Ground Meat Moisture

Obtaining Proper Moisture Control

Explore MoistTech Corp.’s ground meat moisture measurement solutions, dedicated to achieving the perfect moisture balance in ground meat products. Moisture plays a pivotal role in the juiciness and flavor of ground meat, and our page unveils how our advanced techniques ensure consistent moisture levels. Learn how our solutions can help you create ground meat products that delight consumers with their succulence and taste.

Moisture content in ground meat processing can be a determinate to a longer shelf life. Achieving the best final product entails having a precise moisture range and the ability to measure and regulate the content throughout the manufacturing process. Ground meat moisture monitoring is an ideal application for MoistTech’s IR3000-F series sensor.

MoistTech Corp. manufactures a Near-Infrared moisture detection system that allows for line operators to make adjustments based on real time data, improving the product, saving time and money and increasing plant efficiency.

Control Moisture Levels Properly


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

Saving Money

We understand your need to minimize costs without cutting quality. The IR-3000 moisture sensor is energy efficient, reduces start-up and downtimes, and eliminates product waste. By accurately measuring the moisture content of ground fresh meats, your end product will have improved quality and shelf life.

MoistTech Corp. manufactures the diamond standard in moisture measurement sensors, service, and support.

Near-infrared technology is the best solution to accurately measure the moisture levels of multiple applications, offering a solution that meets all quality control factors. Accurately detecting moisture levels frequently throughout the process allows for line adjustments as needed that improve the overall functionality and efficiency of the facility.

The Best of the Best

At MoistTech, we have combined our 40+ years of experience and knowledge into one highly accurate moisture sensor: the IR-3000. This instrument is capable of not only measuring ground meat moisture, but taking instant non-contact measurements of temperature, fat/oil, protein, and more.

The IR-3000 ground meat moisture sensor offers top quality ground meat moisture analysis that doesn’t sacrifice accuracy for its continuous measurement capabilities.


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.


We offer service and support throughout the world for our moisture measurement sensors and would be happy to connect you with a rep in your area. Contact us today for more information!

Understand the Process

Improving the production line with automated moisture control can create a multitude of benefits to the quality of the product and the efficiency of the process. The on-line moisture control system from MoistTech is fast and easy to install on your product lines. Once the sensor is in place, you can use an external display or PC to display real-time moisture levels. Because our NIR technology can store up to 50 calibration readings in a single sensor, it can conveniently be used on many types of applications.
