This company’s Smart Moisture Monitor (photo) is a non-contact electronic-scanning device that helps to prevent excessive water content in recycling processes to increase metals recovery. The Moisture Monitor measures the water content of material passing through its inspection field. When installed on a conveyor, it reports the moisture content of the material on the belt as a percentage that can be read locally or remotely via a Web portal. The device enables users to optimize the amount of water injected into the mill to prevent fires and control airborne dust generation. — Eriez Manufacturing Co., Erie, Pa.
