Real-time high solid measurement for process control

Valmet High Solids Measurement - Valmet HS

Using advanced microwave technology, the Valmet High Solids Measurement (Valmet HS) delivers stable and accurate consistency measurement for a wide range of industrial and municipal applications.

Enhance drying processes in biogas and incineration plants to save energy and side fuels

Optimize chemical dosing and process settings for higher solids to reduce transportation costs

Precisely control consistency in a wide range of demanding industrial applications

Precision dry solids control

Continuously measuring total solids over 30%, the Valmet HS enables precise optimization of total solids. With online measurements available in real-time, you can, for instance, carefully follow and adjust the performance of your dewatering and drying processes.

Using the accurate dry solids measurement from the Valmet HS, control systems can fully optimize a variety of applications to save energy, reduce chemical use and improve sustainability.

Optimize drying and improve incineration

After further processing of the municipal dry cake, such as biogas production, remaining sludge needs to be further dried. Valmet HS helps you fine tune the drying process so that the moisture level is just right. Save energy and reduce fuel consumption by avoiding over drying.

With optimal dewatering, not only do you save on municipal sludge transportation, but incineration plants can be certain of their energy potential by using the Valmet HS at the incineration process inlet. The online, real-time solids measurements from Valmet HS support precision control of the burning process, helping lower side fuel costs and reducing emissions.

Accurate high consistency for industrial applications

The microwave-based measurements of the Valmet HS are reliable and accurate across a very wide range of applications where high consistency flows are essential to the process. Easily optimize moisture in, for example, starch, sugar, gypsum or wood pellet production. Stabilize consistency for better refining at paper mills to achieve higher quality and reduce wear and tear on machinery such as roll presses.

Easy integration and reliable operation

The Valmet HS extracts a continuous sample from the falling cake flow after centrifuges, presses, or dryers to measure the solids content. Reliable screw-based sampling and a built-in calibration routine ensure measurements remain steady and accurate. With full Industrial Internet support, the Valmet HS can be integrated to remote control systems and Valmet's automation services.
