Fairbanks Scales Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, will be showcasing state-of-the-art advanced analytical and weighing instruments for the agricultural industry at the Grain and Feed Association of Illinois (GFAI) Annual Convention and Trade Show, February 17-19, 2019, at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel, Schaumburg, IL, Booth# 320. On display will be the FB2558 vehicle weighing instrument integrated with the Perten AM 5200-A grain moisture tester. Also featured will be the Perten IM9500 and IM8800 grain analyzers and the Probe-A-Load all-electric core sampler grain truck and rail car probe.

The FB2558 instrument on display is shown fully integrated with the Perten AM 5200-A Grain Moisture Tester. Users can obtain weight data from the scale and test information from the Perten AM 5200-A Grain Moisture Tester and print both on the scale ticket. The data is also stored in the transaction record and included in the exported transaction data. The Perten AM 5200-A Grain Moisture Tester is interfaced to the FB2558 instrument using a serial cable. The interface uses up to eight of the 10 programmable prompts available with the standard FB2558. The new interface captures a variety of data from the Perten AM 5200-A Grain Moisture Tester and populates these prompt fields. Available data fields include date, time, product, sample ID, moisture, and test weight, as well as temperature and serial number.

The Perten IM 9500 NIR grain analyzer on display uses industry standard NIR transmission to analyze samples, backed up by innovative single block optics. The IM 9500 features a monochromator machined from a single block of metal, which offers a rigidity of structure that improves accuracy by reducing sensitivity to vibration and temperature changes that disturb the light path of older design instruments. The Perten IM 8800 Inframatic grain analyzer provides accuracy similar to elevator and lab-based instruments in a cost-effective manner. With solid state components and diode array technology, the IM 8800 supplies accurate, repeatable, and reproducible results.

Also on display will be the Probe-A-Load product, which samples high moisture grain or any flowable material. Meeting all state and federal regulations and type approved as an FGIS official sampling probe, the Probe-A-Load consistently provides an exact sample with no chance of excess foreign material. It features an extendable arm, 359° rotation, and built-in traffic lights, flood lights, signal, and horn. Optional camera system and grain return systems are available.
