Manufacturing Improvements with Moisture Control: Converting Moisture Applications

Converting moisture applications rely on proper monitoring management during production. Having the precise moisture levels of paper products in converting operations, newsprint, tissue, and corrugated liner pulp has become a critical component during production. Paper can easily become either too wet or too dry, wasting a manufacturer’s time and money. With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge and experience, MoistTech has developed the IR 3000 Moisture Sensor. Our moisture meters are ideally suited to measure the moisture levels, as well as water and solventbased coatings, along with the coat weight thickness during the paper/converting process. This helps improve the manufacturer’s product quality and increased productivity with sustainable cost savings. Browse our moisture meters today! 

During the paper/converting process, there are many locations throughout the manufacturing where a paper moisture control sensor from MoistTech can be used. The location is often determined by the space availability and accessibility on the web/converting machinery, along with the manufacturer’s moisture control plan. Once installed, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process and control the moisture content, both manually and automatically using our dependable near-infrared (NIR) moisture measurement and control technology.

Time is Money

At MoistTech, we understand that time is money. We know that you want to get the highest quality product out to your consumers in the most efficient manner possible. That’s why we’ve designed a better analyzer for coating moisture measurement — our moisture control sensors. With support centers throughout the world, MoistTech is ready and willing to help you with coating moisture measurement for your application.

MoistTech is a highly experienced moisture meter technology company, especially when it comes to the requirements in the paper/converting process. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms, and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory to best suit your needs. Typical moisture accuracy is about 0.05%, and coating accuracy varies from about 0.1 to 0.01 microns, depending on the coating type. The typical analog range is from 0-10% moisture and up to as much as 40%, however, this is subject to application.

Keep the integrity of your product by keeping the coating thickness constant with our moisture meters. Use our coating thickness gauge to sound an alarm or make an automatic adjustment if the coating thickness is out of spec range. If you’re looking for high-quality moisture control sensors for all types of industrial productions and products, MoistTech is here for you! We have a variety of applications and machines that are designed for your specific product and product line. For more information about our products, connect with us directly.

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.

Client Testimonials

“Our customer was having issues with controlling the moisture on different types of paperboard. Before the MoistTech IR-3000 Online Moisture Sensor was installed, the only method of measurement was by grabbing a sample and taking it to the lab. By installing the MoistTech IR-3000 Online Moisture sensor over the process, our customer could now monitor the moisture continuously at a +/- 0.1% accuracy which helped tremendously with being able to make any adjustments on the speed or the temperature of their dryers. The sensor was also integrated with their PLC using one of our three 4-20mA outputs.”

“Ideal for power plants, DDG and pellet manufacturing the MoistTech sensor is the only product that can measure to accuracy of. 0.1 percent on screw conveyors. The instruments patented software removes any effect of the screw and only measures the product. The model 3000 is the only sensor with this technology and makes other moisture analyzers obsolete. Designed specifically for Biomass measurement the success of the 3000 is proven by the number of installations in major production plants worldwide.”
