110602.tifOn-Line Moisture Sensor
The FP-24C flush-mounted on-line moisture sensor monitors particulate moisture content in physically hostile environments, such as mixers, chutes, belt conveyors, and augers. Features of the patented unit include: capacitive sensor technology with patented electrode design; typical moisture measurement accuracy of +/-0.25%; typical temperature measurement accuracy of +/-1ºF; analog output of 4 to 20 mA for both temperature and moisture content; 12 to 36 V DC, 3 watts maximum power required; sensor surface area of 4.625 X 7.625 in.; ceramic sensor surface; hard-faced aluminum sensor body. AgriChem Inc., Ham Lake, MN 763-689-5538 www.agricheminc.com

110604.tifNIR Moisture Sensors
The IR3000 is an online moisture sensor developed for instant, non-contact analysis of powder and granular materials for the harshest environments. Insensitive to material variations such as particle size and material height, the unit provides continuous, accurate readings, allowing operating personnel the ability to make immediate process adjustments based on real time measurements. The net result is improved quality and reduced production costs by saving in energy and waste. The 858 is an at-line, laboratory moisture analyzer that uses a new patented optical technique and touch-screen PC. The broad-beam instrument is designed to measure sealed samples in 1 second with no constituent losses due to volatilization-receiving a true moisture reading and accuracies within .01%. MoistTech, Moorpark, CA 805-378-1160 www.MoistTech.com

110603.tifNear-Infrared Composition Meter
The KJT270F allows for instant, non-destructive measurement of any solid in almost any location within a manufacturing process. The fiberoptic probe can be configured for insertion in mixers, blenders, dryers, homogenizers, dispensing systems, and pneumatic and vacuum feed lines to provide 100% product sampling. Probe designs are available for food- and pharmaceutical-grade applications as well as hazardous materials. The smart sensor design allows the instrument to simultaneously monitor moisture, fat/oil, protein, solvent, sugar, coatweight, adhesive levels and other macro organic components without being connected to a PC, laptop, or other controller device - simplifying installation and maintenance. Kett US, Villa Park, CA 800-438-5388 www.kett.com
