Moisture Sensors for Concrete Batching Control Systems

Moisture Sensors for Concrete Batching Control Systems

Mixing a perfect batch of concrete isn’t rocket science, but it does require some fairly sophisticated technology and attention to detail. A key component of any productive concrete plant is the moisture sensor. FESCO Direct sells two great probe options from ScaleTron, the AquaSense and the AquaControl. Both aggregate moisture meters are well suited to the needs of small to large-sized concrete producers.

AquaControl with AquaMix Moisture Sensor and Control for Concrete Mixers

The AquaControl with AquaMix Moisture Sensor, gives you three different methods of concrete moisture control. This allows you to choose the best, most accurate control method for your plant and product. You will see up to 30% improvement in speed, compared with older resistance-based methods. Installed in the concrete mixer floor or wall, it measures the material as it is mixed. 

Features

  • Insensitive to temperature
  • Water measurement by volume or weight
  • Stainless steel body for long life
  • Two speed water valves for dosing speed and accuracy
  • PLC and touch screen based controller with graphic screen
  • Stand-alone system or use with batching computer
