MTC 999 FR Portable Grain Moisture Analyzer


Ideal for:

The 999-FR is arguably the most advanced Portable Grain Moisture Tester in the world. And is the ideal tool to monitor the best time to harvest. Price: $899.

Measure grains, seeds and a wide variety of other product’s moisture content. Based on North American Standards (USDA and CGC), all the instruments must provide results equivalent to the air oven, which is the reference method.

The moisture content reading process uses a technology based on the water dielectric properties in the sample. Using calibration charts, the water amount in the sample is converted to moisture percentage.

Designed to provide fast and accurate results, the instrument has also a simple and intuitive operating interface, offering the user a color display with touch panel to easily interact with the instrument. Built to meet or exceed the precision, security and performance demands for grain moisture testers described in the NIST (National Institute of Standard and Technology) Handbook 44. Plus, the instrument comes loaded with the USDA and CGC calibration charts.




Easily connect to the 999-FR through Bluetooth to download & share results.


More than 250 grain calibrations loaded in memory: Including USDA and CGC certified calibrations. Calibration charts available for more than 458 different types of grains;


Results in less than 10 seconds.


Easily charge your tester at home or in the car.

The moisture tester will automatically power off to extend battery life when not in use.

Is this tester certified by the Canadian Grain Commission?

The Canadian grain commission does not certify any grain moisture tester. We ensure that the CGC checks and confirms the calibrations of the standard MTC machine every 06 months.

How often does it need to be calibrated?

It depends on how you use the machine, we suggest that you send the machine every year for a checkup and calibration. If any grain calibration is updated by the CGC we will be able to upload it to the machine.

Is this the same company that manufactures the Labtronics 919

The technology is the same. Both machines use a similar frequency in the capacitor. When you fill the dump cell with grain, the frequency changes. The grain calibrations represent the calculation between the frequency and the moisture.

The machine translates the frequency in the dump cell into a moisture reading. The frequency measures the change in the electrical frequency when something is in the dump cell. Temperature corrections are also included in the machines software/memory.

The machine uses a temperature sensor, weight and frequency to determine the moisture content. The software includes temperature, weight and frequency to calculate the most accurate moisture of the contents in the dump cell.

What is the warranty?

5 Years

Do you have Canadian grains in the calibrations?

Yes, all the CGC and USDA grain calibrations are in the memory

How long has the manufacturer been making these products?

MTC Moisture is part of Motomco Group, a company with over 25 years working with grain moisture testers.

How accurate are the MTC Grain Analyzers?

It depends on the grain being tested, but in average around 0.2% when comparing to air oven (standard laboratory method for grain moisture testing).

With corn you can have up to 0.5% fluctuation from one reading to another due to different factors, for example the shape of the corn kernel.

Does it do protein, silage and hay?


Do we need a flat surface for the portable 999-FR?

No, the machine can be placed on any reasonably leveled and steady surface

Does the MTC Grain Analyzers work with frozen and hot grain?

Yes, from -20 up to 70 degrees Celsius, although if the grain temperature is outside the CGC calibration range (11 to 30 degrees) the machine will warn the user that the machines is operating outside the suggested range.

How accurate is the Test Weight (bushel weight)?

Between 5 and 10%

What battery type is in the portable machine 999 – FR?

  • Lithium Battery with an average life span of about 5 years.
  • Charging time is recommended to do overnight – 9-10 hours.

How long does it last?

Up to 8 hours of continuous use. Auto-shut down activates after 5 minutes standing by.

Competitive Advantage in the market:

These machines are very convenient as you get the highest accuracy with true portability. 999 FR.

MTC 999 FR does not require external accessories and ensures exceptional accuracy with true portability. Includes an integrated scale and the ability to measure frozen or hot grains. 11 – 30 degrees Celsius – is the range that the CGC uses, however these devices can accurately measure material between -20 – 70 degrees Celsius.
