Moisture Content in Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIB)

Superior Moisture Control

There is hardly a device that we use in our daily life that doesn’t rely on lithium-ion batteries (LIB), from power tools, laptops, MP3 players and mobile phones, to e-bikes and other electric and hybrid vehicles.

Our IR3000C Near-Infrared (NIR) sensor is capable of measuring thickness of micro-porous separator film improving product consistency and quality. The 3000C 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.  Using state of the art components allows our 3000C series sensor to be installed in the most extreme locations. As a result of MoistTech’s digital processing, only the IR3000C series provides true data for all of your thickness application needs.

Discover Precise Measurements 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

Installation Expertise

The sensor should be installed several inches above the conveyor belt or screw conveyor so that it can continuously monitor the process and can control the moisture content either manually or automatically in the finished product. In addition to the MoistTech management software, MoistTech offers several readout options to display and/or adjust the measurement outputs.

Replacing slow, time-consuming off-line sample testing, freeing up personnel time and delivering quick payback through reduced scrap, faster start-up and reduced targets for LIB coat weight and separator film will ultimately increase the bottom line. The resulting consistent product performance and long battery life help to maintain customer and supply chain loyalty.

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.

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.

Using the IR-3000, you’ll 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.
