Hops Moisture Solutions

Efficiently manage and control the drying process

Hops growers are enjoying a robust and growing forecast that parallels customer demand for craft beer. The crop’s narrow harvest and processing time-frame demands that hop farms and co-ops efficiently prepare the cones for market.

With kilns operating at full capacity in this short window, moisture analysis is critical to optimal product outcome, while efficiently managing other energy and human resources.

Sensortech Systems offers two moisture analyzing solutions, which offer compelling benefits:

• Improved moisture accuracy
• Minimized staff intervention
• Continuous moisture value transmits to PLC
• Fixed, real-time sensors
• No maintenance
• Programmable for different varieties
• Non-destructive measurement
• Lowered energy costs
• Reduced waste
• Weight targets met
• Improved profit margins
In-Kiln Real-time Continuous Monitoring

With the ST-3300 RF Moisture Sensing System, hop growers can monitor the critical drying process with accurate and continuous moisture measurement. Spanning 96 inches, the analyzer's RF field penetrates into the drying hops for a non-destructive, real-time measurement throughout the process.

Location Recommendation:
● In Dryer/Oven, inset into width of bed, under the hops

Hops Application Notes
Conveyor-Mounted, Post-Dryer Monitoring
