Moisture Balance Aids Quality Assurance in Ethanol Production

Since we are on the subject of extracting fuel from DDGS residues I thought it might be a good idea to take a look at the entire production process of ethanol. This video gives a good overview. And right at about 2:20 we have the explanation that shows how we get the DDGS residues. These by products are either sold as livestock feed or further processed to extract residual fuel. In any event, what I’d like to note is the role of moisture analyzers. While not directly mentioned in this video, moisture analyzers are critical to ensuring quality and an integral part of the production process.
