Usage of Moisture Meters and Their Features

We pioneer the most accurate and wide range of products that are suitable to a variety of applications. These products are manufactured under the guidelines lay down by QC agency. Moisture meters are one such example that is manufactured across India catering to a variety of industries. Not only this, moisture meters are even supplied to several governmental and public sector organizations.

Moisture meters are equipments that are used to detect the actual amount of moisture level in a product. As the amount of moisture increases, the probability of its existence becomes less.  Similar is the case with wood, coffee, tea, pepper, flour and many more. As the moisture level in them rises, they tend to lose their sustainability factor.

 Moisture meters can be of different types. For instance grain moisture meters, seed moisture meters, Red Pepper Moisture Meters, tobacco moisture meters, flour moisture meters, wood moisture meters, soil moisture meters and hay moisture meters. These equipments are user friendly, have a large display and high accuracy, long lasting battery and have an automatic control over the uniformity of temperature.

Other than the above mentioned description, grain moisture meter can be used to measure the level of moisture for different types of grains. These grains can be soybean, red bean, mung bean pea nut, sesame and wheat. Grain moisture meter works on the principle of measuring electrical conductivity of a given material having a fixed relation with moisture content of a given material which is measured using superior state technology and displayed on the screen.

Most of these moisture meters work more or less on similar operating principles. Seed Moisture Meter is used to determine moisture range for seeds like melon seed, water melon, reddish seed, cabbage seed, and pumpkin seed. The purpose for moisture mixture equipment is alike the only thing that varies is its usage.

Red pepper moisture meter is specifically used to ascertain moisture content in various types of red pepper. Each and every function present in this equipment is automatic be it temperature correction or displaying of results. Similar to seed moisture equipment, even red pepper moisture is used for monitoring level of moisture in melon seeds, water melon, reddish seed, cabbage seed, and pumpkin seed.

As the name suggests tobacco moisture meters are used to find out the moisture content in different types of tobacco leaves. The machine does not weigh too much and posses a normal 1.5 volt battery.

Unlike the other moisture machines stated above, flour moisture meter is used to check the moisture content in flour accurately and quickly, and whenever the battery fades away, it shows a sign of battery replacement. It weighs around 1kg and has a fair accuracy of 0.5%

Wood moisture meters are distinctively used to determine the amount of moisture content in a wood. This is because as the moisture content rises, it damages the product. So it is very important to measure the amount of moisture in a product, to avoid further complications.

Materials like wood, flour, tea, pepper, seed, and tobacco have their respective moisture meters to determine the amount of moisture in a material. Similarly soil and clay even have their own respective machines to determine moisture content. This soil moisture meter is in a great demand in various research stations, agricultural universities, cold storage and various agro based industries.

Hay moisture meters are specifically designed to determine the amount of moisture in hay. The device weighs up to 900 grams combined with a large liquid crystal display and a long lasting battery.

Gas-Loving Spiders Cause Mazda Car Recall

For the second time in three years, Mazda Motor Corp has issued a recall for Mazda6 sedans in North America because of a spider that likes the smell of gasoline and weaves a web that blocks a vent in the engine. The web weaved by a spider can lead to a restriction of fuel flow, which in turn can reduce fuel tank pressure when the emission control system purges vapors from the evaporative canister. Mazda will inform owners in the recall campaign to bring cars to dealers, where the evaporative canister vent line will be checked and cleared if necessary.

Aston Martin iQ, Mercedes Milestones Autoline Daily 174

Toyota and Aston Martin are going to join forces in Europe, where Aston is going to sell a version of the Toyota iQ. Tata launched Jaguar and Land Rover in .

I have filmed the new baby Aston Martin Cygnet, this car is based on the Toyota iQ and its a real luxury city car. I had the opportunity to film a red one and also to .


I was FLOORED to hear that all this talk of DRILL, DRILL, DRILL only means that multi-national corporations will be profiting even MORE from America as they take OUR oil off OUR coast and sell it to whoever is the highest bidder. Likely CHINA.

McCain & Palin have been acting like drilling off our pristine coasts will benefit America and be a national security issue – but it is JUST A PLAIN PROFIT ISSUE FOR BIG OIL. This McCain supporter ADMITS IT.

If you thought this drill, drill, drill chant sounded too good to be true, you were right. Not only does it take 10 years or more to come online, but once it does, it’ll be sold to the industrial powerhouse of China as they continue to feed their industrial machine and move jobs out of the U.S.

THIS IS DISGUSTING – and the oil money pouring into John McCain’s campaign should sicken you as well – if you are a proud American and want the best future for our kids and their family in the future.

It is time to stop playing corporate games with these big oil conglomerates, foreign companies manipulating our markets, and other special interests who all have their hands in the Republican pockets.

Market Report - BOJ Cuts Rates, Toyota Falls

In today’s Market Report:

The Bank of Japan cut already low interest rates today. They said conditions in the world’s second largest economy would worsen. The cut–to 0.1 percent of its key rate–comes at a time when Japanese business confidence is at a seven-year low…and the nation looking at what may be its most protracted recession since World War II.

The dollar gained slightly against the yen on the move, but is still on-course for its biggest weekly fall in 23 years.

And the world’s number one carmaker Toyota was the subject of media scrutiny ahead of a news briefing next Monday, when the Nikkei reported Toyota would announce its first parent-only operating loss forecast for the current year.

Other Japanese media had less severe outlooks for Toyota, but plunging sales and a surging yen have hit all Japanese automakers hard.

Toyota made an operating profit of around 5.8 billion U.S. dollars in the first half of the year, so the loss would have to be even larger in these last six months to put it in the red.

Take Care Of Your Back With Ergonomic Office Furnitures

Official work has been defined in a new way over the past century. In the present scenario, several days are spent sitting in a chair, at a desk, staring at a computer screen inside a cubicle. The set up is slightly depressing and injuries from repeating the same muscle movements over and over are becoming frequent. The Office Furnitures in organizations can help turn the situation and help the employees to work harder.
Ergonomics became a buzz word in the last decade, but can be traced back as far as the  Ancient Greece civilization. The health of a worker in accordance  to the equipment is the essential definition of ergonomics and is necessary to prevent the injuries often seen in computer workers with time, and which can lead to long-term disability.

Determining the needs of a worker ergonomically means looking at the equipment, precisely size, position, etc and its interaction with the employee. Work stress and health is a serious issue and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration has come up with four suggestions to prevent musculoskeletal disorders.

Many people complain of back problems and although standing at work would help in easing back pressure, that is not a feasible option  for many and as such the bulk of a person’s body weight is brought down onto the seat as well as the backrest, armrest, and floor. An ideal chair is one that redistributes body weight and ease pain on the back by taking pressure away from spinal discs.

Backwards inclines along with lumbar support can relieve some back problems as can kneeling chairs. While these chairs give an appearance of putting pressure exclusively on a person’s knees that is not the truth. The angle of the body is lowered, but pressure is distributed evenly and taken on by the chair. These chair can be purchased from any store that deals in office furniture,  be it on the world wide net  or retail outlets.

Keyboards can come in a number of character spacing that reduces the stress on a person’s wrist. Again, these types of keyboards can be purchased readily where computer accessories are sold. Computer monitors should be such so that it can be lifted and moved so that the angle of contact with a worker’s eye causes the least amount of strain, especially when coupled with a screen to diminish glare.

Having a hedesk with adjustable ight is also beneficial to a person’s posture as well as helping decrease back pain. If you can raise a desk so that it can stand for a few hours a day, the benefits to their health will be doubled.
