The Sled was developed in the mid-1990's
for sensing moisture of seed cotton entering the gin on a
conveyor belt. Today, the Sled II (left) works faster, is
more rugged, and requires less space (only 24") to install.
The Sled II is a perfect fit for gins that want fast and
reliable moisture sensing, but do not have a Samuel Jackson Hot
Box. For gins that do have a Hot Box, mounting the incoming
moisture sensor on the Hot Box cotton inlet door is the way
to go. There is no additional conveyor space required making
moisture sensing possible even in the tightest of spaces.
Each of these sensors use resistance technology which is the
fastest available for sensing wet cotton and setting the
drying temperature accordingly. Fast response gives the gin
operator the margin of comfort needed to operate at lower
temperatures. When used with one of the Moisture Mirror
products, these sensors saves fuel, staple and
