Phosphate Moisture

The Best of the Best

Processing phosphate into a usable form requires the measurement and control of the moisture content. Phosphate is an abundantly popularly mined element, is primarily used for agricultural purposes. Mined phosphate requires processing in order to separate its elements. The washing process receives the phosphate, screens it, then discharges a phosphate product and a slurry of liberated clay, sand, and phosphate particles. Phosphate moisture can play a large role in the production process and potentially cause issues if not properly monitored.

MoistTech’s 3000 Moisture Sensor allows you an instant, non-contact, continuous moisture measurement of the phosphate manufacturing process. Critical moisture control allows for

  • Product Quality
  • Increased Production Capabilities
  • Process Efficiency
  • Lower Operating Costs
  • Maximum Operating Management

closed loop

Create a closed-loop process by tying a moisture sensor into your PLC. Full control over the line!

no recalibrations

We’ve mastered the art of moisture sensors – your unit will never need to be recalibrated for the same product twice!

Trusted Experience

MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the processing of phosphate. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms, and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture. The typical analog range is 0-10% moisture and up to as much as 90%, subject to application. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.

Installation Process

By installing the sensor at either the entrance or the exit of the washer and or dryer, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process and can control the moisture content either manually or automatically instantly. Dust from the product is not normally a problem however in extreme dusty environments we recommend the installation of an air purge system to prevent the accumulation of material on the sensor’s window.
