Michells’ Moisture in Liquids Analyzer Provides Reliable, Accurate Readings in Low-Moisture Environments

Rowley, MA: A major producer of synthetic rubber has selected Michell Instruments’ Liquidew I.S. moisture in liquids analyzer to monitor critical processes at its plant in Asia.

The plant produces Polybutadiene, a form of synthetic rubber commonly used in the manufacturing of automotive tires. Moisture content must be kept to a minimum specification of less than 1ppmw to optimize the catalytic reaction, maximizing production.

The intrinsically safe, moisture in liquids analyzer, Liquidew I.S, is capable of measuring moisture levels down to 0.001ppmW and can reliably give accurate readings in the low-moisture environment. In total, six Liquidew I.S. analyzers were installed at key points in the process to monitor moisture levels in the feedstock, the solvent as well as in the drying process.

The Liquidew I.S. moisture analyzer was selected for this application because it measures from 0.001 to 1000 ppmW with a fast response and recovery time, allowing it to rapidly indicate changes in moisture concentration. This is ideal for optimizing the drying process as it can reduce the number of drying cycles required.
