Converting Moisture Applications

Measure Moisture & Coat Weight Instantly & Accurately

Precise Moisture Levels in Paper Products

Having the precise moisture levels of paper products in converting operations, newsprint, tissue, and corrugated liner pulp has become a critical component during production. Paper can easily become either too wet or too dry, wasting a manufacturer’s time and money. With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge and experience, MoistTech has developed the IR 3000 Moisture Sensor. Our moisture meters are ideally suited to measure the moisture levels, as well as water and solventbased coatings, along with the coat weight thickness during the paper/converting process. This helps improve the manufacturer’s product quality and increased productivity with sustainable cost savings. Browse our moisture meters today! 

During the paper/converting process, there are many locations throughout the manufacturing where a paper moisture control sensor from MoistTech can be used. The location is often determined by the space availability and accessibility on the web/converting machinery, along with the manufacturer’s moisture control plan. Once installed, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process and control the moisture content, both manually and automatically using our dependable near-infrared (NIR) moisture measurement and control technology.

Experience the Many Benefits of MoistTech’s Moisture Meters:

  • Improved product quality & lower energy costs
  • Reduction of scrap & increased productivity
  • Non-contact instant moisture measurement
  • Provides non-contact readings in real time
  • Instant, continuous moisture & coating measurements in real time
  • Incredible speed, capturing thousands of measurements per second
  • Indifferent to material variations like particle size or color
  • Unaffected by production environment effects like small gaps or inert material
  • Removes foreign objects, gaps, and the belt or screw conveyors from the measurement calculation with product loss software capability
  • Requires just a one-time calibration which is done at the factory
  • Little to no maintenance
  • Drift-free based on its optical design

MoistTech is a highly experienced moisture meter technology company, especially when it comes to the requirements in the paper/converting process. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms, and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory to best suit your needs. Typical moisture accuracy is about 0.05%, and coating accuracy varies from about 0.1 to 0.01 microns, depending on the coating type. The typical analog range is from 0-10% moisture and up to as much as 40%, however, this is subject to application.

Keep the integrity of your product by keeping the coating thickness constant with our moisture meters. Use our coating thickness gauge to sound an alarm or make an automatic adjustment if the coating thickness is out of spec range. If you’re looking for high-quality moisture control sensors for all types of industrial productions and products, MoistTech is here for you!
