Hydro-Mix Moisture Sensor used in a Wastepaper Dryer

After paper has been recycled many times, it can still be reused, for example, into animal bedding.

In this video, the Hydronix Hydro-Mix XT moisture sensor is measuring wastepaper at the output from a dryer.

The Hydro-Mix is mounted on a Hydro-Skid which enables the moisture sensor to be held in contact with the surface of the wastepaper at the end of a belt conveyor.

By introducing moisture measurement and control, the material is dried for the right amount of time avoiding wasted energy and material.

Besides reducing your wastage, introducing a moisture sensor in your processes, can also:

  • Save money on your energy bill by automatically adjusting your dryer heat.
  • Increase your production levels by automating your processes and reducing rework.
  • Deliver a consistent final product by consistently hitting moisture targets and continuously adjusting the water you are adding to your recipe.
  • Increase your competitive advantage by increasing your yield through efficient use of material.
