The ETI Model 600 Moisture Meter from HMA INSTRUMENTATION is a registered microwave/nuclear gauging device for measuring the moisture weight percent of bulk material. The measuring portion of the device, comprising a source and detector assembly, is normally mounted across a conveyor belt on an existing belt structure. The detector is connected to an electronics enclosure that processes the detector signal, presenting it as analogue outputs (0-10V or 4-20mA). The ETI Model 600 Moisture Meter from HMA INSTRUMENTATION generates moisture weight percent and weight/density measurements every three seconds, making it useful for on-line process and control applications.
Applying the ETI Model 600 Moisture Meter from HMA INSTRUMENTATION on a load-out conveyor provides a means for monitoring and accounting for the effects of moisture on coal shipments. Using it on a plant bunker feed belt allows for monitoring boiler-feed moisture, which can result in more accurate reporting of plant heat rates. On the output of a prep plant it allows for a closed-loop feedback so as to control dryers. As a process control element, it can reduce moisture variability and ensure specification compliance, thereby boosting profit margins. The ETI Model 600 Moisture Meter from HMA INSTRUMENTATION can be installed in conjunction with the ETI Model 410 Ashmeter for real-time analysis of ash, moisture, and heating value.
