SWR engineering: Moisture Measurement in Wood Pellet Production to ensure Material Quality

Schliengen, Germany – A manufacturer of wood pellets processes raw materials such as planing chips or wood chips (wood waste) to produce wood pellets. To ensure optimal adjustment of the drying process, the company uses SWR engineering‘s M-Sens 2 moisture sensor. The moisture is measured while the material is transported by a screw conveyor from the oven to the storage silo.

Bacterial heating of cereals and meals

 

Reading the article “Wood Pellet Combustible Dust Incidentsof John Astad, I remembered the following.

 

All biological products are subject to deterioration.

This deterioration is caused by micro organisms (bacteria and micro flora)

 To prevent bacterial deterioration, it is necessary to condition the circumstances in such a way that micro organisms cannot grow.

 

1)      By killing the micro organisms through sterilization, pasteurization or conservation. In transport also the gassing with methyl bromide is common but not without danger.

2)      Creating an environment that micro organisms cannot develop by f.i. adding acids, salt, sweet or drying and cooling.

 

In storing cereals, grains, seeds, and derivatives, drying is the mostly used method to prevent bacterial heating.

 To prevent bacterial deterioration those materials need to be DRY before storing.
