The temperature lance and handheld reader combination make it easy and affordable to monitor the temperature of grains, hay, or silage in locations where suspending cables is either impossible or cost prohibitive. This solution requires no power, no installation, and can be set up quickly and easily. Since it is highly portable, very little equipment is needed, making it extremely cost-effective.
A common application is to use temperature lances in permanent or temporary piles. Temperature lances can be similarly used in flat storage warehouses or bodegas, either inserted as monitoring is needed, or left in place. Grain in railcars, wagons, trucks, or loaded on ships can be conveniently monitored prior to loading or unloading to ensure the temperature is in compliance for the next destination. This solution can also be used for monitoring the temperature of hay or silagle where there is a risk of combustion.
