Product Description

The COMM-connect 5505 Microwave Moisture Measurement System (MMMS) is designed to measure the moisture percentage in dry matter feedstock for biomass fired power plants. The measurement is realized using fixed sets of transmitters and receivers. The typical installation is measuring 2 pieces ”Hesston 4800” straw bales measured side by side, giving a nominal distance of 2x120 cm (2x4 ft.). On each side of each set of bales there are three measurement units spread symmetrical around the centerlines. The MMMS is a highly flexible system, and multiple topologies for measuring moisture content is possible.

The measurement units consists of microwave transmitters with a directional antennas mounted on one side and microwave receivers with directional antennas mounted on the opposite side of the bales/containers.
