In-line moisture meter for animal feed to certify quality and production
What is the moisture meter in line for UMIpet?
The in-line moisture meter for animal feed, Umipet, is the Marrari solution for measuring the moisture in line for feed passing on a treadmill or production line in real time. It has a sensor with active capacitive principle, i.e. the measurement is more accurate and faster than by resistance.
Why use the Umipet on my production line?
Why the measurement of the moisture of your material/product is essential to maintain the quality of it. For example: If the feed is still too moist or too dry, there may be problems in the next steps of production in which would generate unnecessary additional costs.
How does the Umipet work?
It works via capacitativity, i.e. it is installed a sensor on the treadmill and while the material is loaded by it, it passes over the sensor and is read the moisture of the product second to second. So having a real moisture measurement.
How is the umipet so precise?
It uses a calibration method for recipes. In short: You use the Tracker (equipment that goes along with the Umipet) that collects samples during the day and compares them with the laboratory.
If you have divergences, you can go to the included Tracker software and update the values to match the lab test, thus ensuring your accuracy.

Animal feed, flours and meal: in the same way as in other processes the knowledge of the moisture content at the exit of the animal feed dryer allows the control of the dryer, guarantees product quality and generates expressive mass gains. The increase in productivity occurs by working closer to the ideal value of moisture, which guarantees product quality (better palatability and absence of fungi and bacteria) and also mass gain, which results in competitive differentials and lower costs.
