Powder & Bulk Materials Moisture

Crucial Moisture Control

Powder and bulk moisture monitoring is critical for creating quality products from dry beverage products to laundry soap powder. Monitoring and control of the production process are necessary from raw materials, blending and the end product. Reduce downtime, start-up time, waste and energy costs by monitoring the powder and bulk moisture levels at every stage of the process. When one measurement is out of tolerance, a quick automatic or manual adjustment can be made to keep things moving correctly before costly time is lost, and waste is produced.

Typical moisture accuracy is about ± 0.05%, with coating accuracy varying from 0.1 to 0.01 micron, depending on the coating type. A typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize recording requirements or PLC.

The sensor is preset before shipping and requires no calibration maintenance. Mount it above your production line for easy non-contact measures. It stands above other sensors because it can correctly deal with small gaps in powder or bulk measurements.

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

Dryer Control

Efficiency is a top of the line priority for manufacturers and the dryer can drain a lot of that. Measuring the moisture before and after the dryer allows the user to optimize the dryer settings to save time and money. A proper moisture control system will pay for itself with the energy savings from the dryer in less than 30 days. Efficiently controlling the dryer within the facility can drastically change the productivity levels.

MoistTech’s Near-Infrared Solution

For more than 40 years, MoistTech has been measuring the moisture in various manufacturing applications. With the input of our industry partners, we have developed the ultimate NIR moisture sensor for instant and non-contact measurement. The IR-3000 takes continual measures of moisture, temperature, chemical composition, coating thickness, and other important levels, as well, with high accuracy.


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.


We offer service and support throughout the world for our moisture measurement sensors and would be happy to connect you with a rep in your area. Contact us today for more information!
