NIR moisture measurement
In the chemical industry the quality of products raw materials and processes are held to very high standards so when it comes to
quality, precision and speed they must meet the utmost of standards. Process monitoring and control are necessary in all phases of
chemical processing
, from raw materials to blending to the end product. NIR moisture measurement is widely used for raw material testing, quality control and process monitoring due the instant and noncontact measurementsWith the help of industry partners and 30 years of knowledgeMoistTech has thousands of installations worldwide in chemical applications. We offer both online for the continuous readings of NIR moisture measurement and laboratory NIR moisture sensors for spot tests near lines or in your quality control labs. During the blending and mixing, processors are constantly adjusting moisture to maintain the quality of their product. Small variations and excess moisture in mixes can result in clumping affecting quality and consistencies.

During drying and granulation moisture measurements play a crucial role in the production of chemicals. Inprocess measurements ensure optimization and elimination of over drying, which can lead to product that is out of specification and degradation. With continuous readings manufacturers can determine when the process has achieved its target moisture range. Testing moisture content throughout the process also provides chemical manufacturers cost savings in energy & fuel costs, as well as having less product wasteWith continuous NIR online moisture testing, manufacturers can monitor moisture levels which they inturn, can precisely control their dryers to optimize the production process with minimum energy requirements. Realizing that many chemical processing companies use many primary reference measurements, either inhouse
or out sourced
, MoistTechs NIR moisture sensors are easy to setup and use which will provide instant and precise measurements due to no constituent losses in handling. Additionallyinstant measurements provide manufacturers savings in analysis cost, delivering times and shipping costs.
