Choosing the most appropriate moisture measurement regarding customised producition processes more often is a long-term project. Advantages and disadvantages of the several measuring methods and products need to be weighed up against each other thoroughly. This article should give you a shoert review of all esablished moisture measuring methods.

What are the common moisutre measuring technologies?

The general term "moisture measurement" can be divided into moisture measuring sensors for bulk goods and gas moisture measuring sensors. This article deals with the moisture measuring principles for detecting the water content of bulk solids, powders and granulates. The most common used moisture measuring methods for online moisture sensors measuring the water content of bulk solids are methods working with electrical or optical methods (conductive, capacitive, microwave, NIR). The following chart shows the categorization of moisture measuring principles concerning the chemically and physically characteristics. Detecting the moisture of bulk goods is necessary for many industry branches like:
