Maintaining the necessary correct fly ash moisture levels has become a critical component during processing.

With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, we have developed the IR-3000 fly ash moisture sensor that is ideally suited to measure the fly ash moisture levels in the fly ash manufacturing process.

The MoistTech sensor will monitor the fly ash process in both wet and dry applications to reduce dust and to provide dryer control.

Installation

Installing the IR-3000 fly ash moisture sensor directly over the material being conveyed allows any manufacturer can continuously monitor the process. In addition, MoistTech’s state-of-the-art sensor can control the fly ash moisture content instantly, either manually or automatically.

Environment

Dust from the product is not normally a problem. However, in extreme dusty environments, we recommend the installation of an Air Purge System to prevent the accumulation of material on the sensor’s window.

Benefits of Fly Ash Moisture Detection

  • Improved Product Quality
  • Lower Energy Costs
  • Reduced Start-up Times
  • Less Waste
  • 100% Product Inspection
  • Less Down time

The MoistTech staff is very experienced with the requirements in the production of fly ash. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture and up to as much as 40%, subject to application. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
