Fastest moisture measurement on the market
Taking up to 5,000 measurements per second, ABB’s patented technology used in the HPIR-R single sided reflection sensor gives you a valuable new tool to understand and improve machine operation. Each calculation is statistically independent resulting in precise, high-resolution measurement that is not
affected by scan or sheet speed.
Confidence to raise moisture targets
With the fastest moisture measurement available today, HPIR-R provides the precise, edge-to-edge measurement that gives operators a high level of confidence to raise moisture targets. This improves profiles, enabling mills to further benefit from decreased steam usage and energy savings opportunities.
Tighter moisture band saves energy costs
With this advanced technology, you know the exact moisture levels at all times, allowing you to run in a tighter moisture target zone. This immediately translates to significant energy cost savings, since you don’t have to over-dry some areas of the sheet to make sure all areas are within your moisture specs. Plus, you can get on-spec faster because you always know your moisture levels, helping to increase production tons and reduce quality losses.
