Are You Controlling the Moisture in Your Waste Application?

In waste-to-energy facilities, controlling the ash residue is a critical concern of plant operators. After combustion, the ash residue that is left, is sprayed with water to reduce dust and odors which is then transported to landfills/moonfuls. However, too much or too little moisture can create several problems for waste-to-energy plants. By integrating MoistTech’s IR3000 online NIR Moisture Sensor into the process, processors can monitor and control 100% of the ash. Waste Expo

Managing the ash residue is important step for many reasons at incineration facilities around the world. From minimizing the possibility of ash dust inhalation and ingestion of employees, to preventing ash being absorbed into the environment, as well as, to lowering transportation costs due to weight. With MoistTech’s NIR Moisture sensor operators will be able to instantly and continuously measure ash moisture and control these problems.

Preventing airborne dust and controlling weight of the ash, MoistTech recommends installing a sensor after combustion and moisture spray. From past installations and depending on the matrix of the ash, the optimum moisture range is 15-18% with a target of 15% for control of dust and weight of the ash. The moisture content lowest point is 12-14% before the ash becomes airborne and above 25% moisture the ash turns into mud that contains surface moisture (liquid) making it very heavy and expensive to haul away.
