Bagasse

The MoistScan® microwave moisture analyser has proven to be very useful within the Sugar Industry. Callidan Instruments is located in the heart of Australia’s sugar industry and has succeeded in applying the gauge to both prepared cane and bagasse applications.



Typically the MoistScan® MA-500 obtains an instrument precision of 0.6% for products which have a moisture range of 25% – 40%. Applications for the MoistScan® moisture meter include



  • Moisture control for prepared sugar cane
  • Plant feedback by analysing moisture content of crushed cane (bagasse)
  • Measurement of total moisture of bagasse for control of fuel for power stations.
