MC PRO Moisture Meters

KilnScout

Wireless in-kiln timber moisture meter
KilnScout is an innovative wireless in-kiln moisture meter developed for both continuous and batch lumber dry kilns to maximize production and minimize variation. The sensors show the measured moisture through the whole drying cycle. The package movement decision in a continuous kiln can be a function of the moisture content value in for instance the last package in two different phases. In general, the use of Kiln Scout results in a more uniform moisture content and shorter drying times.

Benefits
•    Wireless moisture meter for batch and continuous kilns
•    Accurately measures moisture content and temperature
•    Wireless transmission up to 90 feet
•    Scalable from 1 to 100 sensors
•    Easily integrates with existing kiln controls

MC Pro 1500

Moisture sorting in transverse lines in sawmills
Using innovative digital pulse technology, the MC Pro 1500 takes multiple measurements of a board as it passes over its non-contact sensors. Multiple sensors can be arranged in a transverse configuration along the length of the board. Suitable for moisture sorting into 2-3 categories prior to drying.

Benefits
•    Non-contact sensors.
•    Background suppression eliminates the need for sensor calibration.
•    Easily integrates with PLCs.
•    Advanced technology compensates for board warp and wood temperature
•    Capacity over 200 lugs per minute

MC Pro 2400

Moisture content in dry timber on transverse lines
Using innovative digital pulse technology, the MC Pro 2400 takes multiple measurements of a board as it passes over its non-contact sensors. Sensors are arranged in a transverse configuration along the length of the board to measure final moisture content and identify wet spots for either drop-out or trim decisions.

Benefits
•    Non-contact sensors.
•    Background suppression eliminates the need for sensor calibration.
•    Easily integrates with PLCs.
•    Advanced technology compensates for board warp and wood temperature
•    Certified according to EN standards for glulam and fingerjointing
•    Capacity over 200 lugs per minute

MC Pro 2500

In-Line Planer Meter
The MC Pro 2500 automatically measures and reports moisture content in the planer mill using high-speed digital pulse technology. The non-contact sensor, configured linearly, measures moisture content, board temperature and vertical movement, assuring unsurpassed accuracy. Output as average/peak and/or every single measured moisture value along the timber (moisture profile)

Benefits
•    Non-contact sensor.
•    Background suppression eliminates the need for sensor calibration.
•    Easily integrates with PLCs.
•    Compensates for board temperature.
•    Compensates for vertical board movement.
•    Certified according to EN standards for glulam and finger jointing
•    Capacity up to 1000 m/min

MC Pro 910

Surface moisture meter for various products and line types
Surface meter 910 measures the surface moisture in various types of materials and fractions. Applications: panels, chips, paper, coffee, milk powder, nuts, textile and more.

Benefits
•    Measurement range 0-60%
•    Very high accuracy and repeatability
•    Simple calibration procedure
