Is Your Moisture Analysis Test Giving Real Moisture?

Precisely calculating percent moisture in bulk materials is one of the means of confirming that a final product will meet your quality needs. Often moisture content needs to be highly controlled for a product to maintain material integrity. The determination of moisture is a serious component in manufacturing practices and quality declaration. Though choosing the right method from the many moisture measurement techniques out there isn’t a simple matter.

Moisture analysis is commonly used in:
• Agricultural research
• Seed and grain research
• Biomass
• Production mining and many more

Bygone moisture measuring techniques such as loss on drying involve time-consuming steps, such as heating and dry time in a device to conclude the loss of weight. Even newer automated moisture analysis tools still require a few minutes of drying time to resolve the drying curve. All of these techniques require sample collection & preparation, and when completed the result can often be too late for real process control. When using these processes, we take for granted that the results will be the product’s actual moisture, but this is often not the case.
