WORK Microwave’s sensors use electromagnetic fields to characterize different material properties. Inline sensor applications of microwave sensors include the detection of moisture, residual moisture, mass or density in a wide range of materials.
The utilization of microwave frequencies between 500 MHz and up to 65 GHz have been demonstrated which makes it possible to choose an application-specific optimum frequency range. In combination with a high-speed measurement capability of up to 10,000 measurements per second, the sensors are a perfect fit for demanding in-line applications.
For many applications in the pharma, paper, textile, food, packaging and petrochemical industries, WORK Microwave’s sensor technology and solutions have successfully been integrated. However, the range is not limited to those and individual solutions can be engineered. An overview of already proven implementations is given here:
Water in Oil
A microwave sensor is suitable to measure water content in oil for petrochemical applications, to detect long-term accumulation of water in oil or to implement a process water control.
