Iron Ore Moisture

Essential Implementation

Maintaining the right moisture content throughout iron ore production is critical. From filtering slurry to rolling ore concentrate—moisture levels must be constantly tested and regulated to ensure the best quality end product is achieved.

For years, instruments capable of the level of accuracy needed in iron ore production did not exist. This forced the mining industry to resort to using less reliable methods. But with the advancement of technology, moisture testing is reaching higher levels of accuracy and efficiency. Finding an instrument capable of taking precise measurements of iron ore may be difficult, but it is no longer impossible.

Using the CCS3000, you’ll cut production costs while increasing the quality of your end product. The CCS3000 is energy efficient and low maintenance. It saves you time and money by reducing start-up and downtime, meaning you’ll produce more quality iron ore.

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


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

Dryer Control

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.

Diamond Standard Equipment

MoistTech has studied moisture and the effects in a wide range of manufacturing processes. We know moisture better than anyone else. And with the goal of making our instruments the best in performance, we’re constantly taking advice from our industry partners to learn how we can improve.

The CCS3000 takes instant, non-contact measurements of moisture in % dry and % wet, allowing you to manually or automatically regulate iron ore moisture content at any point in the line. And its capabilities aren’t just limited to moisture: the CCS3000 accurately tests temperature and other levels vital to iron ore 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.
