New System for Moisture Measurement

Micro-Polar II (LB 567) is the new moisture measurement system from BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES, specifically developed for the measurement of bulk materials. It provides online monitoring on conveyor belts or chutes and can be easily installed at existing plants.
The Microwave based measurement operates completely non-contacting. The components are not exposed to any wear and tear as the emitting antenna is mounted below and the receiving antenna is mounted above the conveyor belt. Therefore no maintenance is required. The measurement provides very representative measuring results by the penetration of all material layers.
Due to technical improvements in frequency and frequency range, new opportunities have become available for applications, which had been restricted in terms of bulk density or particle size. Using the new system, even high bulk layers can be penetrated due to the increased dynamics. The multi-frequency technology used by Berthold Technologies ensures a very stable and reliable measurement as several measuring values are taken for different individual frequencies. When varying bulk heights occur, the Micro-Polar II provides optional bulk height compensation. 
BERTHOLD TECHNOLOGIES has been using the microwave technology for more than 20 years to measure the moisture of bulk materials. The resulting technological experience, as well as the strong cooperation with customers in the international bulk industry, ensures the Micro-Polar is a very reliable instrument with the highest level of customer convenience.
