Powder and Bulk Moisture
Monitoring and controlling the moisture level in powder and bulk is critical for creating quality products from dry beverage products to laundry soap powder. Monitoring and control of the process are necessary in every step of the chemical processing, from raw materials to blending to the end product.
Reduce downtime, start-up time, waste and energy costs by monitoring the powder and bulk moisture levels at every stage of the process. When one measurement is out of tolerance, a quick automatic or manual adjustment can be made to keep things moving correctly before costly time is lost, and waste is produced.
For more than 40 years, MoistTech has been measuring the moisture in various manufacturing applications. With the input of our industry partners, we have developed the ultimate NIR moisture sensor for instant and non-contact measurement. The IR-3000 takes continual measures of moisture, temperature, chemical composition, coating thickness, and other important levels, as well, with high accuracy.
Typical moisture accuracy is about ± 0.05%, with coating accuracy varying from 0.1 to 0.01 micron, depending on the coating type. A typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize recording requirements or PLC.
The sensor is preset before shipping and requires no calibration maintenance. Mount it above your production line for easy non-contact measures. It stands above other sensors because it can correctly deal with small gaps in powder or bulk measurements.
