Moisture content determination in fertilizers

Ensure quality with fast and accurate measurements

Application Note: Moisture content in fertilizers. Fast and accurate quality control

In fertilizer manufacturing, moisture content is important in three key areas.

In fertilizer manufacturing, moisture content is important in three key areas. Moisture is measured in the raw fertilizer materials for quantitative assessment, during fertilizer production for efficient in-process control, and in the quality control of finished fertilizer products for defining the overall quality, shelf-life and usability. Fast and precise information on moisture content can significantly contribute to ensuring quality and improving efficiency in fertilizer manufacturing. Quality standards defined by various regulatory bodies around the world include measuring moisture to ensure fertilizers perform as required.

In this application note, you will learn why moisture content is important for fertilizers, how to use the halogen moisture analyzer HX204 for fast and easy moisture content determination, a tried and tested method for measuring moisture in fertilizers as well as how the results from a halogen moisture analyzer compare to the drying oven method.
