Clay Moisture

Increased Profits

The need for precise clay moisture levels has become a critical component during production. Being such a porous material, clay can easily become either too wet or too dry wasting manufacturers time and money. With countless installations and applications along with 40+ years of knowledge, MoistTech has proudly developed the IR-3000 Clay Moisture Sensor which is ideally suited to measure the moisture levels in the clay production process while improving manufactures product quality and lowering their energy costs.

Quickly and effectively measure and control the moisture content immediatly in the process so that you can eliminate issues before they arise.

Control Moisture Levels Now


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

Installation Tips

By installing the MoistTech IR-3000 clay moisture sensor in the processing area, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process and can control the clay moisture content either manually or automatically. To accurately measure the clay moisture levels, the sensor should be installed over the conveyor transporting the clay. The sensor should be mounted several inches above the belt, screw conveyor or any area where the material can be viewed.

In the installations of spray or fluid bed dryer’s, Optical Windows or Sampling Systems can be provided.

It should be noted that dust from the product is not normally a problem. However, in extreme dusty environments we recommend the installation of an air purge system to prevent the accumulation of material on the sensor’s window.

What is the Solution?

MoistTech has studied moisture and its applications in manufacturing for over 40 years. That’s why we’re confident our moisture analyzers are a step above the rest. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture testing technology—which is how the IR-3000 came about.

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.
