Coal Moisture


Coal has a wide moisture content range, which affects its value as fuel and determines how environmentally friendly it is to use. Without the proper handling and production processes, the quality of coal is depleted, potentially causing increased pollution.

However, taking precise measurements of moisture gives coal producers the ability to regulate moisture content, thereby creating a cleaner, higher quality coal. To do this, accurate moisture testing instruments are necessary.

MoistTech’s Solution 

For over 40 years, MoistTech has studied moisture and its applications in a wide range of production processes. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture technology. That’s why we’ve combined our years of experience and knowledge with feedback from our industry partners to create the CCS-3000 —a moisture sensor with only the best capabilities and features.

The CCS3000 takes accurate measurements of moisture (in % dry and % wet) allowing you to regulate moisture levels either automatically or manually. It also takes measurements of temperature, and other levels vital to coal production.

Benefits of Coal Moisture Analysis

Using the CCS3000, you’ll be able to cut production costs while boosting product quality. The CCS3000 is low maintenance and energy efficient. It reduces start-up and downtime, and eliminates waste due to incorrect moisture content. For cleaner, more efficient fuel, the CCS3000 is your best option in coal moisture analyzers.

Moisture Content in Bio Coal 

Biomass Briquette OR Bio Coal is made from agricultural, wooden and forestry wastes by high compression process without adding any chemical, glue or binder. It is thus ‘binder-less’ technology product resulting in 100% natural eco-friendly, pollution-free solid fuel. Biomass briquettes are a renewable source of energy and avoid adding fossil carbon to the atmosphere. It can provide a similar amount of energy as low-grade fossil coal and 30% – 80% more energy than wood pellets

A popular biomass briquette takes a waste produce such as sawdust, groundnut shells, cotton stalk, castor seed shells etc.; compresses it and then extrudes it to make a reconstituted log that can replace firewood and coal. A very low moisture and ash content around 8% makes briquette preferable solid fuel. Briquettes give much higher boiler efficiency because of low moisture and higher density; since bio-coal has high density, it saves transport costs and space in storage.
