Using Near-Infrared Technology to Control Moisture on Your Production Lines
On a manufacturing line, there are plenty of factors to take into account when trying to produce the best product possible. These range from machinery upkeep, manpower selection, using proper materials, and much more. However, one of the most important things to keep in mind is moisture content. Too much or too little moisture in or around your materials can severely impact the final product. That means that investing in reliable moisture control technology, such as MoistTech’s Near-Infrared (NIR) devices, can be invaluable. Here are some of the benefits of installing moisture control products on your production line.
Increased Plant Efficiency
When the moisture content of your materials is too high or too low, you risk damaging the final product. In the past, the only way to really mitigate this was through trial and error. That process, however, resulted in time lost for product output. With a MoistTech NIR device, you can see accurate moisture level readings in real time, allowing corrections to be made before the final product comes out ruined.
Lower Energy Costs & Less Waste
The trial and error process mentioned in the last point also makes for material waste and higher costs. Every failed or damaged batch meant wasted materials and higher energy bills since the work had to be redone. These are just two more factors to consider when thinking about how much your production line is hurting by not having a reliable NIR moisture control device active on your product line.
Precise Dryer Control
MoistTech’s NIR devices are built with the highest-quality materials and possess industry-leading precision dryer controls. Using a PC or laptop screen, MoistTech NIR products communicate detailed information in real time. This means you know exactly how to adjust your moisture levels at any given time to optimize your production output and mitigate errors.
MoistTech NIR products can be introduced into your production line with little to no concern on your part. They operate at an extremely high capacity, with optical systems far superior to competitors and motors that take hundreds of measurements per second. Dust, temperature, and humidity do not interfere with our devices, and their rugged industrial design means they’re not easily damaged. This means you can spend less time worrying about your moisture levels and reading instruments, and instead spend more time on the actual production.
Overall, moisture management devices can save you time, money, and heartache in your production management. No matter your industry, MoistTech has an NIR device for you. Our devices have helped production lines in industries such as adhesives, chemicals, both human and animal food, forest products, cannabis and hemp, minerals, and more.
