Material Moisture Measurement within Filtration Technology
Filter presses are deployed for the liquid/solid separation of various different materials, such as ceramic material, sludge, tensides, oils, food products such as gelatine, fruit juices, grapes, and many others. One issue that has always been a problem at the filtration process was the capability to verify, respectively monitor the pressing process in a manner that generates constant feedback regarding the exact moisture content of the material currently being pressed, With the innovative SONO moisture sensors that features the extensive moisture measurement range of 0 to 100% and a conductivity range of up to 50dS/m, applications for virtually any material are possible.

The enterprise Scharfenberger Maschinenbau (production system engineering), one of the leading providers for the viticultural sector is deploying the innovative SONO-VARIO LD surface probe in its grape presses. The capability to exactly control the moisture content of the grapes during the pressing process ensures the ability to control the tannin content in the wine and consequently assure for the general quality of the wine.

At the INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA HORTITECHNICA 2018 trade fair, the company Scharfenberger Maschinenbau was awarded a prize. The expert jury awarded the measurement of residual moisture content  “HUMIDITY CONTROL” with a SILVER prize in the category „Processing and Process control”.
At the option “+ humidity control“, a special digital sensor precisely measures the residual moisture content in the drum of the press. The current actual value is displayed at the completion of every pressure stage on the touch display of the press control system and can subsequently be directly evaluated. Due to the intelligent pre-processing of the measurement values, the winemaker is able to exactly determine the residual moisture content at which the grape must is separated, or the pressing programme is stopped.
