Since 1996

Dryzone is a high tech Moisture Content (MC) Measuring system in operation since 1996. Its used to improve control of the final moisture content during drying. Its also a valuable tool for the kiln operators to improve quality and kiln throughput.

How it works

The charge moisture content is shown on the computer screen from green to dry, helping kiln operators to improve schedules. Dryzone has the capability to measure above 90% and can accurately determine transition through fibre saturation point.

Configuration

Measurement

Sensor plates are inserted into the stack to apply an electromagnetic wave.

Electronic measure units mounted on the kiln wall connected to plates.

OR wireless measure units inside the kiln connected to plates.

Data is transmitted to kiln control room.

Moisture content graphically shown on monitor.

Benefits

  • Easy and quick to install sensor plates
  • Precise endpoint determination of drying
  • Average moisture content per stack measured,not point measurements
  • Increased throughput and reduced drying time
  • Less overdrying
  • No manual checking of MC required

Aquscan  uses a robust sensor head – manufactured from solid steel. No electronics is located near the sensor head. The sensor head is mounted 30 mm below the moving board.

How it works

A key feature of AquScan is the design where the electronics is mounted safely away from the path of moving boards travelling at high speed.  This unit converts the moisture reading to a data signal. Low frequencies are employed to minimise the effect of density variation on moisture content.

Key Features

Individual moisture measurements are taken rapidly. The data is send from the Measuring unit to a computer via digital communication.

Transversal or longitinal installations are available. With transversal configuration boards move crosswise over the sensor heads. A maximum of ten measuring heads can be installed.

With longitudinal configuration boards move lengthwise over the sensor head.

Robust sensor head

Accurate, typically within 1%

Simplified installation

Low maintenance

Reporting and sorting capabilities

Data exported into database or logfile

Sorting

Boards not conforming to specification can be marked, or dropped out via digital communication with PLC.

Moisture content data files (typically indexed per charge no) is saved on the PC where the moisture content distribution, average moisture content and standard deviation is calculated.

Reporting

Batch Reporting: The statistical information is presented per batch (defined by the user). Average, Standard deviation, % wets, % overdried are calculated

Board by board data exported to logfile, csv format or database

Boards not conforming to specification can be marked, or dropped out via digital communication with PLC.

Moisture content data files (typically indexed per charge no) is saved on the PC where the moisture content distribution, average moisture content and standard deviation is calculated.
