Bentonite 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.

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.

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.


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.
