Introducing the PrediktIR II

LIMAB UK is delighted to announce the addition of yet another near-infrared (NIR) gauging system to their already extensive range of NDC technologies’ non-contact measurement products.

The PrediktIR II 

PrediktIR II Gauging SystemThe PrediktIR II, which is available in two options, has been uniquely designed for the important process measurement of moisture in bulk industrial applications (PrediktIR II Bulk Materials Moisture Gauge) and the moisture or coat-weight thickness measurement in converting applications (PrediktIR II Coat-Weight Thickness Measurement Gauge).

PrediktIR II Gauging System

Replacing the PrediktIR and the ConvertIR respectively, the PrediktIR II gauging system provides long-term stability and accurate moisture/coat-weight measurement independent of changes in ambient conditions (such as lighting, temperature, or humidity) and is tolerant to process physical changes (such as pass height) allowing companies to tightly and consistently control processes with the highest degree of confidence.

PrediktIR II Gauging System

Through accurate measurement and precise control, companies in both the bulk industry and the converting industry are able to enhance product quality and consistency, reduce waste and avoid over-drying meaning faster start-up and grade changes, and improved process productivity.
