Zeal Potato Hydrometer
Used extensively throughout the potato industry by producers of foods such as crisps, french fries, potato wedges and canned, frozen and powdered potato products. This is a simple and accurate method of measuring the solid content or percentage dry matter of potatoes. The method of use involves placing a known weight of potatoes in the basket and suspending the hydrometer and potatoes in a large container of clean water. The buoyancy of the unit in water determines the water level against the vertical scale and hence gives the dry matter reading.
- Suitable for static applications, requires large water bin (45 gal/175 liter)
- Potato weight needs to be exact.
- Available in different dry matter ranges from 17 to 27 %
