Carbonless Coating Moisture

Benefits of Implementing Moisture Control

Moisture content is an important factor when it comes to the quality control of carbonless coatings. Without maintaining the proper moisture levels, the quality of your paper becomes inferior and waste occurs, causing potential losses for your company.

To prevent this from happening, you need an accurate carbonless coating moisture analyzer. But with so many moisture testing instruments on the market, how do you choose the best one for you?

The IR-3000 measures moisture (in % dry and % wet) by taking instant, non-contact readings, allowing you to adjust moisture levels either automatically or manually. Our sensor can also measure temperature, water-based coatings, and chemical composition with accuracy, along with other levels vital to carbonless coating.

Control Moisture Levels Now!


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

Efficiency and Profits

MoistTech knows your company wants to cut production costs without damaging product quality. With the IR-3000, you are able to reduce start-up and downtimes, and the increased quality of your carbonless coatings drastically reduces product waste, too.

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.

What is the Solution?

For over forty years, MoistTech has been studying moisture’s role in a wide variety of production processes, including paper manufacturing. We also take the time to discuss with our industry partners what they need from their moisture sensors. Their feedback—combined with our experience and research—is what makes the MoistTech IR-3000 one of the best performing moisture sensors on the market.


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

Quality and consistency are crucial when it comes to maintaining a manufacturing line. Continuous monitoring of moisture content provides proactive avoidance of potential issues caused by out of tolerance moisture levels. Producers focus to minimize cost, reduce waste, increasing product quality, and maximizing plant efficiency. Wasted efforts are certainly a drain on resources in addition to wasted product, creating the need to evaluate and implement lean manufacturing principles.
