OMEGA’s HGM68 is designed for fast and accurate measurement of moisture and temperature in allotment, acquisition, storage and machining of packed grains. It uses an exclusive one-chip micro-processor for a wide range of highly accurate measurements. The unit is constructed from durable lightweight ABS plastic housing to assure maintenance free performance for many years. The body and probe are ergonomically designed to fit comfortably in either hand.

How much grain is needed to take an accurate test? Will a small pail full work or do you need a bin full or can you just probe a bit in the combine hopper?
Asked by: Lennard
Thank you for your inquiry. The probe will as long as the needles are fully submerged in the grain.

would it work for bread crumb to test moisture?
Asked by: Carlito625
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, this meter is not going to work with bread crumbs. The material substance and density is too different from raw grain. Please contact our Tech Support if we can be of any further assistance.
