Wood Shavings Moisture

Top Tier Moisture Control

Wood shavings are derived from various types of wood, such as pine, spruce, cedar, and fir. They are commonly employed as bedding for animals, packaging materials, decorations, and other uses. The size and shape of wood shavings can be customized to suit different purposes. Wood shavings can absorb moisture adequately so the implementation of moisture measurement is essential to ensure that the end product results in high quality. 

Sawdust and fine shavings have a better absorption capacity than medium and large shavings. For all categories, good quality animal bedding absorbs about four times its volume.

zero drift

Our sensors are guaranteed not to drift over time – which saves time and money

closed loop

Create a closed-loop process by tying a moisture sensor into your PLC. Full control over the line!

no recalibrations

We’ve mastered the art of moisture sensors – your unit will never need to be recalibrated for the same product twice!

What is the Solution?

Installation Points

For best results, install your wood shavings moisture sensor 4-12 inches above the conveyor belt. Don’t worry, our unique sensor allows for accurate readings even with small gaps in product flow. Our sensor allows for both manual and automatic monitoring throughout the process.

Our wood shavings moisture gauge functions well in dusty environments. If your particular environment produces an extreme amount of dust, however, we recommend installing an Air Purge System to keep your sensor dust-free and functioning accurately. It is also possible that if you’ve needed to install your sensor in a high-heat area, like close to the dryer outlet, you’ll need to cool the sensor with either air or water.
