Proactive Avoidance with Moisture Control

Proactive Avoidance with Moisture Control
26 Oct 2023  |
Near-Infrared 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.

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.

Plug and play operation

Insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height & color, an ideal moisture sensor will provide continuous, reliable readings with zero maintenance and a one-time calibration with a non-drift optical design allowing operational personnel to confidently make immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.

Achieving a closed loop process is accomplished by incorporating a moisture measurement system into the existing process. Developing a proactive solution to moisture control will avoid costly downfalls.

Accurately detecting moisture levels frequently throughout the process allows for line adjustments as needed that improve the overall functionality and efficiency of the facility.

Constant monitoring

Allows for a constant, non-contact solution to moisture measurement directly on the production line, allowing for real time adjustments to avoid downtime and waste

Closed loop

Measuring moisture directly on the production line produces instant, accurate data that can be easily communicated to a PLC – creating a closed loop process

Immediate improvements

A moisture control system provides improved product quality, lower waste and energy costs, process optimization, increased plant efficiency, dryer control and reduced downtime
