Digital Microwave Moisture Measurement for Concrete, Asphalt and Process Industries from Hydronix

The Hydro-Mix XT digital microwave moisture sensor can be mounted in many different locations where there is a continuous flow of material across the ceramic faceplate. These include drying, ducting, conveying and mixing systems. The sensor is flush mounted with the internal wall of the installation ensuring uninterrupted flow of the material as it passes across the sensor.

Brief details for mounting the Hydro-Mix XT sensor in different types of mixer can be found below, and full details regarding both installation and calibration can be found in the User Guide.

Typical Examples for Mounting a Hydro-Mix XT Sensor

Single / Twin Shaft Mixers

The Hydro-Mix XT should ideally be positioned on the end wall of the mixer, 30° from vertical and on the upstroke of the blade.

Ducting Systems

The sensor is installed in ducting so that the sensing surface is flush mounted with the internal wall. There should always be an overflow of material through the ducting to ensure a consistent material flow.

Screw Conveyors
