MoistScan® MA-600SS Single Sensor Moisture Analyzer

General Description

The MoistScan® MA-600SS moisture sensor was designed to alleviate the problems associated with highly attenuating material and extremebed depth ranges. The unique design of the MA-600SS uses a single microwave sensor that penetrates using a half sphere of approximately 20cm radius. The MoistScan® MA-600SS utilizes the latest updates in Callidan’s patented microwave technology. By closely monitoring both phase & attenuation changes within the analysis zone accurate predictions in moisture content can be determined. The installation fo the sensor is simple. The MA-600SS can also be configured to provide control of external devices such as analogue or digital valves which control water addtion or feed rates. Callidan have the expertise required to design a customized solution for your requirements. The MA-600SS can be “pre-calibrated” providing the client can send a 10 Litre sample to Callidan’s calibration facility.
