Dolomite (Talc) Moisture


Dolomite (Talc) moisture affects the chemical reaction of the talc with phosphoric acid (for the purpose of enriching agricultural soil amendment products), according to recent research by A. M. Sviklas and R. Šlinkšienė. To optimize the process of this reaction, the moisture content of the dolomite mixture should be maintained from 4% to 10%. In other industrial applications, controlling the moisture content of dolomite is equally important.


Installation of the IR-3000 is easy. It is delivered pre-calibrated for your specific application. It is insensitive to ambient temperature, product temperature, or light so that it can be installed along the conveyor, in chutes, or in storage bins. The industry’s most advanced software allows the sensor to provide continuous automatic readings or manual instantaneous readings.


Built to outperform the competition in even the most grueling industrial environments, the IR-3000 is suitable for any manufacturing application. Its state-of-the-art components operates despite the presence of dust, inert material, foreign objects, or gaps in the production line. Years of field data confirm that MoistTech’s IR-3000 is unsurpassed for quality and performance in the industry.
