Proper Moisture Measurement
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.
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.
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.
Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure moisture within tenths of a percent of most applications
MoistTech sensors withstand the test of time and are low to zero maintenance
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
Efficiency is a top of the line priority for manufacturers and the dryer can drain a lot of that. Measuring the moisture before and after the dryer allows the user to optimize the dryer settings to save time and money. A proper moisture control system will pay for itself with the energy savings from the dryer in less than 30 days. Efficiently controlling the dryer within the facility can drastically change the productivity levels.
What is the 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.
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!
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.
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
Moisture content in coal processing is an essential factor to monitor as the lack or excess of moisture can impact the production and quality of the final product. Without the proper handling and production processes, the quality of coal is depleted, potentially causing increased pollution. Coal has a wide moisture content range, which affects its value as fuel and determines how environmentally friendly it is to use, the production process is directly related to its quality.
