How does the capacitive measuring principle work?
The function of a moisture sensors using a capacitive measuring principle is explained. There are plenty of different measuring methods to determine the residual moisture of material such as bulk solids. Now we are focusing on the capacitive functional principle. Inter alia it finds its use in in-line moisture measurement (directly integrated within a working process). It can be classified into two methods of moisture measurement, direct and indirect. Direct measurement Direct measuring procedures are e.g. the Karl-Fischer-Tritation or drying out material (loss of water by using a drying cabinet, probably the most often used method). Indirect measurement Moisture sensors and systems belong to the indirect moisture measuring techniques as they allow conclusion concerning the water content by using for example the capacitive moisture measuring principle. Further possible measurements work with microwave, infrared or conductance methods. The main criteria is that these procedures do not detect the residual moisture of the bulk solids directly. Rather

SFM1 - Compressor unit with integrated moisture measurement Compacting unit for use with finer bulk material, e.g. sawdust and wood shavings
SFM1 - Compressor unit with integrated moisture measurement
Compacting unit for use with finer bulk material, e.g. sawdust and wood shavings The SFM1 compressor unit is specially designed for the determination of the moisture content of medium to fine materials. The pneumatic cylinder moves the "back wall" of the SFM1. This compacts the incoming material and pushes it with constant conditions over the sensor measuring surface of the integrated ACO moisture sensor. The measuring surface is cleaned automatically through the cylinder movements during the measuring processes. The constant material compaction and the constant height of the material allow best measuring results. - ideal measuring conditions for the integration of a moisture measurement - can be integrated into existing systems at a later date - automatic cleaning of the sensor measuring surface - optional: compact PLC for compressor unit This compressor unit is optimized for the use with sawdust or wood shavings in the production of wood pellets and has been used successfully for several years.

ACO AMMS moisture sensor Moisture measurement for coffeebeans in jute sacks
ACO AMMS moisture sensor
Moisture measurement for coffeebeans in jute sacks The AMMS sensor with its integrated microprocessor establishes a transition between the DMMS system and the analog moisture measuring sensor MMS. Besides a power supply, this sensor only needs a display or a PLC which is waiting for its measuring value. The AMMS sensor has been designed for applications which do not need a multi-pieced system but benefit of a precise on-line calibration that is able to compensate the influences of the installation. It’s also possible to calibrate the AMMS sensor directly by an integrated rotary encoder. This work actually takes place before the sensor has been installed. Measurable materials: biomass, pellets, wood chips, wood shavings, wood boards, firewood, coffee beans, cocoa beans, salt, paper, grain, corn, wheat, concrete, sand, ash, recycling glass, plastic, peat and much more! Don’t you know if your material is measurable? We examine your material in our in-house laboratory. Please do not hesitate to contact us!

Moisture sensors for coffee beans Inline Moisture Measurement in Copal C2 Bags Handling Line
Moisture sensors for coffee beans
Inline Moisture Measurement in Copal C2 Bags Handling Line Realization of continual quality monitoring of coffee beans by implementing a moisture measurment in the automated bags loading- and unloading system ”Copal - C2 bags handling line”. Four moisture sensors detect the water content of coffee beans instantly. Immediate outward transfer of the jute sacks with high moisture values. Intention of realizing a Load- and Unloading System with integrated moisture sensors Nestlé, the largest food company in the world and leader in the field of nutrition, health & wellness has given a new input on their moto “Good food, good life”. While Nestlé has plants all over the world and in almost every country, they feel highly responsible for the welfare and wellbeing of their employees. Creating Shared Value (CSV) is not something that is not meant to look good for their stockholders, it’s a responsibility they take very seriously. One of the top priorities is keeping the people healthy and save. For this reason they

ACO moisture sensor in SFM4 bypass screw ACO moisture measurement for biomass like wood chips, sawdust and wood shavings
ACO moisture sensor in SFM4 bypass screw
ACO moisture measurement for biomass like wood chips, sawdust and wood shavings Properties: Ideal material conditions for the on-line moisture measurement Flexible mounting of the bypass screw conveyor Maintenance flap for taking samples Subsequently applicable Great experience in the field of saw dust Versions: Length, height, dimensions of flanges on customer requirements Version for explosion-risk areas (EX) The SFM4 bypass screw compaction unit has to be placed in a free fall situation of material, e.g. in a drop shaft. A partial flow of this material is trapped in the first section of the compaction unit. The screw compactor compresses the material and conveys it into the second part of the unit, right across the installed ACO moisture sensor for the determination of the residual moisture. Then the material falls down through a drop pipe back into the process. Based on this constant and equal conditions (density, dumping height, etc...) precise measuring results are available.
