PVB Sheet Moisture

Near-Infrared Moisture Control

Moisture content is critical to PVB sheet production. Without maintaining optimal moisture levels throughout the production process, proper binding between the resin and material does not take place and the quality of your PVB sheet becomes inferior—which causes product waste, and therefore losses in profits.

The only way to prevent this from occurring is by using a reliable moisture testing instrument. But with so many moisture sensors on the market, how do you choose the best one for your product?

The IR-3000 takes instant, non-contact readings of moisture in % wet and % dry, allowing you to adjust the moisture content of your PVC sheet either manually or automatically. Highly accurate measurements of temperature, resins, water-based coatings, chemical composition, and other levels vital to PVB sheet are also taken anywhere on the production line that you require.

Compare MoistTech to Competition


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

Increasing Profits

Understanding your company’s need to cut production costs without compromising on product quality, we designed the IR-3000 with 100% efficiency. Using the IR-3000 not only reduces start-up and down times, but by drastically increasing your PVC sheet’s quality, product waste is all but eliminated.

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.

MoistTech Provides the Solution

For over 40 years, we at MoistTech have been developing the latest in moisture technology. Our decades of research and experience –combined with feedback from our industry partners—has all gone into the MoistTech IR-3000, a moisture sensor ideally suited for use as a PVB sheet moisture analyzer.


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.
