Description

Moisture measurement has always been an important process parameter. Traditionally this has been carried out using the conventional laboratory analysis of a manual sample. The ultraMOIST On-Belt Moisture Measurement System now allows the accurate measurement of moisture in real time.

 

THE ultraMOIST ON-BELT MOISTURE ANALYSER CONSISTS OF THE FOLLOWING SUB SYSTEMS: 

Measurement C-Bracket which provides the means of mounting ultraMOIST on the conveyor as well as accurate alignment of the microwave transmitter and receiver subsystems.

 

SUITABLE FOR ALL NON-CONDUCTING MATERIALS SUCH AS:

  • Coal, bagasse, grains, silica
  • Wood flakes, chemicals, sugar, wool
  • Bauxite, mineral ores, food
  • Sand, aggregates, cotton

Applications

Electronics Control Cabinet – usually mounted on the Measurement C-Bracket. This cabinet contains electrical, electronic and microwave hardware which consists of:

  • Processor / PLC.
  • Power supplies.
  • Electrical terminations.
  • Microwave Components

Mass Flow Measurement – usually provided using a belt scale or weigh feeder. ultraMOIST is able to interface with this device for the calculation of weight percent moisture. For applications with no measurement device ultraMOIST can be supplied complete with an integrated belt scale.
