Biomass power plants typically receive a massive number of biomass loads from various suppliers. Sources vary from logging areas to recycled wood. The moisture content of delivered loads varies drastically depending on time of the year, biomass source and supplier grade.
Moisture content defines significantly caloric value of biomass as well as paid price of each load as invoicing is mostly based on the mass of delivered load.
Rapid and reliable moisture analysis of samples taken from every load is the key factor for fair real value analysis. The BMA-Moisture Analyzer provides fast moisture value for rapid reporting back to the load suppliers and provides base for biomass value analysis on a short and a long run.
Pulp Mills have similar needs when receiving chips for digesters. Received fibre mass is the key factor in digester performance and every paid water ton drastically effects the economics of operations.
