Pectin Moisture

Pectin Moisture Control – MoistTech IR-3000

Precision in moisture control is essential when it comes to pectin production. Maintaining the correct moisture level throughout the production process is critical. If pectin is too wet, it may impact product quality. Conversely, if it’s too dry, it could require more product to achieve the desired weight. Are you currently using an instrument to measure pectin moisture? MoistTech offers the gold standard in moisture measurement and control.

The IR3000 Pectin Moisture Sensor:

Leveraging 40 years of experience and partnerships within the industry, MoistTech’s IR3000 pectin moisture sensor ensures that you never have to compromise product quality for energy efficiency.

Our IR-3000 pectin moisture sensor employs near-infrared (NIR) technology, delivering continuous, non-contact, and highly accurate moisture measurements. With a proven track record in thousands of food applications, the IR-3000 is your trusted solution.

Optimize Quality Control


Our sensors excel in moisture measurement, offering accuracy within tenths of a percent for most applications.


MoistTech sensors are robust and require minimal maintenance over time.


You can rely on MoistTech’s NIR moisture sensors; they do not drift and do not require frequent recalibration.


A moisture measurement system is essential for production and can often pay for itself in less than 30 days.

Efficiency is Paramount:

Efficiency is a top priority for manufacturers, and the drying process can be a significant energy drain. Measuring moisture before and after the dryer enables users to optimize dryer settings, saving both time and money. A well-implemented moisture control system can pay for itself through energy savings in less than 30 days, leading to drastic improvements in facility productivity.

The IR-3000 generates precise and reliable results, even in sensitive environments. MoistTech’s I-3000 pectin moisture measurement system offers several benefits, including reduced waste, improved product quality, shorter start-up times, 100% product inspection, and lower energy costs.
