Bintech has developed the M-Sens 3 for moisture measurement of sand in cement production.
The M-Sens 3 is best suited to moisture ranges of 0–10 per cent, which was showcased by a customer in Germany.
The user takes sand as raw material for cement production either directly from ship delivery or from internal storage facilities.
Past experience had shown that the material has a higher moisture level when delivered by ship and, previously, the material moisture was checked manually in the laboratory. Therefore, the customer was looking for a continuous moisture- monitoring system for the sand transportation.
The M-Sens 3 came to the rescue and was installed directly on the conveyor belt for online moisture measurement. In this way, the moisture content of the sand can be measured continuously, saving time and costs.
