Moisture measurement of coke and iron ore/concentrate on conveyor belts

An online moisture measurement on a conveyer belt provides real-time information on the moisture content before the material enters the blast furnace.

Customer benefits

  • Improved thermal control for blast furnace operation
  • Online, real-time process information
  • High accuracy with very good reproducibility
  • The measurement can be installed on the conveyer belt


  • A neutron source emits neutrons, which will be converted to slow neutrons, when they hit hydrogen atoms. The amount of backscattered slow neutrons is proportional to the coke moisture.
  • Non-contact measurement and no disturbance in the flow
  • Highly reliable, long-term solution
  • Maintenance-free operation
  • Large measuring volume provides representative measurement
