NDC Technologies, a leading global provider of intelligent, connected measurement and control solutions, offers the new PrediktIR II gauge to accurately, reliably measure moisture in process applications involving biomass, clay powder and sinter mix. This near-infrared gauge enables manufacturers to make reliable moisture measurements during the process and independent of changes in ambient conditions such as lighting, temperature or humidity. This allows for tighter process control to optimize product quality and consistency with the highest degree of confidence.
PrediktIR II is designed with a stainless-steel enclosure and can be easily integrated into the process to measure moisture in continuous product flows on a conveyor, gravity-fed product flows, powders in fluid bed dryers, and spray dryer and sinter mix processes, to name a few. Reliable moisture measurement and dryer control enables manufacturers to realize significant energy savings and improve product yield. Other key benefits include the reduction of waste or scrap, enabling faster start-up and product change-over times, and compliance with legislative requirements and safety standards.
