Process monitoring and control are necessary for all phases of chemical processing, from raw materials to blending to the end product. Near-infrared (NIR) moisture measurement and control technology is widely used for raw material testing, quality control, and process monitoring due to the instant and non-contact measurements they provide. Our moisture meters are perfect for assisting with exactly this, so browse our products today. 

During the blending and mixing, processors are constantly adjusting moisture to maintain the quality of their products.  Small variations and excess moisture in mixes can result in clumping, affecting quality and consistency. During drying and granulation, moisture measurements play a crucial role in the production of chemicals. In-process measurements ensure optimization and elimination of overdrying, which can lead to a product that is out of specification and degradation.

Manufacturing Efficiency with Moisture Control

In the chemical industry, the quality of products, raw materials, and processes are held to very high standards. When it comes to quality, precision, and speed, trust that MoistTech can help you meet the utmost standards with our moisture control sensors. 

Realizing that many chemical processing companies use multiple primary reference measurements, either in-house or outsourced, MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors are easy to set up and use, providing instant and precise moisture measurements due to no constituent losses in handling. Additionally, instant measurements provide manufacturers with savings in analysis costs, delivery times, and shipping costs.

As the producer of the best moisture meters and technology, MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements of the chemical production process. Our chemical moisture sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms, and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. On moisture analysis involving dried chemicals, accuracies can be expected to be +/-0.05%.  The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements. For additional information or to discuss your application, please contact our headquarters.

With the help of industry partners and more than 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech has thousands of installations worldwide in chemical applications. We offer both online for the continuous readings of NIR moisture measurement and laboratory NIR moisture sensors for spot tests near lines or in your quality control labs.

Let’s Build Something Together

Are you looking to measure and control the moisture within your process? We have installed thousands of sensors in even the harshest conditions and would strive to earn your business!

Near-Infrared Moisture Detection is State-of-the-Art

The precision of NIR moisture sensors can help increase the quality of your product resulting in less lost time and money. 

Combining our long experience with improvements suggested by our customers, we’ve designed a better, more precise and more accurate NIR moisture sensor.

More Precision Than Other Technologies

The 3000 Series Near Infrared moisture sensor is designed to not only be more accurate but to be low maintenance as well. An initial calibration is all it takes, and our NIR moisture sensor is ready to go. The IR-3000 uses NIR technology to take precise measurements in percentage wet and percentage dry, allowing you to make real time adjustments either automatically or manually. Our NIR moisture sensor will help you achieve a better, more consistent product.

Instant ROI

The most “bang for the buck” happens when you can control the moisture in the process through an automatic, feed-back-loop control system. A feed-back-loop changes the process based on the in-line measurement. If the collection and analysis of real-time data is the only purpose of the testing, but the analysis of the data has potential to define substantive future process changes, an in-line solution may have a high potential ROI.

Avoid Downtime with Quick Measurements

Enjoy immediate adjustments to your process based on real-time measurements from our online NIR sensors. Avoid costly downtime and excessive scrap by catching any out-of-tolerance readings as quickly as possible. Immediate changes can be made to your production line to stop extra waste and keep the line moving. Connect our sensors directly to your PLC by RS232 or Ethernet for complete software control of your line.

Unbeatable Accuracy & Reliability

Our non-drift optical design gives you repeatable results in the most accurate measurements available. Calibrated from the factory, the sensor requires no further maintenance to maintain their accuracy. Results are unaffected by heat or humidity.

Chemical Moisture Applications

With continuous moisture meter readings from MoistTech’s technology, manufacturers can determine when the process has achieved its target moisture range.

Additionally, evaluating chemical moisture content throughout the process supplies manufacturers with savings in energy and fuel, in addition to less product loss. Continuous NIR moisture control sensors allow manufacturers to check moisture levels in real-time, which they can in turn use to specifically regulate their dryers to maximize the manufacturing process with minimal energy demands.

Client Testimonials

“The addition of the MoistTech IR3000s have provided me with the ability to control our process by instantly increasing or decreasing the material flow into the dryer. This variation of our material flow is based on the moisture content and belt scales to provide a dry weight. Prior to the MoistTech technology proved to be a guessing game and time-consuming OWL laboratory tests post dryer”

Bulk Materials Industry

MoistTech Corp. came in and supplied an IR3000 moisture gauge with a vortex cooling panel a few months ago, and to our complete satisfaction, the gauge has been running without any problem due to heat and is correlating with lab test results within 0.1%.”

MDF Processing Industry

“Not only can the IR-3000 measure moisture but also our customer applies a water based coating to some of their product and our sensor can measure the thickness of the coating at a very successful accuracy. Installing the IR-3000 Online Sensor will help our customer act immediately on any issues that might arise during production.”
