Soft Pet Food Moisture

Striving for Quality

Soft pet food manufacturers need to pay close attention to the moisture content of their products. Too much moisture and the food can be subject to bacteria growth, while too little moisture may require the addition of too much product to meet the necessary weight. Fortunately, moisture meter testing can eliminate these problems and concerns by identifying moisture issues immediately. This testing helps ensure the quality of pet food products and provides peace of mind for manufacturers and pet owners alike.

MoistTech‘s moisture meters play a crucial role in ensuring the moisture content of soft pet food is within optimal levels. These advanced near-infrared moisture control devices provide accurate and reliable measurements, allowing pet food manufacturers to closely monitor and control the moisture content during the production process. Maintaining the proper moisture content is essential for the quality, texture, and palatability of soft pet food. By utilizing MoistTech’s moisture meters, pet food manufacturers can achieve consistent and high-quality products that meet the nutritional needs of pets while maximizing shelf life and reducing the risk of spoilage. This ensures that pet owners can provide their beloved companions with safe and delicious soft pet food.

MoistTech is recognized around the world as the leader in NIR (near-infrared) and RF (radio-frequency) moisture management technology. We are a medium size company based in North America with offices around the world to provide you with the moisture control solutions you need. Contact us today!

Soft Pet Food Moisture Content Solutions

MoistTech series of on-line moisture sensors for moisture content measurement are designed for full, real-time process control. Our online moisture sensors use exceptionally accurate NIR (near–infrared) and RF (radio-frequency) technologies for instant, non-contact moisture analysis. 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, our series of moisture analysis sensors are the answer to controlling moisture in your product.


In order to ensure optimal production performance, it is essential to identify the most crucial point in the process where measuring moisture will be beneficial. To this end, we may install a moisture meter at multiple points in the process in order to collect the data needed to identify areas for improvement in the production process. This data can then be used in conjunction with the PLC to make any necessary changes and improvements.


Using a moisture meter in the manufacturing process is an effective way to create a closed-loop system for moisture control. This proactive approach to moisture management can help avoid costly mistakes down the line. 


Accuracy and reliability in moisture content is crucial. That’s why we pre-calibrate all of our sensors before they are shipped, guaranteeing a plug-and-play operation for the end user. We take it a step further by providing expert lab tests, calibrations, and accuracy results to ensure that the equipment is suitable for your specific application.
