Soybean Processing

Consistency, Quality & Efficiency

Moisture control in soybean processing is critical to product quality and process optimization. MoistTech’s state-of-the-art moisture control sensor provides non-contact accuracy of +/- 0.1% in both online and laboratory units.

An ideal moisture control system accurately detects the moisture levels at different stages of the process, is easily maintained and has the ability to withstand even the harshest of manufacturing conditions.

Optimize Quality Control

Moisture measurement in the processing of soybeans should be measured at numerous stages during the process; before soybeans can be processed, they must be cleaned, dried and cracked. Typical moisture of the dried soybean is 8% and from there the cracked soybean is sent to the dehuller. Soy is compressed between rollers where the shells burst and kernels break up to several parts. Once moved to the air separator the husks are separated and kernels are fed to the extruder for heat and pressure.


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.
