The bulk & mineral Industry is on top of the list wich Weighing & Inspection Benelux is active. We are improving the processes at our customers on daily basis and knowing the moisture content is important from begin to end product..
Companies are constantly adjusting moisture to maintain the quality of their product. Small variations in moisture and excess moisture in mixes can result clumping. This is affecting quality and consistencies. A product that is too dry can result in excess dust. Measuring moisture prior to crushing can control particle size and also provide dust suppression. When you measure during the drying stage, the in-process measurements ensure optimization and elimination of over drying, which can lead to product that is out of specification, degradation and an excess of dust.
Moisture control can reduce transportation costs due to shipping excess water. Additionally, moisture control stops products from freezing during shipping and transportation.
Testing moisture content throughout the process also provides every manufacturers cost savings in energy and fuel costs, as well as having less product waste. With our continuous NIR online moisture sensor can manufacturers monitor moisture levels of the incoming product, can precisely control their dryers to optimize the production process with minimum energy requirements.
