Detergent Moisture

Top of the Line Moisture Control

Maintaining an absolutely correct detergent moisture level in detergent powders has become a critical component during production. Being such a porous material, detergents can easily become either too wet or dry wasting manufacturers time and money.

With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech has developed its highly advanced IR-3000 detergent moisture sensor which is ideally suited to measure the detergent moisture levels in the production process while improving manufactures product quality and lowering their energy costs.


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


By installing the IR-3000 Detergent Moisture Sensor in the processing area, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process and can control the detergent moisture content either manually or automatically.

To accurately measure the detergent moisture levels, the sensor should be installed over the conveyor transporting the detergent. The sensor should be mounted several inches above the belt, screw conveyor or any area where the material can be viewed.

MoistTech is the Solution

MoistTech has studied moisture and its applications in manufacturing for over 40 years. That’s why we’re confident our moisture analyzers are a step above the rest. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture testing technology—which is how the IR-3000 came about.

      • Process Efficiency Monitoring
      • Lower Energy Costs
      • Overall Increased Productivity
      • Less Downtime & Wasted Product
      • Lower Energy Costs
      • Reduced Start-Up Times
      • Full Product Inspection
      • Plug and Play: Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory
      • Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture
      • Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture and up to as much as 40%, subject to application
      • The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.


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.

Understand the Process

Using the IR-3000 drastically cuts production costs. It is energy efficient, low maintenance, and decreases startup and down times. Over dried product causes waste; so does product that is too moist. With the IR-3000, these problems will no longer be an issue.
