Description: Learn why this technology works wonders today compared to when the basic principle was introduced 20 years ago. If you are over-drying your material, especially nylons, you are destroying important physical properties and you are producing definitely spending too much for energy. If you are under-drying, there is a good chance that you are producing a high level of rejects. Simply using dew point, time and temperature does not tell you the moisture level of your pellets. Dew point only indicates the dryness of the process air – not the dryness of your material. Now, you can see in-line, real-time moisture content in % or parts/million and automatically correct the moisture content or divert material that does not meet your moisture specifications. Primary Topics (what the registrant will learn): • Traditional drying method – Dew Point, Time and Temperature. • How under-drying and over-drying affects properties…and profits. • Typical applications where moisture analysis is necessary. • Standard methods of determining pellet moisture content. • How moisture sensor technology has improved. • New, in-line, real-time moisture analysis.
