Date Posted: May 23, 2017

Kansas City, MO - Fairbanks Scales Inc., the oldest scale company in the U.S. and the world’s leader in weighing equipment, announces a partnership with Perten Instruments, a leading supplier of advanced analytical instruments to the agricultural industries.

Fairbanks now has Nationwide Authorized Distributor rights to sell Perten products, which are ideal for use in monitoring quality, meeting specifications, and setting commodity pricing.

Perten Instruments products are an excellent choice for such industry segments as biofuels, grain farmers and traders, oilseed processors, flour milling, and wet and dry corn processing.

Perten Instruments, a Perkin Elmer company, makes a range of moisture meters to test moisture content in agriculture products, and sophisticated near infrared (NIR) whole grain analyzer instruments to measure moisture, proteins, starch, oil, and fiber.

As leaders in universal grain moisture algorithm (UGMA) technology, Perten Instruments is the number one supplier of USDA-certified UGMA-compatible/high frequency grain moisture meters.

Significantly more accurate than old meter technology, Perten Instruments’ UGMA based grain moisture meters offer a rugged instrument for long instrument life and reduced downtime.

“We are extremely excited about this new partnership with Perten Instruments, which offers great symmetry with our loyal customers in the agricultural area,” said Mike Mason, Regional Director.

“We look forward to spreading the word in the agricultural arena about superior instruments that provide total quality control of grain, flour, feed and food.”
