Plastic Film Thickness & Moisture

Essential Quality Control

When producing plastic film—whether for camera film or packaging—consistency is critical to the quality of your end product. Maintaining the ideal thickness for your plastic films is the difference between a quality, product to provide your customers and waste.

MoistTech specializes in moisture testing—but that isn’t all our instruments do. The MoistTech IR-3000C is a moisture sensor capable of taking accurate readings of product thickness, as well as temperature, chemical based coatings, and chemical composition.

There are many instruments on the market that test thickness alone. Yet, to achieve the highest quality plastic films, much more is required. The IR-3000 was developed through our years of experience and research and helpful feedback from our industry partners. Meaning, it has the latest, most relevant technology and highest performance capabilities.  Why buy an instrument with only one function when you can get one that does it all?

The IR-3000 is ideal for use as a film thickness moisture analyzer. It takes instant, non-contact readings wherever you need them on the production line. Designed for efficiency, the IR-3000 reduces start-up and down times, boosting plastic film quality and dramatically decreasing waste.

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

Near-Infrared Technology

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.
