Thickness in Paper Converting

Consistency Speaks Volumes

Paper moisture measurements and control are critical throughout most stages of the paper making and converting process as manufacturers are constantly adjusting moisture to maintain the quality of their product. MoistTech’s advanced sensors can measure both moisture and coat weight with one device.

Both the measurement of moisture and coatweight/coating thickness are very important on paperwebs during the manufacturing process as the datacollection allows line personnel to improve plantefficiency and product quality within specification100% of the time. Polyethylene, polypropylene andother coatings can be measured and controlled to ahigh degree of accuracy.

Side by Side Comparison

The IR3000 provides users with the highest accuracyand measurement speed that is up to 20 times fasterthan conventional NIR instruments. With the pre-calibration of the IR3000, users can install andcommission their sensor within minutes.

Immediate Benefits: 

  • Improved Product Quality
  • Lower Waste & Energy Costs
  • Process Optimization
  • Increased Plant Efficiency
  • Dryer Control
  • Reduced Downtime


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?

With our 40 years of experience and knowledge—and help from our industry partners—MoistTech has developed the IR-3000, a powerful moisture sensor capable of accurately measuring and regulating moisture levels in numerous applications. The IR-3000 stands above the competition with its immediate, non-contact measuring capabilities.


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.
