Biomass Moisture Control for Pellet ProductionThe Moisture Control Problem
There is usually a biomass moisture content (MC) entering the pelletizers that produce the best pellet quality. However, biomass moisture content (MC) entering the dryer can vary significantly, thereby, preventing traditional MC sensing and control methods from maintaining the optimum target MC with a low standard deviation.
Delta T Moisture Control Solution
The Delta T MC Sensing and Control System solved the three main problems with currently-used MC sensing and control methods: These solutions are:
Benefits of Delta T Solution
Figure (1) depicts MC control of biomass for pellets destined for power plant or domestic heating use after replacement of currently-used MC sensing and control system with the Delta T that maintains the target with at least 30% less MC variation. (Read Article)
