Moisture levels in salt during processing are critical as the material can quickly have too little or too much, instantly effecting the outcome. MoistTech has utilized Near-Infrared technology for over 40 years to accurately measure and maintain moisture content in salt.
MoistTech’s IR-3000 salt moisture sensor utilizes the principle of near infrared reflection (NIR) to provide the most accurate and repeatable results. Connected directly to your PLC, the moisture measurements can be instantly displayed to allow for adjustments anywhere in the process to elminate waste.
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.
