emco AP 500-M6 solution Moisture Meter for Recycled Paper

Moisture determination technology for waste paper with automatic data transfer

The emco AP 500-M6 solution is a web-based measurement technology for mobile paper moisture determination of recovered paper bales. A measurement job is opened via barcode reader or a waste paper bale is selected for measurement by RFID reader. The moisture meter determines the absolute humidity in waste paper by simple pressing. This moisture content allows a water-precise billing of a waste paper delivery and improves the economy of the recovered paper preparation. At the same time a complaint of too wet bales prevents not only costs but also unpleasant consequences such as rot or heat.

The measured values ​​are provided with user-identifier, device number, date, time as well as location (GPS) and are transmitted wireless and encrypted to a database. The database evaluation checks reliability and plausibility of the data. Several locations could be merged into one database. Administrators can manage users, devices and locations. With this new system a secure, manipulation-free and transparent recovered paper management system is possible for all parties. The database is prepared to receive more information about the job or bales, such as the weight.

Features

  • Automated moisture determination technology
  • Lightweight, robust and mobile: attaching – reading – data transfer – management
  • Quick, non-destructive determination of the absolute humidity of waste paper up to depth of 500 mm
  • Pre-programmed calibrated for different materials and bale densities
  • Digital displaying in “%” water content (weight percentage)
  • Temperature measuring value for each moisture measuring value
  • Temperature compensation of the moisture value
  • Automatic detection of the location (GPS)
  • Manipulation-free documentation of operator name, serial number, date, time and location for each measurement in a database:
  • Barcode scanner automates job entry and identification
  • RFID reader automates bale numbering and identification
  • Data pre-processing and labelling of faulty measurements
  • Encrypted data transmission
  • Central management of locations, operators and devices
  • No manipulation or input errors possible
  • Complete documentation ensures traceability
  • Transparency by objective information of all involved parties

Applications

  • Waste paper management system for jobs (barcode) and bales (RFID) for one or more locations
  • Incoming goods inspection
  • Quality control
  • Detection of moisture accumulations in stacks and waste paper bales
  • Use in bales tracing systems based on RFID
