Analyzer Measures Moisture in Mined Materials
Thermo Fisher Scientific has released its
third-generation Thermo Scientific low
frequency microwave (LFM3) moisture
analyzer. The analyzer, according to the
company, provides improved, real-time
moisture measurements and can be easily integrated and installed in a variety of
mining applications. The LFM3 allows for the precise addition of water to control
dust in operations where adding too
much water can cause ore to become
sticky and clog chutes or screens. It also
integrates across Thermo Scientific
material handling solutions that incorporate sampling, weigh feeders and elemental analysis through the Thermo
Scientific CB Omni cross-belt analyzer.
Easily replaceable electronic modules
make the LFM3 easy to maintain and its
circuitry is designed to perform in areas
with high microwave attenuation.
Additionally, the LFM3 emits very low
microwave power, making it EMC compliant in all countries.
