Valmet High Solids Measurement - Valmet HS

Continuous accurate measurement of over 30% total solids for a wide range of industrial applications utilizes microwave technology to make a continuous and accurate solids measurement. Valmet HS makes it possible to optimize total solids levels and follow up in real time the performance of dewatering or drying processes.

  • Above 30% solids (1...70% moisture)
  • More accurate process control, chemical and energy savings
  • Reliable screw based sampling
  • Built in calibration routine
  • Industrial Internet remote access

Controls using the accurate dry solids measurement provided by Valmet HS can be used to fully optimize a variety of processes.
