Fossil raw materials/petrochemistry

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.

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.

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.
