    How Are You Controlling Moisture in Your Product?

    Moisture measurement and control is a crucial aspect in the bioenergy application; it is vital to the correct operation of biomass boilers and for the assessment of a load of fuel. Most wood fuel boilers are designed to operate with a fuel moisture content of a limited range; feeding fuel that is outside this tolerated range could cause the boiler to result in inefficiency or malfunction. MoistTech’s new IR3000 Moisture Sensor allows you to do instant, non-contact, continuous moisture measurement with zero maintenance.
    Increase your profits and eliminate waste by installing a MoistTech Corp. IR3000 sensor today!
