Coated Abrasives Moisture
Whether you need manual or automatic moisture control, you need to find a way to control coated abrasives moisture levels to keep your processes running. MoistTech’s IR 3000 Moisture Sensor can measure moisture levels and solvent based coatings and coat weight thickness throughout the manufacturing process.
The MoistTech IR 3000’s non-drift optical design permits non-contact continuous process monitoring and control so that process variation can be detected and adjusted in real time. Typical moisture accuracy is about ± 0.05%, with coating accuracy varying from 0.1 to 0.01 micron, depending on the coating type. Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
Having the correct moisture level in your coated abrasives during the manufacturing process is incredibly important. If they are off, either too high or too low, the waste of raw materials goes up and productivity is decreased.
The IR 3000 Moisture Sensor puts you into the driver’s seat when it comes to moisture levels. Real-time measurements are made and transmitted to you automatically or manually, whichever you would prefer. This allows for immediate adjustments in moisture levels when it counts most.
By reducing your wasted raw material costs, you can decrease your overall product costs. Reduced drying times can provide you with significant savings in your monthly utilities. Drying and heating of products can account for a large percentage of overhead costs.
Keeping your employees working instead of re-working will help you increase employee production as well. Not to mention, with less downtime, you will find your employee’s morale will increase as well.
For over forty years, we have helped companies around the world increase their productivity and reduce their production costs. We can do the same for you. Contact us today to learn how the IR 3000 Moisture Sensor can become a critical component to your company’s success.
