- The sensor operates on the principle of an open plate capacitor. The moisture contained in a material can be measured in terms of that material’s dielectric constants.
- Moisture content can be determined in a matter of seconds – in wood chips or wood pellets, and sawdust, in grain and cereals, and other granulated materials.
- The characteristics of the materials to be measured can be specified on a highly customized basis; a wide variety of granulates, e.g. various cereal types, can thus be measured
We are able to offer a service to determine characteristics for special customer-specific materials.
- We will need a sample of approx. 10 litres of your granulate (e.g. wood, cereal, plastic). This sample should be sealed in an air-tight package, e.g. shrink-wrapped in plastic film
- We use various dried samples to determine the characteristics of your particular material.
- We then program these characteristics into the ALMEMO connector for the moisture content probe.
Advisory note: If the material cannot absorb water (not hygroscopic), it will not be possible to measure its moisture content. In this case, the processing fee we charge will be reduced.
