Customer Q & A

I noticed you mentioned something on your blog that said that if a customer has a consistant result and if they have an moisture result a little lower or a little higher it is okay. Is there a maximum number they should not go over or under?

There really isn't a specific number to go higher or lower than for this, but considering that most mills want to stay below 1% ash and the difference between Premium and Super Premium is only 0.5% I would not recommend making adjustments for anything more than 0.1 - 0.2%. This approach works if you have a directional bias in your process that is consistent. You would ultimately use a correction factor to adjust for the bias.
