Sausage & Deli Meat Casing Moisture

Ideal Moisture Content

Having the correct moisture levels in sausage and deli meat casings is essential for proper freshness and the longest possible shelf life. To achieve a top-quality meat product, you need sensitive moisture measurement instruments during sausage processing. Meat casing moisture monitoring is an essential step in production to create a quality end product.

MoistTech moisture sensors can provide a quick reading of the moisture levels of raw sausage and casings, saving plants money by reducing waste.

We understand your need to maintain quality while reducing costs. The IR-3000 moisture sensor is energy efficient, reduces start-up and downtimes, and eliminates product waste. With ongoing moisture measurement, your end product is guaranteed to have improved quality and shelf life.
