The chemical and pharmaceutical industries are among those that place particularly high demands on measurement technology. In order to be able to guarantee the plasticity of synthetic materials, for example, the moisture in plastic powder is continuously monitored online. This requires special measurement devices with high sensitivity and accuracy. In addition, moisture measurement also plays an important role in the production of fertilizer pellets. The quality and the shelf life of the materials must be ensured in particular.
Alongside moisture measurement, precise dosage and amount measurement for raw materials and end products also constitutes a significant task in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. With the MF3000 flow measurement system, the actual values are continuously recorded in the process and compared with the predefined nominal values. This leads to increases in efficiency as well as cost savings, e.g. in the production process for plastic granulate or in the granulation of fertiliser pellets.
