Measuring the moisture on conveyor belts or chutes

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