Product description

There are a number of methods to measure moisture or water content of granules but it is difficult to measure this accurately. In addition to complicated and time-consuming measurement procedures there is a relative electrical method of measurement that can be used exploiting the resistance or the electrical properties of the material. The water content of a material can be calculated by determining the so-called dielectric constant of the given material. The new sensor type FH A696-GF1 from AHLBORN works on this principle. When the electrode is dipped into the test material, a high frequency electric field passes through the material being measured. A microprocessor receives the measurement signals and determines from the measured values the average curve, and so calculates total water content. A special characteristic enables it to measure different granules and ensures an appropriate accuracy. The measuring range is from 0.0 to 99.9% water content in percentage weight of H2O. The moisture sensor type FH A696-G1 comes with two screw-extensions (total length 500 mm) and can be connected to any ALMEMO device. As with all ALMEMO devices many different sensors are adaptable, and can be read by a single meter which can be configured for additional applications.
