Online Moisture Measurement of Bulk Materials
Berthold online moisture analyzer

The LB 567 moisture analyzer measures the moisture content of a wide variety of bulk solids online. The measurement takes place on the conveyor belt, bunker, silo, or at the shaft. The microwave transmission technology allows non-contact measurement of the entire cross-section of the material. The result is accurate and representative online measurements for quality assurance and process optimization.

As there is no contact with the material to be measured, the sensors are not subject to any wear and tear and maintenance will never be required.

The LB 567 moisture analyzer is predestined for applications with constant measuring conditions (e.g. constant particle size, bulk density, etc.). The measurement is carried out without the need of a radiometric unit. In combination with a height sensor, the system allows for a compensation of varying bulk heights on the conveyor belt. For more demanding applications however, the MicroPolar Moist LB 568 is recommended.

The MicroPolar Moist LB 568 moisture measurement analyzer is applied when the bulk density varies. Beside the moisture measurement by microwaves the system comprises also a radiometric unit to measure the area weight (mass per unit area). By combining both measurements varying bulk densities can be reliably compensated leading to a significantly improved measurement accuracy.
