THE TAKE-ANYWHERE ANSWER TO YOUR GRAIN QUALITY QUESTIONS.

Designed for farm conditions, this rugged meter is ideal for testing grain for moisture, protein and oil. An automated shutter protects the tester from light, insects and vermin to ensure reliable, low maintenance operation for years to come.

The Perten IM8800 protein and moisture meter has settings for: wheat, barley, oats, rye, sorghum, lupins, canola, lentils, chickpeas, peas, corn, soybean, faba beans.

Portable – Compact, light enough to hand carry and powered by 12V, or battery (up to 2 hours), the Inframatic 8800 goes with you where you need it most: in the pickup truck, in the cab of the header and to the silo. The optional carrying bag protects the IM 8800 and is useful for transporting the instrument to inspection sites, fields etc. It’s also useful for long-term, protective storage of the instrument after harvest.

GPS – The Inframatic 8800 is equipped with a GPS so you can create protein maps of your fields. Make fast harvesting and binning decisions to manage your grain quality.

Protein Maps allow farmers to extract additional profit by identifying pockets of premium grain.  Topography, fertilization, and run-off are known to cause variation in protein content within a field. The Inframatic 8800 helps you get the most value from the grain you are  already producing.

MEASURE IN THE FIELD

Variability of protein in wheat within a single row has been shown to be up to 6%. The maps allow you to capture that value. Maximize profitability by better controlling drying, identifying your highest quality grain, and selling it for a premium.

It’s all about portability and fit-for-purpose with the IM 8800. Place it in the cab of your pickup or harvester. It’s small enough to carry around the field for spot testing allowing you to determine optimal harvest time. The 2 hour battery life and GPS allow you to create protein maps of fields.

QUALITY CONTROL BEFORE DELIVERY

Deliver the right grain to the right buyer. Test your grain as it’s going into storage and as it’s going into the truck. Send the highest quality grain to those willing to pay premiums. Make sure you get the most for your grain.

WHY THE INFRAMATIC 8800 IS DIFFERENT

An on-farm grain analyzer has been desirable for some time. The demands on such an instrument are high, however, and must balance many requirements. It must be rugged, robust and portable to tote around the field. It must be simple to operate, but sophisticated enough to provide the accuracy similar to elevator and lab instruments. And it must do it all in a cost-effective manner.

The Inframatic 8800 uses solid state components and diode array technology meaning no moving optical components. The lack of moving parts allows us to align and match instruments at the factory – one instrument is exactly like the next. This means the instruments are accurate, repeatable, and reproducible.
