Moisture in Renewable Energy

Moisture is important in any manufacturing process, but when it comes to hog fuel, waste fiber, wood chips, pellets, saw dust, shavings, and forest waste, excess moisture can ruin products. And what’s worse than a wasted effort? Economical losses and decreased productivity.

Renewable Energy moisture control benefits include less waste, reduced energy costs, better product quality, decreased amount of downtime and 100% product inspection.

The renewable energy moisture sensor should be installed to a sturdy support over the conveyor or processing line. Distance should range, on average, eight inches from the product. By installing sensors in this fashion, the sensor can administer continuous readings during the entire mineral creation process. This guarantees continuous monitoring of the process, which can be controlled manually or automatically.

Each renewable energy moisture sensor comes standard with an optical window to prevent flying particles from caking. We recommend cleaning the optical window from time to time to prevent damaging build-up. Use your best judgment to determine cleaning dates, as the longer the particles build-up, the harder it will be to erase.

MoistTech’s sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements

Our renewable energy moisture sensor can be used the following applications:

Green Wood Chips / Wood Biomass Moisture / Wood Pellets
Hog Fuel
Solar Panels
Spent Grain
Waste to Energy Pellet
Wind Turbines
