ProcessOPT BO

Measurement of humidity and other parameters in wood board production. High accuracy - no drift - accurate even when density and material color changes - long term stability.

The material parameter "humidity" and other parameters in the wood board production, e.g. the MDF-/HDF- or OSB production are often used as a key variable for the plant control system. Therefore, high accuracy of the online humidity signal is most important. Further, the online information has to be available permanently, in real time, drift-free when moisture content, grain size, density or color of the material change significantly. "Classical" technologies are not able to match these requirements with long-term stability and without recalibration.

APOS product ProcessOPT BO applies the patented APOS NIR technology as used in many biomass powerplants, where APOS' systems are used to measure water content, ash content and calorific value of the biomass. The values generated can be visualized in real time and/or transferred to a leading process control system. APOS offers multiple interfacing technologies.
