When glass is taken to a recycling facility, it’s crushed into a ready-to-melt form called cullet. Glass cullet has endless uses: insulation, ceramics, water filtration media, abrasive, aggregate, and more.
Turning old glass into new things is environmentally responsible, but it takes careful processing to get it right. Maintaining the correct moisture content and temperatures can be the difference between a quality product and product waste. But to accurately test and regulate these levels, you need the best product testing instruments.
For 40 years, MoistTech has been studying moisture and its role in a wide range of manufacturing processes. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture testing technology by listening to what our industry partners have to say. We’ve put their feedback, along with our years of experience and knowledge, into one highly accurate moisture sensor: the MoistTech IR-3000.
The IR-3000 measures moisture in % dry and % wet, allowing you to regulate moisture content either automatically or manually.
When processing glass cullet, moisture is important. But other levels must be measured, too, to achieve the highest quality end product. That’s why the IR-3000 measures much more than just moisture: temperature, water-based coatings, chemical composition – all of these and more are tested using our instant, non-contact method.
Benefits of Glass Cullet Moisture Testing
The IR-3000 accurately tests the moisture content of glass cullet and cullet products. And with accurate moisture testing and regulation, you’ll be able to create a top quality end product. Not only will you achieve better results, but your product costs will decrease as well. The IR-3000 is energy efficient and low maintenance; it reduces start-up and down times. You won’t find a better glass cullet moisture analyzer.
