Controlling of the Gypsum production at E.ON “MPP3”  based on a moisture measuring system from ACO
Controlling of the Gypsum production at E.ON “MPP3”
based on a moisture measuring system from ACO E.ON „MPP3“ coal fired power plant in Rotterdam-Maasvlakte The “MPP3” is the most modern and biggest hard coal fired power plant with the notable gross power rating of net 1070 MW and a net efficiency of over 46%. The “MPP3” wants to reduce the effects on the environment as much as possible. One point to reach an environmental friendly process is the optimisation of the exhaust-desulphurisation unit. The desulphurisation is made by a wet flue gas cleaning unit controlled by a moisture measurement. This flue gas desulphurisation (FGD) is far more effective than in other traditional coal fired power plants. Beyond the “MPP3” can reach a biomass-combustion up to 30%. Of course the district heating is used from the adjacent companies. General description of the process The desulphurisation is based on burnt lime (CaO) thereby the end product gypsum (calciumsulfad-dihydrat) arises. For the analysis of the produced gypsum there is an in-house

Feuchtemessung - ein Muss in der Holzindustrie increasing quality – increasing efficiency – saving money
Feuchtemessung - ein Muss in der Holzindustrie
increasing quality – increasing efficiency – saving money The field of application for wood is extremely varied. Using wood as a renewable energy source is one of the fastest growing application area for wood. In this kind of timber industry wood is processed in quiet different ways. A few examples for usable material- or transport forms are wood-chips, wood-pellets, wood-shavings or sawdust. To reach a highly effective combustion in the wood-burning ovens a moisture measurement is absolutely essential. On one hand a moisture measurement is able to measure the exact residual moisture in the material. The quality of all produced wooden bulk-materials increases highly by using a moisture measurement. And on the other hand there is also the possibility to raise the efficiency of a plant through optimizing cost-intensive drying- and irrigation processes. A very important aspect by installing a moisture measurement sensor is a well conceived mounting position in the production plant. Every production plant has its own individual

How does the capacitive measuring principle work? - the function of a moisture sensors explained easily!
How does the capacitive measuring principle work?
- the function of a moisture sensors explained easily! There are plenty of different measuring methods to determine the residual moisture of material such as bulk solids. Now we are focusing on the capacitive functional principle. Inter alia it finds its use in in-line moisture measurement (directly integrated within a working process). It can be classified into two methods of moisture measurement, direct and indirect. Direct measuring procedures are e.g. the Karl-Fischer-Tritation or drying out material (loss of water by using a drying cabinet, probably the most often used method). Moisture sensors and systems belong to the indirect moisture measuring techniques as they allow conclusion concerning the water content by using for example the capacitive moisture measuring principle. Further possible measurements work with microwave, infrared or conductance methods. The main criteria is that these procedures do not detect the residual moisture of the bulk solids directly. Rather they use their physical characteristics

Increased Efficiency and Consistency with Moisture Control
Product Quality from Lab to Line: Save time and money by instant on-line, off-line and laboratory moisture measurement with Near-infrared (NIR) technology Moisture measurement and control analyzers can be found in thousands of applications all over the world as they save manufacturers a large amount of time and money by quickly detecting variables in the manufacturing process and allowing corrections to be made in real time. Near-infrared (NIR) technology for instant on-line, off-line and laboratory moisture instrumentation is unsurpassed in performance and accuracy over competing technologies. Fast and nondestructive analysis NIR spectroscopy and imaging are fast and nondestructive analytical techniques that provide chemical and physical information of virtually any matrix. Near-infrared can tell us things about a product in a similar way to visible light. When light hits a product, it will interact in various ways; transmitted light will pass through the product while backscattered light will reflect from the product and light will also be absorbed by the product, which is key in NIR analysis.

Measuring Moisture in Grain, Nuts and Pulses Hydronix sensors successfully measure moisture in all types of grain, whole kernel corn, wheat or maize as well as cut maize and flaked oats.
Measuring Moisture in Grain, Nuts and Pulses
Hydronix sensors successfully measure moisture in all types of grain, whole kernel corn, wheat or maize as well as cut maize and flaked oats. Moisture Control in grain Controlling moisture in grain, nuts and pulses throughout different stages of processing can be one of the biggest problems for manufacturers. All sorts of factors will affect the moisture level in the raw product; how it is stored, humidity in the atmosphere, the variety of the grain and also its particle size. All of these will have a contributing factor in the amount of moisture that either needs to be added or evaporated during processing. Hydronix sensors successfully measure moisture in all types of grain, whole kernel corn, wheat or maize as well as cut maize and flaked oats. Benefits * Reduction in energy costs as the correct amount of energy required for drying can be accurately calculated * Reduction in amount of wasted materials * Consistent, repeatable quality end product Correct drying Correct moisture control during the drying or conditioning of the grain or other similar materials enables a direct cost reduction in

Moisture Measurement in Aggregates and Sand
Hydronix microwave moisture measurement has proved to be invaluable industries that use sand or aggregates to increase the accuracy of batching and slump control. Modern plants can weigh aggregates with an accuracy of up to ± 0.5%. If the amount of moisture in a batch of sand or aggregates varies from between 2% to 10% then this will affect the accuracy and proportions of the weighed materials since water is effectively being weighed and not dry materials. Benefits * Reduction in number of spoilt batches * Ability to batch the correct weight of sand regardless of water content * Ability to set high or low moisture levels alarms Moisture sensors can measure moisture levels in materials being discharged from bins, on conveyor belts or within vibratory feeders. The sensors are placed directly in the flow of the material, and take 25 measurements per second as the sand or aggregate flows over the ceramic measurement surface. These measurements are then transmitted to the plant control system in real time. This allows the manufacturer to accurately control water addition during processing and ensures that batches are of a
