Moisture and water content determination
Liebherr has been developing measurement systems for industrial automation since 1985. Our sensors reliably determine the moisture or water content in various materials and liquids. The benefit of Liebherr measurement systems is high precision thanks to 40 measurements per second, as well as the sensors' reproducibility. The systems can be integrated in various production facilities such as on conveyor belts, upstream and downstream of dryers, at transfer points, in hoppers but also in pipelines or tanks. Our systems measure, monitor and regulate the humidity or water content automatically and in real time. Continuous measurement guarantees high precision.
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.
Reliability that promotes trust
We test each sensor over the entire working temperature range in a process that takes several hours.
When Liebherr started producing sensors, we used the measurement systems that we developed ourselves only in our own concrete mixing plants. The sensors determine the sand moisture in the running 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.
Examples of uses for fossil raw materials/petrochemistry
Water content of liquids
Integrated in pipelines, the FMS/WMS determines the water content in oils, diesel and other emulsions in both ex-free and ex-protected ambient conditions of the applicable equipment category II 1 G to Zone 0.
Moisture determination in coal
Installed above a conveyor belt, the sensor slides over the coal by means of sliding shoe carriages (sensors with explosion protection available, up to applicable equipment category II 1 D for zone 20).
Moisture measurement in biomass
The Liebherr moisture measuring installations guarantee that the target moisture is adhered to exactly when processing natural materials.
Water content determination in gear and engine oils
The P30-S sensor is particularly space-saving and reliably measures the moisture or water content in liquids such as diesel, gear oil and much more.
Water content measurement - Litronic-WMS II
These products are available for applications in the field of fossil raw materials and petrochemistry.
Determination of the water content in liquids (emulsions/oils) and bulk solids in explosion-protected areas is possible with our WMS product family.Find out more
Litronic FMS P78
Thousands of sensors are reliably in use worldwide by this sensor in a wide variety of materials and industries.Find out more
Litronic FMS RMH12
The pipe sensor was specially developed for determining the smallest amounts of water (trace moisture) in liquids. The sensor in conjunction with the FMS III evaluation and transfer unit is used, for example, in test and trial systems for monitoring the water separation ability in diesel fuel filters.Find out more
Litronic FMS P30-S
The smallest of the sensors was specially developed for confined spaces and impresses with its compact design. We offer suitable weld-on fittings for use in pipelines.Find out more
Litronic FMS P80-CAN
Our CAN-capable sensor sends the signals directly to the customer's control and is processed on site.
The plug-in sensor is specially designed for on and off-road applications, vehicles in construction and agricultural areas as well as in engine applications.Find out more
Litronic FMS II Evaluation and transfer module
The modular design allows networking of up to 16 sensors on one evaluation unit. Extensive signal processing options for transfer to a higher-level control and the exact and fast calibration of the measured sections are just some of the many advantages.Find out more
Litronic FMS IV Evaluation and transfer module
To meet the requirements of our customers, the new generation of the evaluation unit is based on ProfiNet data transmission. With the Ethernet standard, you and we react more flexibly and quickly to new and special requirements in process automation.Find out more
