Why measure moisture in rice?
Moisture control in grains such as rice are crucial to the final product quality. Moisture content (mc) is the weight of water contained in paddy or rice, expressed in percent. Moisture measurement is desirable at numerous stages during the manufacturing process, on-line NIR (near-infrared) measurement is a key tool in ensuring optimum efficiency and quality control. The ability to measure moisture and make process adjustments during the production cycle is key. Inaccurate moisture levels in rice production can lead to extra drying costs and harvesting loss, spoilage of grain in storage, extra drying costs and loss of quality, lower head rice when milled, and weight loss in grain is it is sold too dry.
