Cement Moisture

Measuring Moisture Builds Profits

Cement manufacturing can include any number of raw materials. Limestone, sand, shale, clay, iron ore—any combination of these may be what you are using to create your signature mix. You may choose to use the wet or dry method, but either way—moisture is key. Without regulating the moisture and temperature levels throughout the production process, the end product will be low quality, or even unusable. Maintaining the proper levels guarantees the right chemical reactions occur and the right consistency is achieved.

To produce quality product and make a sizable profit, an accurate moisture testing system is key. But knowing which one to choose isn’t easy.

Saving money by cutting costs—without compromising on product quality—is ideal for a profitable business. The IR-3000 is energy efficient, low maintenance, and reduces start-up and down times.

You won’t have to worry about product waste due to incorrect moisture levels. Accurate measurements using the IR-3000 during cement production ensure the best quality end results.

MoistTech’s Solution

When selecting a cement moisture sensor, you want to have the latest technology with the best capabilities. MoistTech has researched moisture and its application in numerous manufacturing processes for over 40 years. We’ve taken our decades of experience and knowledge, along with feedback from our industry partners, to develop a superior moisture sensor: the IR-3000.

The IR-3000 takes instant, non-contact measurements of moisture in % dry and % wet measurements, and regulates cement moisture content either automatically or manually to suit your needs. It’s also capable of measuring temperature and other important levels. The IR-3000 is your best performing option when it comes to cement moisture analyzers.

Assess

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!

Develop

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. 

Support

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.
