Woodchip

MoistScan® technology has been applied to various wood chip applications ranging from wood chip for paper pulp to hog fuel projects. The pulp, wood chip and paper industries pose plenty of challenges for on-line moisture analysis. These include:

  • Irregular shape and colour of material
  • Different species of source wood
  • High moisture content
  • Wide particle size variations
  • Extreme ambient temperatures


The MoistScan® technology has been proven to work successfully, despite these challenges. The patented technology of the MoistScan® easily handles large and erratic variations in water content, particle size, material bed depth and conveyor speeds. Capturing moisture data that operators rely on and act on immediately.
