Roof-tile manufacturing involves several stages. Clay material is separated based on specific factors to fit the final product. Then, the material is rolled, and a mixture of fiberglass and cement, called fiber cement, is added in the mixing tank. Fiber cement is durable, water-resistant, and does not crack or rot.
In some cases, customers have installed the SDM WT in the underflow of the mixing tank to measure the % of solids and control the fiber cement’s thickness. The measuring instrument’s output is used to regulate the process using valves for water addition and slurry mass.
