As a proud PFI member MoistTech is excited for PFI Annual Conference in beautiful Ashville North
Carolina at The Grove Park Inn July 28-30 We will be in booth 46!
measurement and control is a crucial aspect of the wood pellet 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 are able to monitor 100% of their product
quality, instantly and consistently. Measuring moisture throughout
the wood pelletizing process will produce the 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.
Installation with MoistTech is
simple, MoistTech recommends installing sensors in several locations
throughout the pellet process.
First, installing
a sensor prior to the dryer will monitor the moisture levels going in. Too
dry of a product will result in over drying causing a dusty, ambient
environment but could also result in a fire. Installing sensors after the
dryer, prior to the pelletizer will also result in significant cost
savings. Product too dry will prevent pellets compacting and not molding
together very well. Product too wet could cause the pelletizer to plug up both
resulting in shutting down the line and product waste.
moisture sensing requirements in the wood pellets


MoistTech is
very experienced with the moisture sensing requirements in the wood pellets as
we have many installations in wood pellet plants throughout the United States
and Canada.
