Choosing a method for measuring your material's moisture content
Accurately measuring moisture in dry bulk materials is one of the keys to ensuring that a final product will meet your quality requirements. However, choosing the right method from the range of moisture-measurement techniques out there isn't a simple matter. This article will help you make sense of your options by explaining how moisture-measurement methods are applied, how they work, and how to choose one for your application.
To achieve a high-quality final product with good consistency, correct weight, and long shelf life, you need to analyze the moisture content of the dry ingredients that feed into your process. This can be a challenge because moisture content changes with your ingredients' hygroscopic tendencies. One way to overcome this problem is to use equipment that accurately measures the moisture content of material in your process.
