Moisture measuring of Apple pomace

At the production of apple juice there accrues a great amount of apple pomace, that finds its use as animal feeding or as flavouring in pharma industry. To enable a storing of pomace in silos a complex drying is necessary. ACO sensors measure the residual moisture of pomace in real-time in the dryer. The sensor has been integrated into a chute, on which the pomace slides across. Based on the precise measurement the aimed moisture can exactly be achieved by controlling the dryer in an optimal and energy-efficient way.
