Product Overview

Smart RF Moisture Analyzer for Industrial Manufacturing

The Sensortech ST-3300 is a smart analyzer for process moisture measurement and control of materials used in chemical, mining, textiles, agriculture, and other industrial industries. Used by quality assurance professionals, the ST-3300 improves methods for controlling moisture at key areas in a manufacturing process, helping operations conserve energy, reduce waste, increase capacity, and generate revenue.

Since many materials used in industrial processes have quality standards relating to moisture, the ST-3300 is a smart, simple, and effective solution to help operators manage and control moisture at critical stages of their process. As a radio frequency dielectric measurement (RF) technology, the ST-3300 provides a rapid and complete moisture profile of products at full line speeds.

How It Works

Full Moisture Profiling With Penetrating RF Technology

ST-3300 utilizes RF technology, which is a penetrating measurement method that uses radio frequency dielectric measurements to analyze the full moisture composition of the product. It is an alternative moisture measurement to near infrared (NIR) technology, which measures the surface of a product without penetrating. This article explains the key differences between NIR and RF.

As product passes across rollers, the ST-3300 transmits a RF signal from the upper and lower sensor electrodes surrounding the passing material. The measurement area at the bottom of the sensor antenna measures the moisture conditions in the local environment. This reading is displayed in real-time on a PC, laptop, or optional touch screen display, allowing operators to adjust their process to control moisture or other parameters as needed.

System Components

The ST-3300 features a patented radio frequency (RF)measurement principle enhanced by all-digital phase lock loop signal conditioning, presenting a radically improved standard of resolution and stability. Signal processing capabilities are integrated into the transmitter electronics, which interfaces directly with a PC, PLC, HMI, or other preferred platform. User-friendly configuration software manages the operation of theST-3300 from a PC, laptop, or optional touch screen display.

The ST-3300 is an open-frame configuration that is installed between conveying belts or rollers existing or entering a kiln or dryer.

  • Antenna lengths available from 15 cm – 244 cm (6- 96 in.), dependent upon operating temperature
  • Ideally suited for board materials (gypsum, plywood, etc.)
