Impacts of Consistent Moisture Monitoring

Impacts of Consistent Moisture Monitoring - MoistTech - BulkInside
30 Mar 2023  |
Moisture sensors are utilized for measurements of moisture in all kinds of manufacturing applications which is a critical concern during the production process. MoistTech’s near-infrared (NIR) moisture sensor allows manufacturers the ability to adjust moisture levels on real-time information lowering raw material and fuel costs, higher yields, and more uniform products.

NIR moisture measurement is a non-contact measurement that offers clear advantages over the traditional methods, most important being ease-of-use, elimination of hazardous chemicals, and increased efficiency of product testing. With NIR analysis, all manual steps of collecting, drying and accurately weighing samples are eliminated. 

Continuous monitoring of moisture content provides proactive avoidance of potential issues caused by out of tolerance moisture levels.

How/Why controlling Moisture Matters

When moisture levels fluctuate, it can cause significant changes to the quality of many various types of manufactured products. These inconsistencies mean that your final product will have varying quality depending on when in production they were created. Near-infrared technology is the best solution to accurately measure the moisture levels of multiple applications, offering a solution that meets all quality control factors. Accurately detecting moisture levels frequently throughout the process allows for line adjustments as needed that improve the overall functionality and efficiency of the facility.

Quality and consistency are crucial when it comes to maintaining a manufacturing line with powdered applications.It is important to have a consistent product from start to finish, which means being able to detect moisture content accurately and frequently. A moisture measurement system is designed to provide accurate moisture measurements as often as needed to improve the manufacturing line and product. Inconsistencies can lead to wasted product and downtime in the manufacturing process. Implementing a moisture control sensor instantly reduces waste and energy costs as well as improves the efficiency of the line. Optimizing and fine tuning the production process can allow for a multitude of benefits

Benefits of Moisture Analysis:

  • Minimize costs, increase efficiency
  • Instant real-time feedback with thousands of measurements per second
  • Reduced energy usage and downtime
  • Reduction in fire and explosion risk
  • Plant production efficiency monitoring
  • Total dryer control
  • Blending monitoring for control of moisture & resin
  • Increased productivity allows operators to make critical process adjustments
  • Low cost – instant ROI
  • Non-contact, non-drift optical scan with +/- 0.05% accuracy
