near-infrared moisture measurement


our advantages

rising above the competition

MoistTech Corp. holds the highest standard as the world’s leader in moisture control using NIR (Near Infrared) technology. Numerous years of engineering experience provides the expertise needed to outperform all other technologies. 

At MoistTech, we help you keep the moisture content of your product under control with our world class moisture analyzers. Increase your bottom line by reducing the scrap caused by excessive moisture during production and provide the immediate ability to make line adjustments to your moisture content in real-time to keep the line moving.


MoistTech Corp. manufactures the diamond-standard in Near-Infrared moisture control detection. Non-contact online sensors with hundreds of measurements per second provide a maintenance free, one-time calibration design providing real time, accurate measurements. MoistTech is a non-drift optical design made to ensure the accuracy and repeatability needed in any type of application.

Our products are specifically designed to never come in contact with your application. The non-contact feature eliminates wasted product and provides the most accurate measurement available for moisture control.

Instantaneous Measurements

For instant, accurate, repeatable online or offline measurements of moisture, coating thickness, nicotine or oil, the series of NIR sensors from MoistTech cannot be beaten. These sensors are made for non-contact, non-destructive measurements of the greatest accuracy. Use an NIR sensor in the lab or on the factory floor or take it into the field for fast, accurate results every time.

Instantly connect to your PLC or display to have access to real-time moisture monitoring on the production line. See an out of spec product? Immediately adapt to the changing moisture content with simple adjustments to avoid shutting down the line.

the moisttech advantage – we stand above the rest

avoid downtime with quick measurements

Enjoy immediate adjustments to your process based on real-time measurements from our online NIR sensors. Avoid costly downtime and excessive scrap by catching any out-of-tolerance readings as quickly as possible. Immediate changes can be made to your production line to stop extra waste and keep the line moving. Connect our sensors to your computer network or a production laptop by RS232 or Ethernet for complete software control of your line.

enjoy the versatility in placement

The MoistTech 3000 series sensors can be installed in many configurations using the bracket on the back or the top of the sensor enclosure. Most typical installations are mounted 4′-16′ (inches) from the product flow to be measured. Changes in product flow can be compensated for using our filtering, dampening and averaging.

rely on unbeatable accuracy

MoistTech provides unbeatable accuracy with superior near-infrared technology for both on-line measurement and laboratory use. With capabilities to ignore variations such as particle size, material height & color, the IR-3000 outperforms the competition to provide continuous, reliable readings without drift or the need for frequent re-calibration. Operators can immediate utilize the technology to allow for immediate line adjustments based on real-time measurements. Net Result = improved quality, reduced production costs and increased plant efficiency.

extreme efficiency

Multiple product or calibration codes can be stored within the unit to allow operators to switch from various products with ease. Streamlining the production process to include immediate moisture measurement not only improves the final product but allows the plant to operate more effectively, experience less downtime and increase production quality. 

MoistTech utilizes the most advanced state-of-the-art technology with Near-Infrared measurement, surpassing the out dated analysis of moisture content.

Analyze your moisture readings with your equipment or ours. Several sensors can feed to the same computer for analysis. Our sensors can transmit over an RS232 connection or by Ethernet. Send readings to:

  • Several workstations for analysis
  • Your manufacturing computer process controller
  • The operator’s laptop A touch-screen analysis

The system is simple and stress-free to install. Multi-language displays are available. We interface with many software programs.
