Bentonite Moisture

Are You Measuring Moisture?

Maintaining proper Bentonite moisture levels is an essential component of processing. The MoistTech bentonite moisture sensor is uniquely suited to maintain accuracy in both wet and dry applications, even in moderately dusty conditions.

In chemical terms, sodium bentonite is natural and is most commonly found in clay beds. It is known for its ability to absorb moisture and swells to many times its original size. This makes it a very useful additive for cleaning spills. It also can enhance the clumping properties of cat litter.

With the MoistTech CCS3000, you will have lower energy costs, waste, and downtime, while improving product quality.

Compare Your Current Method


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

Installing a Solution

Installing the CCS3000 moisture sensor in the processing area above the product allows a manufacturer to continuously Bentonite moisture levels either manually or automatically. To accurately measure moisture levels, the sensor should be installed over the conveyor, several inches above the belt.

In extremely dusty conditions, we recommend an Air Purge System to protect the sensor window from dust and debris.

The Best of the Best

With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, we have developed the CCS3000 moisture instrument to measure and maintain desired moisture levels during the production process.

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.


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.
