Moisture plays an important role in determining product quality or as a process parameter during the processing of food and feedstuffs, chemical, pharmaceutical and mineral substances etc.
High measuring throughput – Whereas conventional lab-based moisture measuring methods such as drying balances, drying kilns or Karl Fischer titration will return accurate results if handled correctly, they will, however, take at least a couple of minutes or, with some products, several hours before they produce results. These measuring methods are not suitable when a continuous stream of accurate results is required for process or quality control. The microwave resonance method developed by TEWS Elektronik delivers results within a fraction of a second, with the total measuring speed peaking at more than 100 readings per second. This is enough to analyze even quickly flowing products.
Insensitive to interference – There are various methods of online moisture measuring to choose from. By selecting a suitable measuring system for a certain application, care must, however, taken that the readings will not be corrupted by varying product properties (e.g. density, color, graining, surface drying) or by ambient conditions at the measuring point (dust, different piling heights). On account of the measuring technique applied, TEWS moisture Elektronik measuring systems are designed to be insensitive to such interference.
Possible Instruments Sensors- Here you will find the sensors that fit for your (Laboratory, Process, High-speed, please enter the appropriate one) TEWS system. We would be happy to help you with your selection according to your specifications concerning the moisture, density, and temperature range of your product.
