Automatic Moisture Analyser System (AMAS)
This fully automatic system can determine the moisture content of bulk-material samples of up to 6 kg in weight. For this purpose, the AMAS can be integrated in an automatic sampling unit, thereby allowing the analysis to be carried out immediately after the sample has been taken from the material.
Operating Behaviour & Mechanical Characteristics
The AMAS process begins with the filling of the drying dish with the moist sample of bulk material. This is then spread evenly over the dish and weighed.
After a certain period of time for drying, the dish is removed from the oven, weighed, and then replaced in the oven.
This last step is repeated until the material is completely dry and the results of two successive weighing operations are identical. The dish is then emptied and cleaned to receive the next sample. The illustration shows the AMAS with an eccentric vibration-grinding mill for reducing the sample to fine particles in readiness for subsequent material analysis.
