The NIR-6000 industrial-grade analyzer provides continuous on-line moisture measurement in challenging process environments. Capturing measurements every four milliseconds, our analyzers can automatically adjust your process to meet your moisture measurement targets. This ongoing monitoring of products such as wood, building materials, pulp and paper, and tobacco enables forward-thinking and determination of optimum drying process conditions essential for manufacturing.
The central pillar of the NIR Series, the NIR-6000 is designed with durability in mind for the numerous challenging manufacturing environments and applications we support.
The NIR-6000 industrial-grade analyzer provides an on-line, real-time, accurate moisture analysis of your product. Capturing measurements every four milliseconds, our analyzers can automatically adjust your process to meet your moisture measurement targets. This ongoing monitoring of products such as wood, building materials, pulp and paper, and tobacco enables forward thinking and determination of optimum drying process conditions essential for manufacturing. Our sensor employs advanced near infrared reflectance (NIR) technology, which is continuous, non-contact and non-destructive. Your process is never impeded and your product never compromised. For low optical reflectance applications, upgrade to the high-sensitivity version for unmatched precision in the most demanding manufacturing environments.
Based on proven near infrared reflectance (NIR) technology for precise moisture measurements, the NIR-6000 is accurate to within +/- 0.1% moisture for many applications. Hundreds of manufacturing facilities rely on the NIR-6000 to generate accurate and reliable results required for responsive process control to optimize production and improve efficiency.
The NIR-6000 is rated IP65 for years of trouble-free operation and low cost of ownership. Hardened electronics are designed for stable operation over a wide temp range of 0 - 55°C (32 to 131°F) in the standard model. Optional side panels extend this operating range down to -20 °C (-4 °F) with heating and up to 85 °C (185 °F) with air vortex cooling.
For many applications, the NIR-6000 can be delivered pre-calibrated based on our extensive database of calibrations for almost turn-key operation. Included NIR-6000 configuration software quickly and easily configures the sensor for rapid start-up.
