SFM1 - Compaction unit

Pneumatic compaction unit for sawdust and wood shavings

ACO comaction unit SFM1 for determining the water content of sawdust and wood shavings in a free material flow. Constant measuring conditions are reached through a compaction process (constant material height and density of the biomass).

Precise

Accurate moisture measurement realized by defined material conditions

Optimized

Designed for sawdust in the production process of wood pellets

ACO comaction unit SFM1 inkluding robust housing for detecting the moisture of sawdust and wood shavings in a free material flow. Constant measuring conditions are reached through a compaction process (constant material height and density of the biomass).

Properties:

  • Ideal material conditions for on-line moisture measurement
  • In already existing plants also applicable subsequently
  • Automatic cleaning of sensor surface
  • Optional: compact controller for compaction unit

The compaction unit SFM1 is specially made for the determination of residual moisture for medium-sized up to fine material.  While the pneumatic cylinder moves the "back panel" of the SFM1,  the falling down material can be condensed and pushed across the ACO moisture sensor in constant conditions.  The measuring surface is cleaned automatically. The constant density and steady dumping height of the material enables great measuring results. 

This compaction unit is suitable for measuring sawdust in the production of wood pellets. Therefore it has been successfully used for several years.
