The North American moisture sensor with the 10 year guarantee

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 measures the on-line moisture content of fine aggregates such as sand and crushed stone used in concrete as well as many other granular materials. Its microwave technology eliminates all errors associated with resistance and capacitance methods, guaranteeing an accurate reading every time.

Product features

When used for concrete, AquaSense 2280D gives you constant yield, colour/texture, workability, strength and durability when used for batch control . . . . Read more
  • Empty bin detection holds the reading when material falls below the sensor, to avoid spoiled batches.
  • Bin Empty plus two programmable digital alarm outputs give warning of moisture outside limits.
  • Stainless steel body and thick ceramic faceplate for long wear free life.
  • Easy to mount, no need for accurate positioning.  Mounting accessories included in kit.
  • Internal software with Dynamic Calibration allows older readings to be re-used or discarded, making accuracy better.
  • Internal storage of all calibration results makes each sensor independent of external software.
  • Windows Graphic User Interface makes setup and calibration fast and easy.
  • Industry standard digital interface is compatible with all control systems.
  • Call us about a trial in your plant; we can arrange it.


Easy one-hole mounting in the wall of any bin or hopper, allowing insertion of the moisture sensor into the flow region above the gate. Measurement on the stagnant material against the bin wall must be avoided . . . . Read more
  • AquaSense 2280D probe can be installed in sand without emptying the bin by just digging a hole and sliding it in.
  • The angle of the sensing head packs the flowing material precisely to give compacted material. This is important in achieving the best accuracy.
  • Internal software gives an average on-line moisture measurement over the flow period and holds this reading between batches.
  • One-step digital calibration using laptop computer or batching system makes setup simple.
  • Can be calibrated to read either surface moisture or total moisture.
  • Up to 10 material calibration sets can be stored in sensor, for use with multiple ingredients.
  • Consistently more accurate than oven dry tests.
  • AquaSense 2280D on-line moisture sensor is manufactured in North America, guaranteeing you fast service, repairs and parts.
  • Instruction manuals are in North American English, making them easily understood.
  • Accessories include mounting flanges, junction boxes, cables etc.
  • Free 30 day trial period in your plant, pay or return.
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.
