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.

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) and RF (radio frequency) technologies for instant non-contact moisture analysis. The newly developed IR-3000 moisture meters and software can be configured and calibrated for numerous components in virtually any application. MoistTech sensors are designed to allow users to optimize their processes and dramatically improve product quality. Unsurpassed in performance, stability, reliability, repeatability, maintainability, and cost of ownership, the MoistTech series of moisture analysis sensors are the answer to controlling moisture in your product.

By utilizing a MoistTech moisture meter, 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 moisture meters are the pinnacle of performance. They are unsurpassed in their ability to accurately measure the moisture content of most applications to within tenths of a percent. Our sensors are reliable and precise, ensuring that you get the most accurate readings every time. With our moisture meters, you can feel confident that you are getting the best results every time.


MoistTech’s moisture meters are designed to go the distance, providing reliable, long-term results. Our sensors are built to last, with low to zero maintenance requirements. 


MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors are an invaluable tool for any business that needs to accurately measure moisture levels. They never drift or need re-calibration, so you can rely on them to provide accurate readings every time. 


If you’re looking for a reliable way to measure levels of moisture, a moisture meter is essential. Not only will it help to ensure production processes are running smoothly, but you can often recoup the cost of the system in less than a month.

MoistTech Advantages

Insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height, and color, MoistTech moisture meters provide continuous, reliable readings. Our sensors are one-time calibration and maintenance-free with a non-drift optical design, allowing operating personnel to confidently make immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements. We are unsurpassed in performance and accuracy for NIR moisture measurement technology for instant on-line, off-line, and laboratory moisture instrumentation.

MoistTech is recognized around the world as the leader in moisture management technology. We are a medium size company based in North America with offices worldwide.

Our analyzers can be found in thousands of applications around the world. In addition to measuring moisture, MoistTech moisture meters can also measure and control: coating thickness, oil, resin content, protein, fat, sugar, seasonings, nicotine, plastic film thickness, and many other constituents, making them an invaluable tool in fish food pellet production.
