Dry substance/moisture of bagasse, sugar beet pulp, beet slices or pellets

Both bagasse and beet pulp contain a certain amount of water, which needs to be measured in order to ensure continuity and high quality of the downstream processes.
The Berthold microwave systems are applied to determine moisture online and non-contacting, on conveyor belts or chutes. Thus, the customer receives representative, in-situ moisture information for optimized process control. Due to the non-contacting method, the measurement components are not subject to wear and tear – resulting in maintenance-free operation and long operational life.
