Brick MoistureKeeping the elements ideal during the production of brick mixing is very important and moisture levels play an integral role in the process.

The team at MoistTech has 40 years of knowledge and experience and they have developed the IR–3000 moisture sensor, which can measure the brick mixture moisture levels in the production process. A manufacturer can set the sensor to monitor the production manually or automatically.

Brick Mixture Moisture Sensor Installation

The MoistTech brick mixture moisture sensor should be mounted slightly above the conveyor to ensure each step in the creation process is successful.

Environment

Dust from the brick mixtures does not typically create a problem; however, in dusty environments we recommend installing the air purge system. The air purge system prevents buildup on the sensor window.

Brick Mixture Moisture Testing Benefits

  • Product Quality Improvement
  • Lessened Energy Costs
  • Shorter Start-up Times
  • Less Waste
  • 100% Product Inspection
  • Reduced Amount of Downtime

Here at MoistTech, we know the requirements needed to successfully produce brick mixtures. We pre–set our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements at the factory. Accuracy is typically about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 5–15% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
