Fish Food Pellet Moisture

Continuous Control

Fish food pellets (fish feed) are comprised of mostly aquatic meat proteins and plant proteins and contain varying oil and moisture levels. Analyzing moisture content throughout manufacturing is essential to a high-quality end product. Without moisture measurement instrumentation, the product can be too moist or dry, affecting product quality and overall product weight. With continuous fish food pellet moisture testing, moisture levels can be maintained at the proper level to produce an ideal product and minimize waste.

Side By Side Comparison

At MoistTech, we offer a series of online moisture sensors for measurement that are designed for full real-time process control. Our on-line moisture sensors use exceptionally accurate NIR (near infrared) technology for instant non-contact moisture analysis. 

producers can closely monitor and control the moisture content during the production process, preventing issues such as excessive dryness or moisture retention. This results in improved pellet quality, enhanced nutrient retention, and prolonged shelf life. Investing in a MoistTech moisture meter enables fish food pellet manufacturers to achieve the right moisture levels and deliver superior quality feed for aquatic organisms. Reach out to us today to learn more about how our moisture meters can assist with your fish food pellet production.


Our equipment never comes into contact with the product, allowing for less waste

zero drift

Our sensors are guaranteed not to drift over time – which saves time and money

closed loop

Create a closed-loop process by tying a moisture sensor into your PLC. Full control over the line!

no recalibrations

We’ve mastered the art of moisture sensors – your unit will never need to be recalibrated for the same product twice!
