About IMPS-4400 Process RF Analyzer

A non-contact RF moisture profiling system for board manufacturers to improve and optimize production processes.

Technical Specifications


True Moisture Profiling for Paper & Board Products

The Instant Moisture Profiling System (IMPS-4400) is a non-contact RF moisture profiling system for board manufacturers to improve and optimize production processes and meet quality standards, reduce energy costs, increase productivity, and generate revenue. The IMPS-4400 utilizes radio frequency antennas to analyze board moisture characteristics below the surface, which is critical information to ensure consistent quality of finished boards.


How It Works

The IMPS-4400 is mounted directly between rollers in a conveying board process line, with individual sensors mounted in an array spanning the width of the total board line. As a board passes through a conveyor – either heading to or leaving a dryer or kiln – the IMPS-4400 transmits RF signals from the array of sensors, which capture up to 30 moisture readings per second.

Measurement information is displayed in proprietary software and stored in an X-Y matrix based on the amount of sensing points in a configuration. The graphs, tables, and trend charts in the software illustrate the moisture profile view from different perspectives, providing true moisture measurement in real-time.
