Benets of accurate moisture control Moisture measurement is one of the most-important parameters for ecient panel board production. A moisture content in raw material that is too high results in a slow-down in production speed with an increased risk of causing blows, if raw material becomes too dry excess energy will be consumed. Also the risk of re and explosion in the dryer is greatly increased. If moisture is monitored at dierent locations within the production process, valuable information will exhibit for optimization of the process. Multi-wavelength infrared light is used which is targeted to, and reected by the material surface. A certain wavelength of infrared light is absorbed by water molecules, thus more or less weakened. The weakened signal is compared to the unweakened signal. The resulting values indicate the Visualization-PC Material collector for drop chute applications (e.g. after dryer) Measuring through glass window (e.g. silo, bin, screw conveyor)
