Bauxite Moisture

Importance of Bauxite Moisture

Here at MoistTech, we understand the requirements needed to successfully produce bauxite. We pre–set our bauxite moisture testing calibrations, measurement wavelengths, sensor optical requirements and algorithms 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.

Although the bauxite and excess particles won’t create permanent damage, dust in the production environment may cause build up on the sensor’s window. We recommend installing the air purge system to prevent any problems.

Bauxite is the main component of aluminum and is often used in a variety of manufacturing processes. The increased demand is an even better excuse to observe production more closely. MoistTech’s CCS3000 sensor will monitor the bauxite moisture levels closely and guarantee a more profitable conveyor system, by improving the quality of the products produced and reducing waste.

Measure Moisture in Real Time


Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure t moisture in most applications within tenths of a percent


MoistTech sensors withstand the test of time and are low to zero maintenance, saving time and money


Rely on MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors to never drift or need re-calibration


A moisture measurement system is essential for the production process and in some cases will pay for itself in less than 30 days

Installation & Dryer Control

The MoistTech bauxite moisture testing sensor should be mounted several inches above the conveyor. The space will ensure the moisture in the bauxite creation process is monitored from start to finish. The sensor can adjust both manually or automatically.

Dryer control can be a sensitive area of production.  MoistTech’s moisture sensor provides the user with the ability to monitor the incomming and outgoing moisture levels to properly control the dryer. This can save a lot of time, energy and money by making a simple adjustment.

What is the Solution?

MoistTech sensors provide manufactures exceptionally accurate and precise moisture measurement and control protocols. It is able to accurately measure to within 0.1% on many applications – resulting in improved product quality and significant cost savings.


Locate the point in the production process in which measuring moisture will be the most crucial and beneficial. Identify how you will use the moisture measurement data for improvements and if it will tie into your PLC.

Remember this could involve more than one installation point!


A closed loop process is achieved by incorporating a moisture measurement system into the manufacturing process. Developing a proactive solution to moisture control will avoid costly downfalls. 


MoistTech’s experts will assess your specific application with lab tests, calibrations and accuracy results to ensure our equipment will peform for you. All of our sensors are pre-calibrated prior to being shipped to create a plug-and-play operation for the end-user.
