MoistTech Packs for Vancouver this Fall!

Vancouver, BC is arguably one of the most beautiful places in North America – and MoistTech will be there this September! The Wood Pellet Association of Canada is hosting the 2018 AGM & Conference September 18 & 19, 2018.

The Wood Pellet Association of Canada Conference and AGM is Canada’s largest gathering of the Canadian wood pellet industry. The WPAC Conference and AGM is your opportunity to learn about the most important issues from industry experts around the globe.  

Each year, the event attracts hundreds of wood pellet, biomass and bioenergy professionals from across the country, as well the U.S., Europe and Asia, to discuss the issues that are having an impact on the industry here in Canada.

Moisture in Wood Pellets

Manufacturing wood pellets requires the refining, drying and blending of wood waste prior to entering the pellet press. By integrating MoistTech’s IR3000 into the process, users can monitor 100% of their product quality, instantly and consistently. Measuring moisture throughout the wood pelletizing process will produce pellets at a specific moisture percentage preventing the out of specification when the product is too wet or too dry. Additionally, pro-active adjustments can be made to the process, to optimize pellet manufacturing.

All purchasing of wood fuel should be based by weight. In this practice the moisture content is critical to knowing how much you are paying for your energy. The higher the moisture content of incoming fuel results in overpaying for wood fuel. Due to this very importance MoistTech has many installations located at truck dumps, incoming fuel conveyors and reclaiming systems.

Unlike other instrumentation of this type, some of the unique features of the IR3000 is that it can monitor the product even with small gaps in product flow and is unaffected by ambient light without impacting the accuracy. The IR3000 is also ideal for installations on chain conveyors and screw conveyors.
