In the chemical industry, the quality of products, raw materials and processes are held to very high standards so when it comes to quality, precision and speed they must meet the utmost of standards.
Process monitoring and control are necessary in all phases of chemical processing, from raw materials to blending to the end product. NIR moisture measurement is widely used for raw material testing, quality control and process monitoring due the instant and non-contact measurements.
With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech has thousands of installations worldwide in chemical 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.
During the blending and mixing, processors 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. During drying and granulation, moisture measurements play a crucial role in the production of chemicals. In-process measurements ensure optimization and elimination of over drying, which can lead to product that is out of specification and degradation.
