Berthold’s microwave measurement in industryUsing the microwave measuring systems from Berthold Technologies, concentration, dry matter, or moisture content can be measured online in a wide variety of products in the ongoing process at shafts, pipelines, or containers.
From the food and chemical industries to power stations and mines - the areas of application for our microwave measuring systems are manifold. The choice of sensors and technical features, such as height, measurement dynamics, multi-frequency technology, user-friendly software, etc., is appropriately large.
With the microwave systems from Berthold, you can measure liquids, suspensions, pastes, granulates, powders and bulk solids online.
The measuring principle
The MicroPolar measuring systems use the special dielectric property of water. The measuring system generates microwaves that interact with the water molecules. This interaction causes an attenuation of the microwave energy, which can be detected as phase shift and attenuation.
Since the phase shift and attenuation change is directly proportional to the water content, the concentration of the medium can be determined with high accuracy. Berthold’s multi-frequency technology ensures very stable and reliable
