Sulfur Moisture

Why Measure Moisture?

Sulfur moisture is a leading indicator of sulfur quality because the moisture in bulk sulfur contributes to the formation of dilute acid (sulphuric or sulfurous). The presence of even this very dilute acid will corrode the carbon steel of storage tanks and piping or the concrete in other construction.

The highest quality bulk sulfur has moisture levels below 0.5%–higher than that necessitates pre-treatment for many industrial applications. The effective measurement and subsequent management of the moisture content of sulfur is imperative for the production of the highest quality bulk sulfur.

Sulfur is found in various industries, serving as a key ingredient in the production of car batteries, fertilizer, oil refining, water processing, and mineral extraction. Additionally, sulfur-based chemicals play a vital role in rubber vulcanization, paper bleaching, and the manufacturing of essential products like cement, detergents, and pesticides. It is worth mentioning that sulfur also contributes to the creation of gunpowder.

Proper Installation

MoistTech’s IR-3000 should be installed at belt conveyors, along screw and drag conveyors, in down chutes, in storage bins, or fluid-bed dryers. Install the instrument with or without the optional base and stand to provide, instantaneously, thousands of measurements per second under online operating conditions.

The IR-3000 includes self-powered, isolated 3 x analog outputs at 4-20mA. A laptop, touch-screen tablet, Ethernet, or plant network can be used to communicate with the sensor head(s). The IR-3000 is delivered pre-calibrated, making installation extremely easy. 

The IR-3000 performs in the harshest industrial environment. Dust, foreign objects, inert materials, ambient and product temperature, and other environmental factors do not affect the reliability and accuracy of this instrument. It can be installed and relied upon for continued performance in nearly any industrial environment. The IR-3000’s unsurpassed quality is backed by MoistTech’s world-class technical support.
