Breadcrumb Moisture

Increase Production Efficiency

Maintaining proper breadcrumb moisture levels is essential to a high quality final product. Even small amounts of excess moisture during the production process can result in breadcrumbs that spoil too quickly or don’t maintain desired freshness.

By measuring breadcrumb moisture prior to packaging, you can be assured that the product isn’t too moist, resulting in a product too heavy for its weight, or too dry, resulting in too much product to reach the required weight.


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

Proper Installation

MoistTech’s IR-3000 breadcrumb moisture sensor is designed to measure moisture at end of the production process as the breadcrumbs stabilize, just prior to packaging. We recommend the moisture sensor be mounted 4-12 inches above the conveyor so it can continuously monitor moisture levels after the product has cooled.

The IR-3000 breadcrumb sensor is unique in that it is able to monitor the process, even with small gaps in product flow, without impacting the accuracy.
