Microwave Moisture Measurement of wood chips in the Paper Industry


  • accurate high selectivity on water accuracy < 1,5 %
  • inline contactless measurement directly at the existing conveyors without extensive mechanical sampling devices
  • representative sensing of a large percentage of the material flow due to the transmission geometry. The whole volume, not only the surface is analyzed
  • no radio-active source alternatively an electro-mechanical belt weigher can be used to correct the variation of the area weight
