Ceramic Powder Moisture

Unbeatable Moisture Control

Accurate moisture levels in ceramic powder represent a critical component during prodiction. It can easily become either too wet or dry and waste manufacturer’s time and money as well as impacting the quality of the end product. Eliminate waste and downtime with proper moisture measurement and control to obatin the best product quality.

Numerous applications and year of experience award MoistTech as being the leader in moisture measurement and control technology.

See immedaite benefits with a proper moisture measurement and control system: 

  • Low Cost & Hugh Accuracy
  • Improved Product Quality Monitoring
  • Immediate ROI with Increased Productivity & Efficiency
  • Lower Energy Costs & Less Waste
  • Reduced Start-up Times
  • Process Optimization
  • 100% Product Inspection
  • NIR Technology
  • Low to Zero Maintenance
  • Fuel Consumption & Water Savings

Optimize Production: Instant ROI

Spray Dryers

Continuous process monitoring in spray dryers is possible by using MoistTech’s sampler or viewing window. Both of these samplers use Pyrex glass – or in corrosive environments, the samplers use a sapphire window.

Our sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory.

  • Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture
  • Typical analog range is 5-15% moisture
  • The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements
  • Unlimited Licensing Included
  • Surface Mount Electronics Available


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

Dryer Control

Efficiency is a top of the line priority for manufacturers and the dryer can drain a lot of that. Measuring the moisture before and after the dryer allows the user to optimize the dryer settings to save time and money. A proper moisture control system will pay for itself with the energy savings from the dryer in less than 30 days. Efficiently controlling the dryer within the facility can drastically change the productivity levels.

What is the Solution?

The IR-3000 ceramic powder moisture sensor is typically mounted several inches above the conveyor so it can continuously monitor the process and can control the moisture content either manually or automatically in the powder.

Generally, dust from the product is not normally a problem, however in extreme dusty environments we recommend the installation of MoistTech’s Air Purge System to prevent the accumulation of material on the sensor’s window.

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. When it comes to moisture sensors, the IR-3000 is the most advanced system available.


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.

Understand the Process

The on-line moisture control system from MoistTech is fast and easy to install on your product lines. Once the sensor is in place, you can use an external display or PC to display real-time moisture levels. Because our NIR technology can store up to 50 calibration readings in a single sensor, it can conveniently be used on many types of applications.

This technology allows our products to measure moisture without direct contact with the product, thus it provides accurate results without creating any waste. And, since the technology uses a simple light source for measurement, our equipment allows for longer use.
