Real time analysis of moisture in a wide range of process materials provides active control over product quality, with timely information to make decisions that maximise the value of the product and minimise operating and maintenance costs. The TBM200 Series of moisture monitors are the result of Scantech’s many years of experience developing microwave technology. They are easy to install, commission and calibrate, providing accurate results and stable, hassle-free operation.
Typical applications include:
• Analysis of product to control dewatering circuits and dryer settings, thus reducing processing costs and optimising handling problems in transport, chutes and transfer points;
• Monitoring and controlling dust suppression systems;
• Analysis and blending control during reclaim from stockpiles at delivery points, to ensure quality targets are met;
• Monitoring feed moisture into a process, to control chemical dosing.
""The economic benefit gained from use of the Coalscan on-line ash monitors in most cases results from control of mining and plant operations closer to the required specification ash content. A number of independent studies have estimated the benefits of on-line ash analysis to average more than A$500 000 per year per installed gauge.""
