Pectin Moisture

Money in Moisture Control

To ensure it is sold at the appropriate moisture level for its weight, pectin must maintain accurate moisture during the production process. If pectin is too moist the product quality may suffer; too dry and it may take too much product to reach the desired weight. Are you currently using an instrument to measure pectin moisture? MoistTech can provide the diamond standard in moisture measurement and control.

With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech’s IR-3000 pectin moisture sensor ensures you never sacrifice product quality for lower energy costs.

MoistTech’s IR-3000 pectin moisture sensor uses near infrared (NIR) to display continuous, non-contact, and highly accurate measurement readings. With experience in thousands of food application settings, the IR-3000 is a product you can trust.


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

Efficiency is a top of the line priority for manufacturers and the dryer can drain a lot of that. Measuring the moisture before and after the dryer allows the user to optimize the dryer settings to save time and money. A proper moisture control system will pay for itself with the energy savings from the dryer in less than 30 days. Efficiently controlling the dryer within the facility can drastically change the productivity levels.

The IR-3000 generates accurate, reliable results, even in the most sensitive environments. MoistTech’s I-3000 pectin moisture measurement system offers these benefits:

  • Less Waste & Downtime
  • Better Product Quality
  • Reduction in Start-up Times
  • 100% Product Inspection
  • Lower Cost of Energy

MoistTech is the Ultimate Solution

MoistTech has studied moisture and its applications in manufacturing for over 40 years. That’s why we’re confident our moisture analyzers are a step above the rest. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture testing technology—which is how the IR-3000 came about.

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.
