil seeds, maize and malt. The memory stores up to 200 different calibrations. Ask for a list of available product calibrations!

             

 

 

 

Fully automated operation


The measurement is fully-automated. The user puts the sample into the funnel of the Granomat, chooses the requested product and presses the key MEASURE. The input of a sample identification is also possible. The Granomat fills the measurement cell automatically. This guarantees a constant bulk density. The integrated stripping device removes the grains which are not necessary for the measurement and provides for a constant volume.

The measurement of the sample is carried out within a couple of seconds. The measurement cell is discharged and the sample falls into the drawer. It can be used for further analyses. The Granomat indicates the measured product moisture, the bulk density (expressed in kg/hl) as well as the temperature of the sample and prints the results by means of the integrated printer.

 

 

Homologation


The Granomat had been designed in accordance with the EU-standards and the international metrological recommendations of the OIML (International Organisation for Calibrated Metrology); it corresponds to category A, class II. The Granomat is officially homologated in Germany and other European countries

 

 

PC-software GranoMaster


New product curves can be programmed directly by means of reference samples with known moisture content via the PC-programme Granomat. The programme supports the graphic preparation of the calibration curve for the new product. It is Windows based.

 

 

Equipment


Two serial and a parallel interface for the connection to an external printer or for the data transfer to EDP systems can be used. The Granomat accomplishes an automatic self-check each time the instrument is switched on and controls its accuracy by measuring internal comparative capacities. It is sturdy and maintenance-free. The modular construction guarantees a high ease of servicing.
