Saw Dust Moisture
Why Measure Moisture Content?
Measuring product moisture in the production of saw dust plays an important overall role in the process. Too high or too low moisture can affect overall quality, which can sometimes stop the process or result in low-quality production and distribution.
On-going and accurate saw dust moisture measuring allows for quick correction if there are problems, and helps ensure high-quality production throughout the process. We have used sapphire optics to develop sample systems and optical windows, providing real-time process measurement. At MoistTech, we are dedicated to helping our customers produce the highest quality saw dust with our state-of-the-art sensor systems.
Prior to receiving your MoistTech sensor, we pre-set the calibrations for the sensor that provide the customer with the ability to simply install and begin immediately measuring moisture content. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 0-20% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure moisture within tenths of a percent of most applications
MoistTech sensors withstand the test of time and are low to zero maintenance
Rely on MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors to never drift or need re-calibration
COST OF OWNERSHIP
A moisture measurement system is essential for the production process and in some cases will pay for itself in less than 30 days
Installation is simply and easy – mounting the sensor within 4 – 8 inches from the product allows a constant process tracking as well as the ability to make manual or automatic adjustments throughout the process. Brackets provided with the sensor allow easy install from either the top or the back of the unit, whichever is more convenient.
The advanced design of the IR-3000 allows immediate and precise readings of the moisture levels despite small product gaps in the process. We also use sapphire optics to develop sample systems and optical windows which provides real-time process measurement.
We’ve combined our decades of experience and knowledge with feedback from our industry partners to create a moisture sensor capable of taking instant, non-contact measurements of moisture, temperature, and other vital levels with the utmost accuracy. When it comes to moisture sensors, the IR-3000 is the most advanced system available.
Locate the point in the production process in which measuring moisture will be the most crucial and beneficial. Identify how you will use the moisture measurement data for improvements and if it will tie into your PLC.
Remember this could involve more than one installation point!
A closed loop process is achieved by incorporating a moisture measurement system into the manufacturing process. Developing a proactive solution to moisture control will avoid costly downfalls.
MoistTech’s experts will assess your specific application with lab tests, calibrations and accuracy results to ensure our equipment will peform for you. All of our sensors are pre-calibrated prior to being shipped to create a plug-and-play operation for the end-user.
Understand the Process
Wood fiber moisture can affect many aspects about the wood or wood-based products. It is important for those involved in the manufacturing of wood fiber products to have accurate readings on moisture content in order to deliver top-quality products to their customers.
Reliable and real-time moisture sensors for this process can improve quality control as well as increase production. Energy is not wasted by over-drying wood fiber, and rejected material is significantly reduced.
