Dry Tonnage Calculation

Dry tonnage reconciliation or metallurgical accounting as it is often referred to, as increasingly being implemented in pit to port mining operations throughout the world.


MoistScan® technology enables calculation of dry tonnage as opposed to wet tonnage where only a traditional belt scale is employed.


Typically MoistScan® units will be installed along with belt weighers at critical measurement points in the value adding chain. This is especially the case where change of ownership of the product occurs or where individual business units within a single integrated operation institute measure productivity
