The First Choice for Near Infrared (NIR) Moisture Measurement in the Wood Products Industry
Robust But Flexible - The MCT360-WP uses a well proven algorithm which works on a wide range of wood varieties and forms. You choose the mode of operation, stand-alone or networked, but you’re never locked in because the network interface module can be fitted retrospectively. Choose measurement output through either a user friendly Operator Interface or PC/PLC Software via RS 232-485 Ethernet, Profibus, Modbus or DeviceNet.
Economical Yet Durable - The MCT360-WP is economical due to its well constructed SMART internal design. It eliminates the need for multiple boards and the accompanying sensor-CPU cabling and conduit without compromising the exterior build quality required for harsh production environments.
Simple and Reliable - The MCT360-WP remains a total hands-off gauge. Upon installation, simply adjust the zero and put the gauge to work! There is no routine maintenance or re-calibration. Calibration check standards are available for confirmation of long term gauge stability.
Put the Gauge to Work
Dryer Input - To adjust feed rate and/or dryer temperature.
Benefits: Operation safety, prevents flash fires. Smooth process operation, no dryer overload. Decreased fuel costs.
Dryer Output - To regulate dryer temperature-manual or closed loop control. To alter the set point in a feed-forward loop. Optimum efficiency is obtained from holding moisture +/-0.2% target prior to storage or resin addition.
Benefits: Cost benefits derived from lower usage of fuel and resin.
Blender Input - To control resin addition. Volume of resin required depends upon dry weight of incoming wood fibers.
Benefits: More efficient use of costly resin. Consistent high board quality.
Blender Output - To monitor resin distribution.
Benefits: Enables quick diagnosis of nozzle and filter blockages. Prevents blown boards, saving on production costs.
Forming Line - A final QC check on the mat means sub-standard mats can be diverted before reaching the press and processing errors can be rectified more quickly.
