Citrus Pellets Moisture

Why Measure Moisture?

Citrus pellets can easily become either too wet or dry wasting manufacturer’s time and money as well as impacting the quality of the finished product. With the help of industry partners and over 40 years of knowledge and experience, MoistTech has developed the IR 3000 Moisture Sensor that is ideally suited to measure the moisture levels in the pelletizing process.

By mounting the sensor several inches above the conveyor, at an angle to stop reflected light, after the mixer and extruder will allow the user to continuously monitor the process and can control the moisture content either manually or automatically in the process. The unique feature of the IR 3000 is that can monitor the process even with small gaps in product flow without impacting the accuracy.

Control Moisture Levels Properly

PERFORMANCE

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

STABILITY

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

RELIABILITY

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

COST OF OWNERSHIP

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

What is the Solution?

MoistTech is very experienced with the moisture sensing requirements in pellets applications. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.01% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements. For addition information or to discuss your application, please contact our headquarters.

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.

Understand the Process

Using the IR-3000 drastically cuts production costs. It is energy efficient, low maintenance, and decreases startup and down times. Over dried product causes waste; so does product that is too moist. With the IR-3000, these problems will no longer be an issue.

Using the IR-3000, you’ll save money throughout the entire production process, while making the best quality product at the same time. With MoistTech, you don’t need to compromise.
