Cereal Moisture

Controlling Moisture in Cereal

All cereal—whether flaked, puffed, rolled, shredded, shaped, hot or cold, sugar-coated or plain—must meet certain moisture level requirements in order to achieve cereal’s trademark long shelf life. Both temperature and moisture levels must be constantly monitored to ensure proper cooking and shaping. All of this requires accurate and reliable moisture testing instruments. Is cereal moisture a crucial step in your production process? MoistTech manufactures the best possible solution for your facility.


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

Instant Benefits

At MoistTech, we understand your need to watch production costs without cutting quality. That’s why we’ve designed the IR-3000 to be energy efficient. It also reduces start-up and downtimes, and eliminates product waste due to incorrect moisture content. The IR-3000 ensures a top-quality end product that has the exact taste, texture, and appearance you desire.

MoistTech Capabilities

With the help from our industry partners—and our over 40 years of experience and knowledge—we’ve developed the MoistTech IR-3000F, an instrument capable of accurately measuring and regulating moisture in numerous applications, including cereal production.

While MoistTech is all about moisture, the IR-3000 measures temperature, sugar, oil / fat, and more. We’re convinced (and our customers are too) that the IR-3000 is the best cereal moisture analyzer 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

Here at MoistTech, we have developed a series of high-tech sensors to detect moisture in a variety of materials. We utilize near-infrared (NIR) technology for a non-contact solution to moisture content readings. NIR is insensitive to material variations, such as particle size or color, and they provide an accurate, continuous reading.
