Proactively Avoid Quality Issues with Moisture Control

At Moist Tech, we specialize in creating top-of-the-line near-infrared (NIR) moisture measurement and control technology, which can be effectively used to control animal food moisture. Maintaining proper and consistent animal food moisture levels in animal feed is essential for a high-quality final product. When moisture levels aren’t regulated, products are at risk of mold and other threats that may negatively affect the overall quality.

Stable, fixed moisture levels, however, ensure that animal food products maintain consistency, and that product waste is minimized. Animal food that is too wet or too dry can result in the loss of a manufacturer’s time and money, as well as impact the quality of the end product.

Dryer control is an extremely sensitive area of the manufacturing process and with proper moisture control, dryer optimization can instantly save money. The MoistTech IR3000 moisture sensor provides the user with the ability to monitor and control moisture levels before and after the drying process.

Monitoring the moisture in the raw materials, controlling the mixing/blending process, and moisture of the feed in pellet form, not only ensures an end product with consistent quality but will enable substantial savings to be achieved in the production process. By using our moisture detector technology, the user will receive accurate data on the levels of moisture in the raw material. From there, the user will be able to accurately calculate the amount of moisture that needs to be added to the mix to achieve the correct consistency of the end product.

Animal kibble relies on consistent moisture control to maintain quality and consistency. Moisture content plays a large role in the percentages of other needed ingredients in the feed, including protein, carbohydrates, and fats to maintain a balanced blend.

The IR3000 series sensor can measure each kind of kibble and can store up to 50 product calibrations in one sensor with its near-infrared (NIR) moisture measurement and control technology. 

Accurately calculating the amount of moisture present or that needs to be added to the mix for proper consistency allows the user to have full control over the production line and adjustments.

Near-Infrared Moisture Detection is State-of-the-Art

The precision of NIR moisture sensors can help increase the quality of your product resulting in less lost time and money. 

Combining our long experience with improvements suggested by our customers, we’ve designed a better, more precise and more accurate NIR moisture sensor.

More Precision Than Other Technologies

The 3000 Series Near Infrared moisture sensor is designed to not only be more accurate but to be low maintenance as well. An initial calibration is all it takes, and our NIR moisture sensor is ready to go. The IR-3000 uses NIR technology to take precise measurements in percentage wet and percentage dry, allowing you to make real time adjustments either automatically or manually. Our NIR moisture sensor will help you achieve a better, more consistent product.

Instant ROI

The most “bang for the buck” happens when you can control the moisture in the process through an automatic, feed-back-loop control system. A feed-back-loop changes the process based on the in-line measurement. If the collection and analysis of real-time data is the only purpose of the testing, but the analysis of the data has potential to define substantive future process changes, an in-line solution may have a high potential ROI.

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 directly to your PLC by RS232 or Ethernet for complete software control of your line.

Unbeatable Accuracy & Reliability

Our non-drift optical design gives you repeatable results in the most accurate measurements available. Calibrated from the factory, the sensor requires no further maintenance to maintain their accuracy. Results are unaffected by heat or humidity.

We’ve used our 40+ years of knowledge and experience in the moisture management industry to develop the MoistTech IR-3000, a non-contact moisture meter instrument that accurately measures and regulates moisture in various applications, including animal food products.

Eliminate product waste and greatly reduce start-up and downtimes with the best moisture control sensors from MoistTech, the moisture management leader.

Client Testimonials

“Seriously, I am truly impressed by your product… we received sludge from 15-20 different paper mills directly dumped in a bin then transferred on a conveyor to be burned … now I have stopped the problematic mill and increase sludge consumption by 100T/day with the MoistTech system!”

Paper Milling Industry

“…I have found that by changing the moisture even by as little as 1% makes a noticeable difference in the pellet quality both in the durability and in the sheen. If the moisture varies by 3-5% it is almost impossible to consistently make a durable pellet. If the moisture rate trends upward, the amperage rate can have a detrimental effect on the production capacity of the mill.”

Wood Pelleting Industry

“The addition of the MoistTech IR3000 sensors have provided me with the ability to control our process by instantly increasing or decreasing material flow into the dryer… Prior to the MoistTech technology, it was a guessing game and time consuming OWL lab test post dryer.”
