The tree and its wood have played an important role in human life and have been used by humans since early Paleolithic times. Wood is a highly versatile material and remains the preferred choice when it comes to construction, flooring, furniture, shipbuilding, tools and fuel. The durability of wood is often a function of water/moisture content, and wood product manufacturers are continuously working on improving the quality and durability of their products, relying heavily on the ability to monitor moisture and other key constituents.
The monitoring needed to ensure the quality, durability and consistency of wood products requires reliable and repeatable technology that provides proven results year after year. For over two decades, Process Sensors Corporation (PSC) has provided accurate and reliable Near Infrared (NIR) transmitters to wood products manufacturers, enabling better quality control and cost savings. NIR instrumentation from Process Sensors Corporation produces robust and repeatable measurements of moisture, resins, wax and other parameters with no need for routine maintenance or calibration. Custom-designed enclosures allow PSC transmitters to be installed in exceptionally harsh environments throughout multiple wood processes.
