Online moisture monitoring of Biofuels


RTI’s MoistScan® real time on belt microwave moisture analyser is particularly suited to measuring moisture in many bio-fuel applications including:


– woodchip
– wood flake
– wood shavings
– hog fuel
– bagasse
– straw


The MoistScan® microwave moisture gauge is particularly suited to measuring bagasse moisture content.   Many sugar mills and co-generation plants have installed the MoistScan® MA-500HD on the fuel feed belt to the boiler as an integral part of boiler optimisation.




Food grade models of the MoistScan® online microwave moisture sensor are available for use in food processing. These analysers are fully CIP (clean in place) compliant and are available in various IP ratings. Cabinets, frames and antenna housings are 316 stainless steel grade.
