Strandberg Launches Microwave Moisture Sensor
Strandberg Engineering Laboratories Inc., a Greensboro, N.C.-based provider of sensors and controls
for process automation, has introduced the Microwave Moisture Sensor Type 9900. The sensor employs
the latest microwave reflectance technology to measure web and bulk material moisture levels from
very dry to full saturation. It can be used in a variety of applications, such as measuring wet
pickup on sizing machines and padders; moisture after atomizer spraying; and residual moisture on
fabrics and carpets after drying; among other applications.
This non-contact moisture sensor supplies a linear output signal that can be connected to the Moisture Monitor Model 7701 Indication Controller or to programmable logic controllers and other instrumentation.
