Preztel Dough

Consistency, Quality & Efficiency

Moisture levels in pretzel dough mixtures can easily be achieved with MoistTech’s state of the art detectors to create a quality product. Dough mixtures can easily become either too wet or dry, directly affecting the end use as well as wasting time and money.

Bakers strive to have the best finished product and bymaintaining the correct moisture level, the quality andconsistency of the product is improved as well aspreventing processing difficulties, decreasing wasteand cutting energy costs with proper dryer control.Taste, appearance, stability, shelf life, dryer control andstart up times are all dependent on moisture control.

Optimize Quality Control

MoistTech’s IR3000 unique features include the ability to monitor the process even with small gaps in product flow without impacting accuracy. The sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory.

Installing a moisture measurement and control 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 in which it is produced.


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

What Benefits Do I Get?

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.

  • Improved Product Quality
  • Lower Waste & Energy Costs
  • Process Optimization
  • Increased Plant Efficiency
  • Dryer Control
  • Reduced Downtime


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.
