Phosphate Moisture

The Best of the Best

Processing phosphate into a usable form requires the measurement and control of the moisture content. Phosphate is an abundantly popularly mined element, is primarily used for agricultural purposes. Mined phosphate requires processing in order to separate its elements. The washing process receives the phosphate, screens it, then discharges a phosphate product and a slurry of liberated clay, sand, and phosphate particles. Phosphate moisture can play a large role in the production process and potentially cause issues if not properly monitored.

MoistTech’s 3000 Moisture Sensor allows you an instant, non-contact, continuous moisture measurement of the phosphate manufacturing process. Critical moisture control allows for

  • Product Quality
  • Increased Production Capabilities
  • Process Efficiency
  • Lower Operating Costs
  • Maximum Operating Management


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

Highly Experienced

MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the processing of phosphate. 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 0-10% moisture and up to as much as 90%, subject to application. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.

By installing the sensor at either the entrance or the exit of the washer and or dryer, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process and can control the moisture content either manually or automatically instantly. 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.


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.
