Use

The M-Sens 2 is used for the continuous measurement of humidity on solids 
of all kinds.
 
The M-Sens 2 sensor can ideally be used, for example in container outlets, conveyor belts, conveyor screws, mixers and conveyor dryers.
 
It is important that the measuring surface of the sensor is always covered with material. The M-Sens 2 is a contact-measuring procedure. The ceramic disc (measuring surface) must always be covered with material.

Function

The M-Sens 2-sensor works with precise high-frequency measurements and direct digitalisation of the measurement values and thus a high resolution. 
Since the surface and capillary humidity of a material has a strong influence on its dielectric constant, the humidity can be determined exactly given a constant medium bulk density. By way of support, any fluctuations of the measuring value caused by the bulk density are balanced through an internal filter function. Temperature-related fluctuations of the measuring value are automatically compensated by the sensor. The calibration of the system can easily be carried out by the operator. On the installed system, the calibration is a matter of pushing a button and entering the humidity reference value.

Mounting and Installation

Flexible positioning
The M-Sens 2 was developed to offer maximum flexibility during assembly. The following aspects should be taken into account in the positioning of the probe: The measuring field penetrates the densest materials (e. g. sand). With a minimum depth of 120 mm, the probe should always be directed at the material to avoid reflection problems. 
    
Installation situations
Container 

For a simple installation, a standard connection flange is available.  

 

 

 

    

    
Conveyor belt

Measurement of material moisture on a conveyor belt.
A constant material height is generated by attaching a material skimmer. This offers ideal conditions for an online measurement.

 

 

    
      

 

 

 

 

 

The installation in the lower third of a conveyor screw has the advantage that the material volume that passes over the sensor is almost constant, allowing for an optimal measurement. The movement of the auger flights is hidden.

 

 

    
      

 

 

 

Free fall pipe


To be able to measure in free fall pipes or inclined pipes (chutes) with the M-Sens 2, it is possible to gather material in front of the probe in the short term, for the duration the measurement, with a catching mechanism. After the measurement, the flap will open again and allows the gathered material to continue to drop. The measuring process can be permanently repeated in short or long intervals according to requirements.
