Summary

On-line moisture measurement of ceramics, refractories, and glass batch mix can greatly improve product quality while reducing scrap and energy costs. Near-infrared moisture analyzers now provide a quick and accurate method for on-line process moisture measurement and control, as well as instantaneous laboratory moisture measurement.
