Cheese Moisture

Constant Moisture Control

For every type of cheese, the required moisture level needed varies. Having the correct moisture levels in cheese also guarantees the longest shelf life. Achieving the best end result requires constant supervision and regulation of moisture and temperatures during the entire cheese making process – something that requires sensitive instruments. Are you currently measuring cheese moisture during the process? Moisture measurement and control can yield a multitude of benefits within the production process.

We understand your desire to cut down on costs without compromising quality. The IR-3000F gives you that option: it is energy efficient, reduces start-up and down times, and eliminates waste due to incorrect moisture levels. By accurately measuring the moisture content, your end product will be of higher quality, as well as have the right texture, taste, and appearance—no matter what variety of cheese you’re making.

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

During the Production Process

MoistTech’s Food Grade moisture sensor is designed to be incorporated directly into the production line and create a closed loop process. Moisture content is a small aspect that plays a large role in the overall production of cheese. MoistTech can provide the diamond standard in moisture sensors to ensure your production line is providing top quality products every time.

What is the Solution?

We at MoistTech have combined our 40 years of experience and knowledge into one accurate, reliable moisture testing instrument: the IR-3000F. The IR-3000F is capable of not only measuring cheese moisture, but takes instant non-contact measurements of temperature, fat / oil.

When it comes to moisture testing, the IR-3000 offers top quality cheese moisture analysis, and at an affordable price.

MoistTech also offers a Food Grade Sanitary Valve Connection that is specifically designed for soft cheeses, sauces, dressings, chocolate, condiments and more. Learn more here


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.
