It is the official testing machine used in Federal Grain Inspection Service offices of USDA-AMS/FGIS, the department’s licensed inspectors, state grain inspection offices, Canadian Grain Commission and worldwide throughout the commercial grain grading and inspection system.
Official procedures have been established for testing Wheat, Corn, Barley, Rye, Flaxseed, Rice and grain Sorghums. Instructions on the proper riddles and sieves to use, along with their procedures for testing these grains are furnished
with the tester and can also be found on the USDA Federal Grain Inspection Service website.
The Carter-Day Dockage Tester is manufactured in the USA and includes a sound reduction feature by using noise abatement materials in the side plates, cover plates and drive guard. Additionally a ‘quiet motor’ has been added. Also available is a swivel caster kit which allows the operator to move the Dockage Tester from one location to another, or just out of the way in an office environment. The casters retract into the base so the tester can be leveled with the four adjustment legs.
