Oilseed Crushing

Quality Control Solutions in Oilseed Processing

Oilseed crushing plants can experience immediate benefits by installing and utilizing moisture analyzers in various points of the production process. Near-Infrared moisture sensors from MoistTech provide a non-destructive analytical description of the moisture content of the product. Accurate, timely data provided to the end user allows full control over their process, improve efficiency and save money.

Quality control in the lab, meal analysis and optimizing the oil extraction process are some of the ideal uses for moisture measurement.

Control Moisture Levels Properly

Soybean, canola, peanuts, rapeseed and sunflower all require proper moisture content for processing. An NIR system is the ideal solution to achieve immediate, reliable results to save time and money.

Proper Solutions

With outstanding customer service, we provide the right solutions the first time for your moisture measurement and control needs – don’t waste time or money with various NIR sensors that continuously have calibration and drifiting issues.

MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the production of many forms of oats, oilseed, grains and more. Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.


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.
