Powder Coatings Moisture


The final quality of powder coatings is not completely dictated by coating thickness; several factors affect product quality. Powder coatings moisture, as just one example, must be controlled to ensure not only product quality, but also production efficiency.

Improve Production Efficiency by Controlling Powder Coatings Moisture

By controlling powder coatings moisture, manufacturers can eliminate time-consuming and costly inefficiencies during production. Controlling powder coatings moisture:

  • Increases overall productivity
  • Improves final product quality
  • Minimizes waste
  • Lowers energy requirements
  • Reduces environmental harms from production
  • Optimizes production processes
  • Saves money

What Are the Advantages of the IR-3000?

In addition to the thousands of hours and gigabytes of data and information behind the development of the IR-3000, the IR-3000 has several advantages over its competition:

  • Provides non-contact, instant, continuous moisture measurements in real time
  • Captures thousands of moisture measurements per second, again, in real time
  • Is insensitive to material variations (e.g., particle size, material height, or color)
  • Is insensitive to production environment effects (e.g., small gaps, inert material, foreign objects, and the belt or screw conveyors themselves are removed from the measurement calculation with IR-3000’s product loss software capability)
  • Requires just a one-time calibration
  • Is maintenance free
  • Operates drift free based on its optical design
