If you’re in an industry that involves the measurement of moisture content in materials, you may have heard of the Humy-300 Moisture Meter by Mutec. As moisture in solids can heavily influence product quality, early detection is essential for economic efficiency of production. The Humy-300 is designed to provide accurate and reliable moisture measurements in real-time, making it an invaluable tool for a variety of applications. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the key features and benefits of the Humy-300, as well as the industries and materials that can benefit from its use.
What is the Humy-300 inline moisture meter?
The Humy-300 is an online measuring system for process monitoring, guaranteeing an early and accurate detection of moisture in solids and emulsions. Unlike non-contact moisture measurement, the Humy-300’s measuring technology can detect moisture beneath the surface of the product. The Humy-300 is successfully used for moisture measurement in many processes, including for granules, pellets, chips, powders, dusts and much more. Conveyor belts, screw conveyors, silos, hoppers etc., are particularly suitable installation locations.
Key features and benefits of the Humy-300
- Accurate and reliable measurements: The Humy-300 provides highly accurate and reliable measurements of moisture content thanks to its sturdy probe, with a measurement accuracy of up to 0.1%.
- No samples necessary for the laboratory
- Real-time monitoring: The Humy-300 provides real-time monitoring of moisture levels, allowing for quick adjustments to be made to production processes in response to changes in moisture content. This can help to improve efficiency, reduce waste, and ensure consistent product quality.
- Easy to use: The Humy-300 is designed to be easy to use, with a user-friendly interface and simple installation process. It can be configured to provide alerts or alarms when moisture levels exceed a certain threshold, making it easy to identify and address issues before they become a problem.
- Cost saving: Information gained from past applications has shown that every additional 1% of moisture in a product can increase power costs by 10% during the drying process. Installation of the Humy-300 Moisture Meter can recoup costs in a matter of days or weeks, depending on production size.
Industries and materials that can benefit from the Humy-300
The Humy-300 has a wide range of industrial uses and for a variety of materials, including:
- Food and beverage: The Humy-300 is used in the food and beverage industry to measure the moisture content of ingredients, such as flour, sugar, and grains. Accurate moisture measurements can help to ensure consistent product quality and prevent spoilage.
- Pharmaceuticals: In the pharmaceutical industry, the Humy-300 can be used to measure the moisture content of powders and granules used in drug manufacturing. Accurate moisture measurements can help to ensure consistent dosages and prevent issues such as caking or clumping.
- Chemicals: The Humy-300 can be used in the chemical industry to measure the moisture content of powders and granules used in the production of various chemicals. Accurate moisture measurements can help to ensure consistent product quality and prevent issues such as agglomeration.
- Building materials: The Humy-300 can be used in the production of building materials, such as concrete and gypsum, to measure moisture content and ensure consistent product quality.
The Humy-300 inline moisture meter is a powerful analysing tool for accurately measuring moisture content in a variety of materials. Its accuracy, reliability, real-time monitoring, and easy-to-use interface make it an invaluable asset in industries where moisture content is critical to product quality and consistency. The Humy-300 is a versatile tool that can help to improve efficiency and costs, reduce waste, and ensure consistent product quality.
Prefer a programming display with the instrument?
The Humy-3000 Moisture Meter is essentially the same instrument as the Humy-300, with the added benefit of a programming display on the instrument itself.
