Wood has played an important role in human life and has been used by humans since early Palaeolithic times. Wood is a highly versatile material and remains the preferred choice when it comes to construction, flooring, furniture, shipbuilding, tools and fuel. The durability of wood is often a function of water/moisture content, and wood product manufacturers are continuously working on improving the quality and durability of their products, relying heavily on the ability to monitor moisture and other key constituents.
Accurate and reliable Near-Infrared (NIR)analyzers for wood products enables manufacturers better quality control and cost savings. NIR instrumentation from KPM Analytics produces robust and repeatable measurements of moisture, resins, wax and other parameters with no need for routine maintenance or calibration. Custom-designed enclosures allow the analyzers to be installed in exceptionally harsh environments throughout multiple wood processes.
KPM Analytics has three decades of experience in NIR technologies and moisture detection. We offer a full line of analysis systems that help manufacturers meet end-product quality and profit goals.
