Fast moisture measurement in starch and starch derivatives
Within many industries and in various production processes, moisture analysis is used for process control. For example, saving energy in a drying process is a common reason for measuring moisture in a production process. When it comes to measuring moisture in starch, an important reason is to maintain the volume by minimal drying. By placing high-quality in-line analyzers in the process lines, the operator can adjust the process immediately. This saves waste and energy and guarantees constant product quality.
Determining the percentage of moisture in the (end) product is also an important parameter for quality control at-line or in a laboratory.
