IR Moisture Analyzer – Operating Principle

Here we see an NIR-6000 industrial grade moisture analyzer mounted on a base and stand next to an OI-6000 HMI Operator Interface to demonstrate a real time moisture measurement. The product being measured is clay but the product could just as easily be represented by foundry sand, potato chips, wood chips, potash or any other material. What we are interested in is the moisture in the product. Moisture is immediately detected by the analyzer when water is added to the product.
