Minimize Energy Costs + Control Moisture Levels
Elburn, IL, USA — The HumiCore in-line (on-line) moisture measuring system for continuous process monitoring guarantees trouble-free measurement of the internal product moisture of solids and emulsions.
The HumiCore moisture sensor circuitry principle is centered around an electrical high frequency field.
The HumiCore is based on technology that has been developed and proven by Muetec Instruments over several years.
With no material present, the ambient air is the dielectric component of the electrical high frequency field. The dielectric constant of air is 1.0.
When the process is active, bulk material passing in front of the sensor face displaces the ambient air and becomes the dielectric for the electrical high frequency field.
As the dielectric constant increases, it also causes a change in the electrical high frequency field. That change is processed by the electronics, is compensated for temperature, and is sent to the controller or transmitter.
Given the sensor output, a control system or the available controller can now quantify and display the moisture content of the material passing by the sensor face. The area of material influence is typically 7.75 inches (200 mm) from the sensor surface.
Calibration is a short and simple procedure.
The HumiCore sensor can provide a high precision measurement (0.1% to 0.3% typical). The in-line measuring system for process monitoring guarantees trouble-free measurement of the internal product moisture of solids and emulsions.
