Dried Yeast Moisture
Properly Measuring Moisture Content
Dried yeast, also known as Baker’s yeast, is a critical component in countless bread products. Anyone who has baked bread knows that dried yeast is a highly sensitive organism and must be treated with the utmost attention. Thus making dry yeast moisture a crucial step in the production process.
If the moisture level of yeast is too high, the yeast growth hasn’t fully “deactivated” which can result in product instability and possible contamination. If the product is too dry, the yeast may not be effective and its yield too low.
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
COST OF OWNERSHIP
A moisture measurement system is essential for the production process and in some cases will pay for itself in less than 30 days
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.
Why Choose MoistTech?
With dried yeast, it’s essential to maintain continuous product monitoring on the fluid bed dryer. When proper moisture levels are maintained, you’ll minimize the risk for a poor quality final product, as well as waste and downtime.
MoistTech’s powerful IR-3000 dried yeast moisture sensor stands above the competition for its continuous, non-contact, highly accurate measurement readings.
The IR-3000 produces the most precise, constant results, even in the most sensitive environments. At MoistTech, with the help of our industry partners we have over 40 years of experience in testing and regulating moisture levels in dried yeast and other food products. With the IR-3000, you can expect to reduce start-up and downtimes, maintain energy efficiency, and increase profit margins.
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.
