Liebherr has been developing measurement systems for industrial automation since 1985. Our sensors reliably determine the moisture in various materials. The benefit of Liebherr measurement systems is high precision thanks to 40 measurements per second, as well as the sensors' reproducibility.
Sensors are developed and manufactured at the Liebherr-Mischtechnik GmbH location in Bad Schussenried (Germany). Here, we produce and calibrate the sensors in an environment protected against ESD.
Competence due to experience
When Liebherr started producing sensors, we used the measurement systems that we developed ourselves only in our own concrete mixing plants. Here, the sensors are used to determine the sand moisture in the process. For this task, we developed sensors that work reliably even under extreme outdoor conditions. Our experience in concrete technology pays off for our customers: Liebherr sensors measure precisely and have a long service life.
Wide range of applications
The application areas for the perfected measurement system have expanded enormously in the interim. Thanks to numerous interfaces, the sensors can be integrated without problems into various production processes. Customers around the world therefore benefit from Liebherr sensors. The clientèle ranges from automotive suppliers in the USA, a paper factory in the Netherlands and a sugar producer on Guadeloupe.
Moisture measurement in building materials
The FMS II moisture measuring unit enables raw materials such as sand and other aggregates to be used efficiently.
Moisture measurement in the paper and cardboard industry
Our moisture measurement systems also guarantee high quality products when producing paper, film and cardboard boxes.
Moisture measurement in glass production
Well-known glass manufacturers also rely on the Liebherr Litronic-FMS II moisture measurement systems.
Moisture measurement for wood processing
The Liebherr moisture measurement systems guarantee that the target moisture is adhered to exactly when processing natural materials.
Moisture measurement in agriculture
Mobile machinery in agriculture (e.g. combine harvesters, maize choppers or straw balers). Monitoring the moisture of the crop with the Litronic-FMS.
Measurements in confined spaces
The P30 sensor is particularly space saving and measures the moisture in powder, fine bulks and liquids reliably.
Water content of diesel and oil
The FMS II is integrated in pipes and determines the water content in oil, diesel and other emulsions.
