Hydro-Mix XT-EX Microwave Sensor
The Hydro-Mix XT-EX has been designed to measure moisture in flowing bulk solids such as animal feed, grain, rice, pulses and also in liquids. The sensor can be easily installed in ducting, conveying and mixing systems. It is suitable for Zone 20 process environments (Zone 21 external to process).
Body: 316 Stainless Steel.
Internal Seals: EPDM FDA Approved O-Rings. Fixing Plate O-Ring: EPDM FDA Approved
The sensor is flush mounted with the internal wall of the installation using the included mounting assembly.
Moisture: 0-100%, material dependant.
Depth: Approx. 75-100mm, material dependant.
