The Importance of Moisture Measurement

Supplier: Ultra-Dynamics

Moisture content is an important process parameter for the majority of industries, with many and varied applications from contract compliance though drier control to the diversion of out of specification material away from vulnerable downstream processes.

Traditionally this has been carried out using the conventional laboratory analysis of a manual sample. Not only is this an expensive and time consuming process but the time taken to provide the result means that the information is usually only of historical value due to process conditions having changed during the time taken between taking the sample and reporting the result, hence the reported result is usually no longer valid for current process conditions.

On-line moisture measurement directly on conveyor belts or in bins is the solution to many moisture process control problems and the ultraMOIST Microwave Moisture Monitor now offers this solution at a low cost together with simple installation and set up.
