Trucks drive to and from Jiffy. Peat, originating from the Baltic states, Sweden and Germany, are supplied daily. In addition, many trucks leave every day for national and international destinations with the end product. Jiffy processes and mixes raw materials into high-quality substrates for growers. “Logistics makes up the lion’s share of our cost price, so we are constantly looking for improvements. The big bale press installation is therefore a real progress, ”says Roelof Buisman, substrate manager.

INADCO Moisture Measurement, a privately owned company from the Netherlands, will go in a series of tests with their Moisture sensor for woody biomass in Mid-Sweden. INADCO is a technology supplier who developed a unique and revolutionary new high-frequency measurement system especially designed to measure the moisture content in rough inhomogeneous products like biomass (e.g., biofuels, forest residues). Their technology makes it possible to have an instant moisture content value, as opposite to the use of the drying method, which will only give a moisturemeasuring result after 24 hours.


Universal, mobile on-line moisture measurement

Language: Dutch

INADCO-WEMO introduces a mobile, on-line moisture meter. With the measurement setup, various bulk products, such as grains, animal feed and meal, can be tested for moisture percentages at the companies themselves, in order to demonstrate the possibilities for cost savings and quality control.


INADCO regulates the mixing ratio for mushroom casing soil

Language: Dutch

How do you regulate two strongly fluctuating material flows of peat and foam soil into a homogeneous casing soil for growing mushrooms? INADCO will provide an appropriate answer to this question from casing soil supplier Topterra. A few belt conveyors were set up weighing and thanks to INADCO technology, it was possible to reliably measure and adjust fluctuating material flows.
