Sugar Beet Pulp

Proactive Avoidance of Issues Controlled by Moisture

Improving the efficiency of the process of converting sugar beet pulp into pellets or pulp fibre for animal feed is done by reducing the drying time and energy costs involved by monitoring and controlling moisture levels during production. Accurate moisture testing instruments optimize production—helping yield the highest quality products AND save money along the way. But it’s difficult to choose the best moisture analyzer, when so many options are available on the market – MoistTech has the diamond standard in solutions!

Typically 1/3 of a sugar plant’s fuel consumption is used in the drying of byproducts such as sugar beet. MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensor can greatly reduce the energy costs used during drying by optimizing the dryer – knowing exact moisture levels before and after the dryer make this possible.

Return on Investment

Other moisture sensor instruments may yield variable results, but not the IR-3000—it generates consistent, accurate results, even in the harshest environments. At MoistTech, we understand the importance of testing and regulating moisture and other vital levels in sugar beet production. We also know how important it is to cut costs without compromising on quality. The IR-3000 is low cost, energy efficient, and reduces start-up and down times. It also eliminates waste due to incorrect  moisture levels.


Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure  moisture within tenths of a percent of most applications


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

Why Choose MoistTech

With our 40 years of experience and knowledge—and help from our industry partners—MoistTech has developed the IR-3000, a powerful moisture sensor capable of accurately measuring and regulating moisture levels in numerous applications. The IR-3000 stands above the competition with its immediate, non-contact measuring capabilities.


Locate the point in the production process in which measuring moisture will be the most crucial and beneficial. Identify how you will use the moisture measurement data for improvements and if it will tie into your PLC.

Remember this could involve more than one installation point!


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.
