Food Processing

Moisture & Oil Measurement with Quality

Moisture content control requirments in food processing dictate many of the product outcomes: taste, consistency, quality and shelf life. Utilizing an experienced moisture management system will allow the user to have full control over the manufacturing process to create a reduction in waste, downtime and improve quality. 

Accurately detecting the moisture and oil levels of the food product during the various stages of production allows the end user full control over quality. Easily installed and maintained, the sensor has the ability to withstand the harshest of manufacturing conditions. The IR-3000 series of MoistTech sensors are dsigned to be unaffected by ambient light or material variations to be able to provide continuous, repeatable, accurate readings to improve the manufacturing line and product. 

Get Accurate Results Now

Moisture and oil levels can quickly become a concern for food manufacturers as some food items are sold by weight, so their moisture content effects the proce and taste. MoistTech’s sensors can measure both moisture and oil in one setup to provide the most accurate results allowing line personnel to make immediate adjustments to reduce loss. 


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

MoistTech offers multiple sensor options to suit your specific needs including the standard IR-3000 series and food-grade series that is nickel plated to specifically allow for food environments where frequent wash downs occur and can protect from corrosion and abrasion.

The on-line sensors can be installed into any hopper, silo, material line, belt or screw conveyor and the moisture results are displayed onto an external display or PC. Installing a moisture measurement system prevents bad product due to undesirable moisture levels. Fine tuning the setup and process of the manufacturing line allows for instant improvements both in the product and in the efficiency of production.


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.
