Beet Pulp Moisture

Best Practices in Moisture Control

Beet pulp, a fibrous byproduct from sugar beets, is primarily used as animal feed for livestock. Beet pulp is traditionally sold in pellet form or as dried flakes. Beet pulp is a popular choice for feeding older horses as it eases chewing efforts when compared to hay. The moisture content of beet pulp is extremely important during production, even though this product is sold in a dried form. Before it is dried, it has high moisture content and is susceptible to mold. Unnecessary moisture increases the chances of mold, which makes the plant both unsellable and unsafe to handle.

If beet pulp is kept at proper moisture levels during production and handling, horses that ingest it can be just as healthy as those that eat hay. Because the product contains fairly low crude protein content and a profuse level of fiber, animal owners rely on beet pulp as a positive alternative to hay and grain.

Try It For 30 Days

Moisture meters, such as the ones manufactured by MoistTech, play a crucial role in achieving the ideal moisture content throughout the production process. These state-of-the-art near-infrared moisture control devices provide accurate and reliable measurements, ensuring that the dried beet pulp is neither too dry nor too wet. By utilizing a moisture meter, producers can effectively monitor and adjust the moisture content, resulting in optimal feed quality, increased nutritional value, and extended shelf life. Whether in the drying phase or during storage, investing in a MoistTech moisture meter enables farmers and feed producers to maximize efficiency and deliver superior feed for horses and livestock.

Why MoistTech?

Introducing the IR-3000 On-Line Sensor, the most advanced system available! Our decades of experience and knowledge, combined with feedback from our industry partners, have enabled us to create a moisture sensor that is capable of taking instant, non-contact measurements of moisture, temperature, and other vital levels with unprecedented accuracy. When it comes to moisture sensors, the IR-3000 is a clear choice.


Our sensors are unsurpassed in performance and can measure moisture within tenths of a percent for most applications. With the best-in-class accuracy of our moisture meter, you can be sure that the readings you get are precise and trustworthy.


MoistTech sensors withstand the test of time and are low to zero maintenance.


Rely on MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors to never drift or need re-calibration.


A moisture measurement system is essential for the production process and in some cases will pay for itself in less than 30 days.

What is the Solution?

MoistTech has studied moisture and its applications in manufacturing for over 40 years. That’s why we’re confident our moisture analyzers are a step above the rest. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture testing technology—which is how the IR-3000 came about.


Identifying the point in the production process at which measuring moisture is most important is critical for improving the production process. By using a moisture meter at the most crucial point in the production process, we can gain valuable data that can be used to make improvements. This data can be integrated with the PLC, enabling you to refine the production process further and increase efficiency. A moisture meter is an invaluable tool for improving production and should not be overlooked.


A closed loop process is achieved by incorporating a moisture measurement system into the manufacturing process. Developing a proactive solution to moisture control will avoid costly downfalls. 


MoistTech’s experts will assess your specific application with lab tests, calibrations and accuracy results to ensure our equipment will peform for you. All of our sensors are pre-calibrated prior to being shipped to create a plug-and-play operation for the end-user.

Understand the Process

Using the IR-3000 drastically cuts production costs. It is energy efficient, low maintenance, and decreases startup and down times. Over dried product causes waste; so does product that is too moist. With the IR-3000, these problems will no longer be an issue.
