This ready availability of moisture information allows proactive process control actions with the information being used in a number of ways including:
Diverting Excessively moist material away from vulnerable downstream processes
Feedback control to a dryer circuit
Feed forward/back control to spray bars for dust control
Product moisture/dry mass contract compliance
