Martin Lishman - 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 %
