L&W Felt Moisture Meter

Are you looking for support or purchase information?

L&W Felt Moisture Meter measures moisture in both machine direction (MD) and cross direction (CD) up to 3000 gH2O/m². The instrument can also measure felt length as well as giving measurement positions. Regular measurements with L&W Felt Moisture Meter are the key to optimal dewatering in the press section and lead to fewer problems with machine disturbances and downtime – which in turn means substantial cost savings.

Regular measurements with L&W Felt Moisture Meter are the key to optimal dewatering in the press section and lead to fewer problems with machine disturbances and downtime – which in turn means big cost savings. By measuring the felt’s water content, before and after the press, dewatering can be easily optimized. Effective dewatering in the press section can reduce energy consumption in the drying section and increase production considerably; a 1% increase of dry content in the press section gives a 4% reduction in energy use in the dryer section. To optimize dewatering, action should be taken in the press section to avoid additional energy costs in the dryer section – something that quickly pays for itself.

Features/Benefits

  • 1% increase of the dry content in the press section = 4% reduction in energy use in the dryer section
  • Pinpoints any problems in the press felt
  • Access to comprehensive data
  • Control felt quality and reduce production costs
  • Enables you to take the right action in time
