The operator of a biofuel plant was looking for a solution that would provide him with information on the moisture content of the biomass (wood chips) before transportation into the combustion chamber in order to optimally adjust the combustion air.
|Moisture range:||20 – 60 %|
|Installation:||After the shredding machine|
|Function:||Measuring the moisture of wood chips|
The M-Sens continuously measures the material moisture of all kinds of solids in container outlets, conveyor belts, screw conveyors, mixers and belt dryers.
In the described application the M-Sens WR is used. The M-Sens WR is especially used for coarser materials and for higher moisture values.
For applications with wood dusts with a lower moisture value the standard M-Sens is used.
Typical installation locations are e. g. in a silo outlet or in a screw conveyor.
- Optimal control of the combustion air
- Reduction of fuel consumption
- Process optimization
