Tech Tip #1 ---------
Ensuring Product Quality with In-Line Moisture Measurement System
HumiCore Ultra System
I n-line (also referred to as on-line) moisture monitoring systems are being used by manufacturers of all types of goods to verify that the product being packaged is at the proper moisture level to ensure the best quality of the finished products for their consumers.
Some of the main criteria that a company should consider when choosing an in-line system include:

  • Ability to easily incorporate the sensor into their process and receive continuous, real-time measurements instead of having to take multiple laboratory samples.
  • Capability to measure the moisture to the product's core instead of just the surface to increase the consistency of the measurements.
  • Ability to receive fast and precise measurements with accuracy.
  • Durability of the sensor and the sensing surface to withstand a particular product's characteristics (ex. abrasive).
  • Capability to have the sensor output communicate with an existing control system to receive alarms and control the processes or the option of a local operator interface / controller.

Tech Tip #2 --------------------
Insertable Paddle Simplifies Installation of Bin Level Switch 
SafePoint with Insertable Paddle
SafePoint® Level Sensor with
Insertable Paddle
Monitor Technologies offers a 2-vane collapsible paddle that is insertable from the outside of a bin or silo through a 1-1/4" NPT or 1-1/2" BSPT coupling. This stainless steel paddle assembly can be used with Monitor's SafePoint® fail-safe and Model KA / KAX rotary paddle level switches. The "spring" action of the paddle also allows it to be removed from the same opening if needed. The 2-vane design and the 8.66" (220 mm) turning diameter allow the paddle to provide dependable level indication for average bulk density materials. This paddle can be used with level switches that are mounted vertically or horizontally.  

Choosing a paddle...   
Monitor Technologies offers a wide selection of interchangeable paddle assemblies for the Model KA / KAX and SafePoint® level sensors to meet the needs of a variety of materials / applications.
