Moisture and flow measurement solutions in powders and granulaes

In different processes of the food and beverage industry, is important to measure the bulk material flow and moisture in line, such as flours, sugar, powder milk, powders and granulates in general.

This quantification is needed to know the production, material reception or dispatch, mass balance inventory or process control.

Powder or granulated products used in the food and beverage industry

Grains: corn, oatmeal, malt, barley, rice.
Powders: flours, powder milk, sugar, salt, yeast, pectin.

Transportation of these products is done via pneumatic systems, mechanical and sliding conveyors.
