Principle of Operation
The HumiCore in-line (on-line) moisture measuring system for continuous process monitoring guarantees trouble-free measurement of the internal product moisture of solids and emulsions. The HumiCore moisture sensor circuitry principle is centered around an electrical high frequency field. The HumiCore is based on technology that has been developed and proven by Muetec Instruments over several years.
With no material present, the ambient air is the dielectric component of the electrical high frequecy field. The dielectric constant of air is one. When the process is active, bulk material passing in front of the sensor face displaces the ambient air and becomes the dielectric for the electrical high frequency field. As the dielectric constant increases, it also causes a change in the electrical high frequency field. That change is processed by the electronics, is compensated for temperature, and is sent to the controller or transmitter. Given the sensor output, a control system or the available controller can now quantify and display the moisture content of the material passing by the sensor face. The area of material influence is typically 7.75 inches (200mm) from the sensor surface. Calibration is a short and simple procedure. The HumiCore sensor can provide a high precision measurement (0.1% to 0.3% typical). The in-line measuring system for process monitoring guarantees trouble-free measurement of the internal product moisture of solids and emulsions.

A complete HumiCore Ultra system consists of the controller and the sensor. The controller provides graphic user interface with softkeys and a clearly arranged display of the measured, alarm and MIN/MAX values, combined with easy editing and parameterization for simple operation. In addition, up to 24 different product parameters can be stored in the controller to accommodate product or process changes.
A complete HumiCore PRO system consists of the DIN-Rail transmitter and the mass flow measurement sensor. The DIN-Rail transmitter allows for easy integration into an existing control system. Calibration software is provided. In addition, up to 24 different product parameters can be recorded to accommodate product or process changes.
