Dried Fruit & Vegetable Moisture

Superior Moisture Control

Acquiring precise moisture level measurements of dried fruits and vegetables becomes vital throughout the manufacturing procedure. Maintaining proper moisture levels in snack manufacturing eliminates products that are too moist which are prone to mold, or too dry, and light for their weight. Dried fruit moisture can be determined with MoistTech’s near-infrared detectors and accurately provide data back to a PLC.


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

Dryer Control

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 is the Answer!

Knowledge and expertise of moisture control in dried fruits and vegetables comes from over 40 years of prior installations, MoistTech developed their IR-3000 moisture sensor with Near-Infrared technology to continually determine moisture levels throughout the manufacturing process. Proper moisture control with the ability to make immediate process line adjustments enhances the end product quality and increases plant efficiency while decreasing waste.

Competing sensors cannot offer the same accuracy and repeatability as with MoistTech’s near-infrared technology.


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

Using the IR-3000 drastically cuts production costs. It is energy efficient, low maintenance, and decreases startup and down times. Over dried product causes waste; so does product that is too moist. With the IR-3000, these problems will no longer be an issue.

Using the IR-3000, you’ll save money throughout the entire production process, while making the best quality product at the same time. With MoistTech, you don’t need to compromise.
