Moisture and Ash in Biomass

Better analysis leads to better quality

If you produce or consume biomass fuels, you know that quality is critical to your success, and you know that moisture and ash content control are critical to biomass fuel quality. Too much moisture and you get poor efficience and high emissions. Too much ash and you get fouling and slagging. And if either of those is uncontrolled, purchase contracts can fall through. Computrac can help.

Computrac provides quick and accurate primary measurements of both moisture and ash content for a wide range of biofuels. Because Computrac is a primary measurement, it correlates very strongly to conventional methods, but can deliver results with better repeatability in less time, regardless of operator skill. And because Computrac does not use an optical method, you don’t need to generate a new calibration curve if your feedstock is a different color this week than it was last week.

So if you currently use an oven, a muffle furnace or an optical system to test your biomass pellets or feedstocks, give us a call. Our experienced team of analytical chemists and applications consultants will help you find the solution that’s right for your product, your application, and your business.
