Flour Moisture

Why Moisture Content Matters

Keeping flour at the proper moisture level is critical during processing. Flour that is either too wet or too dry can result in an inferior product, reduced profit margin, or both. Thus making flour moisture measurement a crucial step in the manufacturing process.

With 40 years of moisture measurement knowledge, MoistTech can help with your flour processing needs. With the help of our industry partners, we’ve used our knowledge to develop and design the best moisture measurement product in the marketplace. The IR-3000 flour moisture sensor measures moisture levels during processing, resulting in lower operating costs and a higher quality final product.

MoistTech’s IR-3000 flour moisture sensor is designed to measure moisture as the product stabilizes, just prior to packaging. We recommend the moisture testing sensor be mounted several inches above the conveyor so it can continuously monitor moisture levels after processing. The IR-3000 flour moisture sensor is able to continuously monitor product quality without impacting accuracy.

Increased Productivity & Efficiency

MoistTech’s moisture sensors are built to withstand even the most challenging manufacturing conditions. Our meters use near infrared (NIR) and radio frequency (RF) technology to provide accurate, consistent moisture level readings.

With MoistTech’s I-3000 flour moisture measurement system, you’ll get:

  • Less Downtime & Waste
  • 100% Inspection of Products
  • Lower Start-up Times
  • Low Energy Costs
  • Better Product Quality

What is the Solution?

We’ve combined our decades of experience and knowledge with feedback from our industry partners to create a moisture sensor capable of taking instant, non-contact measurements of moisture, temperature, and other vital levels with the utmost accuracy. When it comes to moisture sensors, the IR-3000 is the most advanced system 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.
