How Moisture Sensors Improve Sustainability Initiatives

Moisture measurement tools help achieve your carbon targets

While industry continues to minimize cost and maximize productivity, green initiatives and carbon footprints are top of mind for production lines everywhere. To improve energy consumption in manufacturing, the ROI of moisture measurements should be top of mind too.

By deploying moisture sensing and control, manufacturing can reduce the amount of fuel used for dryers, burners, and other production processes that rely on energy to operate. From raw materials to drying control to QC and shipping, moisture sensors can save energy and reduce emissions throughout.

Moisture sensing and environmental impact

No matter your industry, manufacturing and production facilities have a common need to measure and control moisture on their lines. Without moisture sensing: energy, water, even product is wasted, and that makes meeting carbon compliance targets impossible.

By utilizing advanced moisture sensing tools, like the Finna Sensors OMNIR, manufacturers can calibrate for parameters that assist operators in achieving their product quality targets, reducing their energy waste, and improving their VOC emissions.

How moisture sensors improve carbon footprints

Advanced moisture sensing and control systems utilize real-time moisture data from continuous measurement points across the production line — before, during and/or after.

Depending on product type and its points of moisture measurement, production lines can use their moisture data to reduce energy reliance. By monitoring raw material moisture, active drying times, temperature fluctuations, and other production line processes, operators have the tools to review production, identify issues, and improve energy outcomes with time and quality analysis.

Why moisture sensors are a cost-effective tool for sustainability

If your manufacturing processes consume energy of any kind, you can quickly benefit from the impact of advanced moisture sensor data and control. Here are some of the payback points clients have seen:

The next step: reduce your carbon footprint

Every manufacturing line in every industry is sharing a similar need to reduce their carbon footprint. Many of these productions are finding the tools they need in moisture sensors and control systems.

Easily installed on most production lines, moisture sensors are assisting operators with achieving green initiatives and helping to improve fuel efficiency, reduce waste, and achieve regulation restraints.
