MoistScan® MA-600HBF Horizontal Belt Filter Online Microwave Moisture Gauge


General Description

The MA-600HBF is an continuous microwave moisture analyser that is custom designed for accurate analysis of filter cake moisture on a horizontal belt filter. The MA-600HBF standard configuration employs three (3) sensors – one located 1 metre from each side of the filter bed and 1 in the centre. Real time moisture results from the MA-600HBF is typically used to control the vacuum pressure or belt speed, the objective of which is to ensure that the moisture of the filter cake is maintained within set point limits.

Callidan Instruments is the only company who manufactures a purpose-built online microwave moisture analyser for horizontal belt filters.

The MA-600HBF is suitable for use on most metallic and non metallic mineral concentrates. Typical uses for the MA-600HBF include:

•    real time moisture analysis of Copper concentrate
•    continuous moisture determination of Coal filter cake
•    online microwave moisture analysis of Iron ore concentrate
•    real time moisture analysis of Lead and Zinc concentrate
•    continuous moisture calculation of Nickel concentrate


Benefits  Features
•    Superior Precision and Accuracy •    Analyses 100% of the material on the conveyor
      from top to bottom
•    Uses MoistScan® patented microwave technology
      which is  the most popular microwave technology
      on the market for measuring moisture in bulk
•    Belt Scale not required •    Measures the bed depth of the material to
      compensate for mass flow rate. Other microwave
      analysers often require n input from a
      beltweigher or a radioactive source
•    Non Contact •    No contact with the material
•    Non Nucleonic •    No radioactive source is required
•    Low Whole of Life Costs •    As no beltweigher or radioactive source is required
      the ongoing costs associated with servicing and 
      regulatory compliance is minimal.
•    No wearing parts
•    No consumables
•    Easy to Install •    Fully assembled and easily bolts to the stringer  
      supports of the conveyor
•    Seamless Plant Integration •    Wide range of communication options for 
      transmitting data to Plant PLC
•    Remote Access Calibration &
•    Cost-effective remote communication access for
      periodic checking of calibration
