Dried Fruit Moisture

Superior Moisture Control

Contributing to shelf life and food safety, the moisture content of [freeze] dried food products ranges from 0.08% – 0.33%

MoistTech Corp.’s solution to dried fruit moisture analysis involves near-infrared technology and unsurpassed service and support. As pioneers in moisture control, we understand that maintaining the right moisture content is crucial for preserving color, flavor, and texture in dried produce. We uncover our specialized methods that ensure your dried fruits and vegetables remain both visually appealing and delectably flavorful. Learn how our solutions can elevate your dried produce offerings to new heights of excellence.

Acquiring precise dried fruit moisture level measurements 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.

closed loop

Create a closed-loop process by tying a moisture sensor into your PLC. Full control over the line!

no recalibrations

We’ve mastered the art of moisture sensors – your unit will never need to be recalibrated for the same product twice!

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.


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.
