Battery Paste Moisture

Discover How Moisture Control Effects Profits

Every manufacturer knows that if you want to make a profit, it is imperative that you keep your costs down. Wasted raw materials are an issue for most companies, and battery paste moisture can lead to raw material waste, but it does not have to be that way. With MoistTech’s IR 3000 Moisture Sensor, you can reduce waste and increase your company’s profits.

For over 40 years, MoistTech has assisted companies – large and small – here in the United States and all across the world, reduce their overhead and increase their production. With the help of our IR 3000 Moisture Sensor, and its real-time readings, you are able to make immediate adjustments, which will reduce wasted raw materials.

In addition, even if your battery paste has variations, they will not affect sensor readings which means you receive accurate readings each and every time. After a one-time calibration in our factory, you will find the IR 3000 to be maintenance free. That means, your employees can spend time where it is needed most – producing your products and getting them out the door.

Our sensors can be mounted above conveyor belts or other equipment as they never need to come into direct contact with your materials for you to receive an accurate reading.


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

What 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.

We’ve combined our decades of experience and knowledge with feedback from our industry partners to create a moisture sensor capable of taking instant, non-contact measurements of moisture, temperature, and other vital levels with the utmost accuracy. When it comes to moisture sensors, the IR-3000 is the most advanced system available.


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.


If you find you are having issues with battery paste moisture, you need to contact us. Our staff can show you how our IR 3000 can reduce wasted raw materials, reduce re-work time and overall increase your employee’s productivity. Contact us today to learn more.

Understand the Process

Using state of the art components allows our 3000 series sensor to be installed in the most extreme locations. As a result of MoistTech’s digital processing, only the IR-3000 series provides true data for all of your thickness application needs.

Our IR-3000 Near-Infrared (NIR) sensor is capable of measuring thickness of micro-porous separator film, improving product consistency and quality. The 3000 Series provides continuous, reliable readings and is a one-time calibration, maintenance free, drift free optical design allowing for immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.
