In nowadays industry drying processes are one of the most energy consuming stages in different fields. Nevertheless these processes are here to stay and they are a crucial part in process engineering.
Meanwhile the recent rise of energy prices made an increase of up to 7 times of the costs for drying compared to last year.
Microwave technology vs. KFT - which of the two is the more efficient technology?
The moisture content in food products has an extreme influence on the quality of the product and its shelf life. Shorter drying times enable a higher throughput and avoid over-drying of the product and, hence wasting energy. To precisely measure the moisture content of a product there are several different technologies available in the market.
MW 3012: The solution for your Weight Control System on the cigarette maker and filter maker.
Do you remember how density of the tobacco rod was measured 25 years ago before TEWS invented the Microwave Density Measuring Head MW 3000?
Most of us don’t, but back in those times, most cigarette makers had a radiation sign (trefoil) on its measuring head because they included a nuclear source for the Beta-Rays to measure the density/weight.
How our instruments can measure different tobacco blends, independent from its characteristics
Measuring density and moisture on your different cigarette blends has never been so easy. With TEWS Microwave moisture and density measuring systems you achieve accurate results even when your blends have many variations-this works online as well as in the lab.
How our Microwave Technology can Measure Moisture in Frozen Pasta
In 2020, a year dominated by Corona, sales of frozen food in supermarkets increased by 7.5%. So, what does frozen lasagne have to do with TEWS? More than you think! With our microwaves you can't heat the food (fortunately). But we measure the pre-cooked pasta before it is frozen to ensure that it always tastes great.
For more than 40 years TEWS Elektronik has been supplying high precision moisture measurement systems to the tobacco industry. The ability to manage moisture in the production process helps to increase control from the incoming bale to the outgoing cigarette and is a considerable contribution to improve “Plant Efficiency”.
Ventilex and TEWS – Two Market Leaders Combine Their Strengths
Ventilex, a world leading company in drying and thermal treatment solutions, has a market share of around two thirds in the premium gelatin market. TEWS, market leader in industrial moisture and density measurement based on microwave technology, will support Ventilex with the development of the automatic control of their dryer based on the readings of the moisture sensor.
Remote Commissioning Free of Charge during Covid-19
Travel restrictions prevent us from visiting our customers and they prevent us from commissioning our equipment at the customer's premises as usual. However, they do not prevent us from looking for ways to put the equipment into operation remotely together with the customer.
Well-functioning and digitilised relationship management helps our customers achieve their goals faster. TEWS has understood. Taking into account the specific requirements of each individual industry division, we offer next-generation client services together with our key account managers.
Read more about how you can save time and energy and how you can implement automatic quality control in the plasterboard production process. The presentation was given by Tim Collath, our global key account manager for the chemical industry, on October 23rd, 2019 at the Global Gypsum Conference in Kuala Lumpur.
Lecture by André Tews at the PTS Corrugated Board Symposium on 03. and 04.04.2019 in Dresden. The lecture deals with a core question of corrugated board production, the correct flatness. The lecture will focus on an important, if not the most important, parameter for achieving perfect flatness: the moisture content of the individual paper layers and their recording and processing in the digital factory of the future.
When it comes down to the perfect cigarette, quality control and moisture measurement always go hand in hand. So it is no surprise that two leaders in these fields have created a symbiosis to find better solutions for customers worldwide.
Based in Hamburg, Tews Elektronik manufactures devices for measurement moisture in leaf and cut tobacco, stems, cigarettes and cigars. The company explained its latest system to TJI, the MW 3012, which can measure 40,000 times per second ...
When fish feed is put into water, it should act in accordance with the feeding behavior of the respective fish. This means that it should either float on the surface or sink to the bottom. These characteristics largely depend on the fish feed’s density, which in turn defines the different types of fish feed:
Accurate to the point - microwave-based moisture measurement increases productivity.
Fast and accurate measurement of the moisture content in food can save time and money. Too high or too low moisture is undesirable. This often leads to loss of quality and makes further processing of the intermediate product more difficult or even impossible. If the moisture content is known, drying times can be optimized. Improved quality and longer shelf life are the result.
100% Control - TEWS Moisture Measurement Systems Improve Your Plant Efficiency.
For more than 25 years TEWS Elektronik supplies high precision moisture measurement systems to the tobacco industry. The company offers a wide range of instruments for the quality control from the incoming bale to the outgoing cigarette.
