AquaSense 2280D microwave moisture meter builds on past successes to give you a totally new, reliable moisture sensor that stands up to the rough environment of concrete plants.
AquaSense 2280D is suitable for many different applications for moisture measurement, from aggregate moisture to powdered and granular products.
AquaSense 2280D is a moisture probe or sensor, for use in sand, powders and granulated materials. Its hard ceramic faceplate is rugged and hard wearing, giving 10 to 20 years service in concrete applications.
AquaSense 2280D uses a Windows Graphic User Interface (GUI) for setup and moisture calibration. Here’s how it works:
Hardware for use with AquaSense and AquaMix.
Why do we need moisture measurement in the sand bins? What is the effect on the concrete? Why do we still get variations in slump or moisture? What is a mixer water dosing system? What is a slump meter? Answers to these questions and more below.
Can I take a sensor calibrated for sand and use it on other materials? Can I use AquaSense 2280D’s sampling feature for on-the-fly batch correction? Which is the best output choice, 0-10 volts or 4-20 mA? This page answers your Moisture, Frequently Asked Questions and others.
Aquasense 2280D measures the on-line moisture content of fine aggregates such as sand and crushed stone used in concrete. It will also measure many other granular materials. Its microwave technology eliminates all errors associated with resistance and capacitance methods, guaranteeing an accurate reading every time.
Easy one-hole mounting in the wall of any bin or hopper. This allows the moisture sensor to be inserted into the flow region above the gate. Measurement of the stagnant material between the flow region and the bin wall must be avoided . . . . Read more
You can install the AquaSense 2280D probe in sand without emptying the bin. Just dig a hole and slide it in.
The angle of the sensing head packs the flowing material precisely. This is important to achieve the best accuracy.
Internal software averages the moisture values during the flow period. It also holds this reading between batches.
Industry standard digital interface is compatible with all control systems.
Call us about a trial in your plant; we can arrange it. After your payment is received, we ship your sensor. If you want to return it up to 30 days later, you can do so for full refund.
Chris, the sensors are working great; we periodically do moisture tests to compare and the results are within 0.2% thus far. Stan Dean, General Manager, Milepost Manufacturing, Alberta, Canada, May 2018.
