The Microlance

  • No sampling
  • No balances
  • No ovens

The Microlance allows the user to rapidly and accurately measure the moisture content of hundreds of tons of material.

The Microlance’s robust and accurate “warhead” sensor can penetrate into large loads, which is particularly important as water usually settles in the most inaccessible lower parts of the bulk. The reading is made instantaneously, allowing large quantities of material to be rapidly tested.
