The Hydro-Probe Orbiter is the world's first rotating digital microwave sensor designed specifically to measure moisture and temperature in the mixer. With a choice of mounting options for static, rotating pan and planetary mixers the sensing head slices easily through the mix providing accurate moisture measurement of the material in real time.
Originally supplied to the concrete industry, the Hydro-Probe Orbiter can also be mounted as a static sensor underneath a bin or above a belt conveyor and is therefore easily adaptable for use in other industries such as sand, aggregates, cereal, animal feed and fish meal.
The Hydro-Probe Orbiter comprises of 2 parts - the head unit which houses the electronics and connections and the sensing arm with a hard wearing ceramic head. Both the sensing arm and the head unit can be easily changed eliminating the need to replace the entire sensor. To extend the life of the Hydro-Probe Orbiter, the Orbiter should always be fitted with wear protection sleeves.
