PCE Instruments - Microwave/Continuous Moisture Meter for Pellets/Wood Chips
- In the industrial production of wood pulp boards (PB, MDF, OSB) or pellets, the on-line measurement of the moisture/density of the wood material is essential to ensure that the processes in production run as efficiently as possible, energy consumption is kept low, and the raw material losses are minimized.
- The use of a microwave moisture meter, as opposed to a humidity sensor, provides a very consistent and high product quality while reducing operating and maintenance costs.
- In the online moisture measurement in production processes, the microwave sensor is valuable in many process stages: in the refining of wood pulp, during resin treatment, during pressing/de-watering and during the final drying.
- Areas of application for the PCE-MWM 300P microwave sensor include fiberboard (PB, MDF, OSB), sawdust, wood shavings, wood lamellae, wood panels, wood pellets and wood chips (incineration).
