Film Thickness Measurement

An Efficient Moisture Control System

For more than 40 years MoistTech has been working with industry on film thickness measurement and moisture control in the manufacturing environment. With the help of industry partners, we recently developed and released a new product, the IR-3000 that is revolutionary in the industry. It is ideally suited to measure moisture levels, coating and film thicknesses, and temperature in the factory.

Manufacturers have been very successful in reducing out-of-spec film thickness by installing the IR-3000 Near Infrared (NIR) sensor. It provides a continuous, accurate measurement of film thickness. The unit is mounted above the assembly line and sends readings to a computer that can send an alarm for out of range readings, or make pre-programmed adjustments to the line. We understand that small differences in the film thickness make a lot of difference in whether the product lies within specification or not.

Optimize Your Production Quality Today!

PERFORMANCE

Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure  moisture within tenths of a percent of most applications

STABILITY

MoistTech sensors withstand the test of time and are low to zero maintenance

RELIABILITY

Rely on MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors to never drift or need re-calibration

COST OF OWNERSHIP

A moisture measurement system is essential for the production process and in some cases will pay for itself in less than 30 days

Benefits of Film Thickness Measurement

  • Improved product quality and consistency
  • 100% product inspection
  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced start-up times
  • Less waste
  • Lower energy costs
  • Fewer line stoppages

Trust in our Experience

Our sensor calibrations, algorithms, measurement wavelengths and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory and require no maintenance. With the product loss software capability it becomes insensitive to production environment effects such as small gaps, inert material, foreign objects, and the belt or screw conveyors themselves are removed from the measurement calculation, providing the most accurate readings possible.

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.

Assess

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!

Develop

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. 

Support

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.

MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the film thickness measurement process. We are known for our accuracy, dependability and durability in the industry. We continue to gather data from the field to help us ensure that our instrumentation within the harshest industrial environment.

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.

The IR-3000 allows users to save money throughout the entire production process, while making the best quality product at the same time. With MoistTech, you don’t need to compromise.
