The ultraMOIST on-line moisture measurement system now allows the accurate control of process moisture in realtime, hence allowing proactive process control actions.
The information can be used in a number of ways including:
- automatic water addition using flow control valves
- diverter gates to direct wet material away from vulnerable downstream processes
- feedback control to a dryer circuit
- feedforward control to a dryer circuit
- feed forward/back control to spray bars for dust control
- product nett weight monitoring for quality control purposes
- product moisture/dry mass contract compliance
- etc., etc.
The microwave moisture technique is suited to a wide range of materials including; coal, hops, iron ore, wood flake, bauxite, sugar, bagasse, sand, gold ore, copper ore, foods, chemicals, etc.
