Maize Meal Moisture Accuracy Methods

November 23, 2022by Kalstein

Many industries require the use of moisture analyzers to control and monitor the environment in which their products are manufactured. Humidity is a critical environmental factor in many areas of manufacturing, as it can affect the quality of the final product.

Moisture analyzers can also be used to monitor the manufacturing process. This is especially useful in the case of processes that require material drying. Moisture analyzers can be used to determine the point at which the material is sufficiently dry, which helps to ensure a quality product.

In general, moisture analyzers are a valuable tool for any industry and Kalstein has the ideal equipment that requires moisture control. It provides a way to monitor the material and manufacturing process, allowing operators to adjust moisture levels as needed.

Integration of Moisture Analysers

The moisture analyzers for maize flour are used to determine the percentage of water found in the grain. Moisture analysis is one of the most important stages of the flour manufacturing process, as too much or too little moisture can significantly affect the quality of the final product.

They use a method called electrical impedance, which is able to determine the percentage of water in the corn grain in question. This technique is based on the fact that the electrical resistance of water is much lower than that of dry grains. Therefore, if the electrical resistance of a sample of maize flour is measured, it is possible to obtain an estimate of the percentage of moisture present in it.

This method is carried out by placing the sample inside the equipment, which is heated to a specific temperature. The sample is left for a specific period of time, and then the weight is measured, and the water content is calculated from the difference in the weight of the sample. This method is relatively fast and accurate, with a margin of error of +/- 1%.

Analyzers to control product quality

Moisture analysis is essential to determine the optimal cooking time of flour. If the flour contains too much water, the cooking process will be slower; if the flour is too dry, the cooking time will be too short. In both cases, the quality of the final flour will be affected.

Therefore, moisture analyzers for maize flours are very useful tools to ensure the quality of the final product. They are also essential for energy saving, as they allow to adjust the cooking time according to the level of moisture of the flour.

In general, they are reliable and accurate devices. However, it is important to select the right model according to the specific needs of the processing plant. Periodic calibration of the instrument is also important to ensure the accuracy of the results.
