Acetate Moisture

Moisture Testing Benefits

  • Shorter Start–up Times
  • Reduced Waste
  • Product Quality Improvement
  • Lessened Energy Costs
  • 100% Product Inspection
  • Less Amount of Downtime

Here at MoistTech, we understand the requirements needed to successfully produce acetate. We pre-set our acetate moisture testing calibrations, measurement wavelengths, sensor optical requirements, and algorithms at the factory. Accuracy is typically about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 5–15% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.

The acetate’s loose particles don’t create a long–lasting problem, but in dusty environments, we recommend installing the air purge system. The air purge system prohibits dust from building up on the sensor’s window.

When creating acetate, these same precautions must be kept a top concern. MoistTech’s IR–3000 Moisture Sensor will monitor the acetate moisture levels through each process to create a more profitable conveyor system. Like with any chemical, the temperature and moisture levels of acetate must be kept at an acceptable range to prevent an unstable chemical reaction.

Acetate Moisture Meter Installation

The MoistTech acetate moisture testing sensor should be mounted at least two inches above the conveyor. Mounting at this level will make certain the acetate creation is flawless from start to finish. To ease production, the manufacturer can position the sensor to adjust manually or automatically.

Dryer Control

Dryer control can be a very sensitive area to the production process. The over drying of materials not only creates low quality materials but also wastes energy. Save time, money and energy in drying costs by determining the moisture content before and after the drying process. 

What is the Solution?

MoistTech offers multiple solutions for moisture control in chemical applications. With exceptionally accurate and prceside moisture measurement and control protocols, our sensors are able to accurately measure within 0.1% on many applications – resulting in improved product quality and significant cost savings.


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. 


MoistTech’s experts will assess your specific application with lab tests, calibrations and accuracy results to ensure our equipment will peform for you. All of our sensors are pre-calibrated prior to being shipped to create a plug-and-play operation for the end-user.
