Measuring moisture during sugar cube production

The Berthold moisture measuring system based on microwave measuring technology is used to measure the moisture content of the sugar before it enters the forming machine. Thus, the operator can reliably monitor the water content through real-time data and trends, guaranteeing ideal manufacturing conditions.
