Thermo Fisher Scientific has released its third-generation Thermo Scientific low frequency microwave (LFM3) moisture analyzer. The analyzer, according to the company, provides improved, real-time moisture measurements and can be easily integrated and installed in a variety of mining applications. The LFM3 allows for the precise addition of water to control dust in operations where adding too much water can cause ore to become sticky and clog chutes or screens. It also integrates across Thermo Scientific material handling solutions that incorporate sampling, weigh feeders and elemental analysis through the Thermo Scientific CB Omni cross-belt analyzer. Easily replaceable electronic modules make the LFM3 easy to maintain and its circuitry is designed to perform in areas with high microwave attenuation. Additionally, the LFM3 emits very low microwave power, making it EMC compliant in all countries.
