Having the correct salt moisture level has become a critical component during processing. Salt can easily become either too wet or dry wasting manufacturer’s time and money. With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech has developed the IR-3000 moisture sensor that is ideally suited to measure the salt moisture levels in the manufacturing process.
MoistTech’s IR-3000 salt moisture sensor utilizes the principle of near infrared reflection (NIR). A sample of salt is poured into a stainless steel bowl that is placed inside the salt moisture sensor for measurement. The measurement results are processed in 5 seconds and the sensor is ready for the next salt sample to be measured.
Benefits of Salt Moisture Control
- Improved Product Quality
- Lower Energy Costs
- Reduced Start-up Times
- Less Waste
- 100% Product Inspection
- Less Downtime
MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the production of salt. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.005% moisture. Typical analog range is 0-2% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
