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.


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?

For over 40 years, MoistTech has made it our mission to research moisture and its numerous applications in production to provide manufacturers with the latest, most advanced moisture testing instruments. We’re constantly taking advice and feedback from our industry partners to make our instruments work the best for their (and your) product.

At MoistTech, we understand your desire to cut production costs without compromising quality. The IR-3000 saves you money during the entire production process—while at the same time helping you to create the highest quality chalk. The IR-3000 is energy efficient and low maintenance. It reduces start-up and down times, and decreases product waste.


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.


We offer service and support throughout the world for our moisture measurement sensors and would be happy to connect you with a rep in your area. Contact us today for more information!

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.

Using the IR-3000, you’ll save money throughout the entire production process, while making the best quality product at the same time. With MoistTech, you don’t need to compromise.
