Chalk Moisture

Production Control from Moisture Content

Chalk production requires an understanding of raw materials, formulas, and the best production processes. Without the right equipment, however, the end product can be low quality, or even unfit for use. One important aspect of chalk production—whether you’re making sidewalk chalk for kids or pastels for artists—is moisture. Maintaining the proper moisture content throughout the entire production process is key to creating top quality chalk. But keeping moisture at the right levels takes accurate moisture testing instruments.

The IR-3000 outperforms all other chalk moisture analyzers. By taking instant, non-contact measurements of moisture in % dry and % wet, as well as other important levels such as temperature, the IR-3000 accurately monitors chalk during any step of the process you require. It also gives you the ability to regulate moisture levels either automatically or manually.

Calculate Potential ROI


Our equipment never comes into contact with the product, allowing for less waste

zero drift

Our sensors are guaranteed not to drift over time – which saves time and money

closed loop

Create a closed-loop process by tying a moisture sensor into your PLC. Full control over the line!

no recalibrations

We’ve mastered the art of moisture sensors – your unit will never need to be recalibrated for the same product twice!

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.


The IR3000 moisture meter data is utilized alongside the total material weight entering the kiln to transmit information through a 4-20mA output signal (or other optional protocols) to the dryer controller or directly into the process control system. This process allows for adjustments to be made to the flow rate or kiln temperature in order to ensure the production of products that meet specifications.

Understand the Process

Using the IR-3000 drastically cuts production costs. It is energy efficient, low maintenance, and decreases startup and down times. Over dried product causes waste; so does product that is too moist. With the IR-3000, these problems will no longer be an issue.
