Maintaining the right moisture content throughout iron ore production is critical. From filtering slurry to rolling ore concentrate—moisture levels must be constantly tested and regulated to ensure the best quality end product is achieved.

For years, instruments capable of the level of accuracy needed in iron ore production did not exist. This forced the mining industry to resort to using less reliable methods. But with the advancement of technology, moisture testing is reaching higher levels of accuracy and efficiency. Finding an instrument capable of taking precise measurements of iron ore may be difficult, but it is no longer impossible.

MoistTech’s Solution

For over 40 years, MoistTech has studied moisture and its effects in a wide range of manufacturing processes. We know moisture better than anyone else. And with the goal of making our instruments the best in performance, we’re constantly taking advice from our industry partners to learn how we can improve.

Now we’ve taken their feedback— combined with our decades of experience and knowledge—to create one highly accurate moisture sensor: the MoistTech IR-3000.

The IR-3000 takes instant, non-contact measurements of moisture in % dry and % wet, allowing you to manually or automatically regulate iron ore moisture content at any point in the line. And its capabilities aren’t just limited to moisture: the IR-3000 accurately tests temperature and other levels vital to iron ore production.

Benefits of Iron Ore Detection

Using the IR-3000, you’ll cut production costs while increasing the quality of your end product. The IR-3000 is energy efficient and low maintenance. It saves you time and money by reducing start-up and downtime, meaning you’ll produce more quality iron ore.
