Moisture measuring of Iron ore

Iron ore, coal, quartz sand and other components are mixed and sintered. In the next step this mixture is melted in a blast furnace. The ACO sensors determines the residual moisture of these products in real-time before they get mixed. The components get abstracted from the silo by a conveyor belt (or a belt scale). The height limitation at the outlet keeps the product at a steady height. The conveyor belt pushes the iron ore, etc.  equally among the slide where the moisture sensor has been integrated. That makes it possible to get a precise determination of the water content.

Moisture sensors determining the water content of iron ore directly in the production process. The moisture measurement is realized via over-belt construction mounted into a sledge.
