Why measure moisture in minerals?
In the mineral industry, moisture measurement is very important during mineral processing from mining to the end product. With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech has thousands of installations worldwide in mineral moisture applications. We offer both online for the continuous readings of NIR moisture measurement and laboratory NIR moisture sensors for spot tests near lines or in your quality control labs.
Mining companies are constantly adjusting moisture to maintain the quality of their product. Small variations and excess moisture in mixes can result in clumping, affecting quality and consistencies. Too dry of a product can result in excess dust. Measuring moisture prior to crushing can control particle size and also provide dust suppression. During the drying stage, in-process measurements ensure optimization and elimination of over drying, which can lead to product that is out of specification, degradation and an excess of dust.
Mineral moisture control can reduce transportation costs due to shipping excess water. Additionally, moisture control stops products from freezing during shipping and transportation.
