The first non-radioactive moisture and fiber weight sensor
TecoSens is the first non-radioactive sensor for simultaneous online measurement of moisture content and fiber weight. It was developed specifically for tissue manufacturers.
TecoSens does not require a radiometric basis weight sensor; instead, it is based on the proven infrared moisture sensor. It measures the absorption of infrared light at four characteristic wavelengths and has baseline correction that minimizes any influence on the measurement caused by environmental effects or the color of the paper.
In combination with the optimized optics and sophisticated algorithms, the sensor delivers an unmatched signal-to-noise ratio and outstanding sensitivity.
TecoSens is used in combination with the TecoScan quality measurement system for measuring the fiber weight and moisture content of tissue paper.
