Moisture Meters

Our technology contributes to more efficient processing of biomass in power plants, dehydration plants and biomass processing plants all over the world.

Welcome to our Moisture Meter division

In today’s world, knowing the moisture value of biomass is of the outmost importance in order to process the biomass most effectively and thus increase the yield, may it be cellulossic ethanol production, dehydration of animal feed, energy production, pellet production or other applications.

Moisture Meter working principle

Our Moisture Meters are suitable for any biomass and
are used in many different applications.

Moisture Meter system

The technical principle is based on microwaves being transmitted through the bale of biomass from one side to the other thus measuring a large amount of material, and hereby ensuring that the moisture value calculated is not only based on a small random sample.

Then working with microwave based moisture meters it is important to consider reflexions from the nearby invironment as they could disturb the measurements.

That apart - the moisture meter need to know the wolume and the weight of the biomass in order to relate the measuring results to the specific biomass being measured.

Moisture Meter models for different applications

We installed our first Moisture Meter The DSE4100 in 1992 at the energy company Dong and have since develloped and produced severel models in our DSE4000 series, which are developed for 24/7 operation in industrial environments.

  • The DSE4130 - a new generation of the DSE4100 - is used for crane applications and measuring bridges for trucks
  • The DSE 4101/4111 is used for conveyer application e.g. measuring dehydrated Alfalfa
  • The DSE4200 is used for baler applications then the biomass is being baled in the field.
  • The DSE4300 for application in process industry for measuring dry matter suspended or dissolved in liquid process streams

We try to maintain a high level market position in this area through our participation in research projects and extensive development and installation of standard measurement solutions.
