Diatomaceous Earth

Immediate Process Control

Moisture measurement is critical in all aspects of the mining process; companies are constantly adjusting moisture to maintain the quality of their product. MoistTech developed a control system that continuously monitors moisture content to allow for immediate line adjustments, avoiding waste and down-time.

An ideal moisture control system accurately detects the moisture levels at different stages of the process, is easily maintained and has the ability to withstand even the harshest of manufacturing conditions. TheIR-3000 series of sensors manufactured by MoistTech are specifically designed to be unaffected by ambient light or material variations to be able to provide continuous, repeatable, accurate readings to improve the manufacturing line and product.

Advances in real-time sensing, data collection and data analysis and interpretation helps to determine the characteristics of the materials prior to processing, providing process efficiency and optimization.

Regular measurements of moisture in minerals such as diatomaceous earth remains a necessity for control of drying, thereby reducing treatment costs. Small variations and excess moisture in mixes can result in clumping, affecting quality and consistency; too dry of a product can result in excess dust. Measuring and controlling moisture can reducetransportation costs due to shipping excess water; italso stops products from freezing during shipping andtransportation.

Top of the Line Solutions

The on-line sensors can be installed into any hopper, silo, material line, belt or screw conveyor and the moisture results are displayed onto an external display or PC. Installing a moisture measurement system prevents bad product due to undesirable moisture levels. Fine tuning the setup and process of the manufacturing line allows for instant improvements both in the product and in the efficiency of production.


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.
