Sinter Mix Moisture

Properly Managing Moisture Content

Maintaining the correct moisture content during sintering is critical to producing quality sinter mix. If the raw mix does not contain enough moisture, then ball formation will not take place, while if it is too high, slurry forms, reducing the mix’s permeability. In order to achieve the optimum moisture level, accurate moisture testing needs to take place. For this, you need a sinter mix moisture analyzer with the best capabilities—but with so many options on the market, how do you choose the one that’s best for you?

The CCS3000 measures moisture instantly using a highly effective, non-contact method which gives you accurate readings in % dry and % wet. And while we are all about moisture, that isn’t all our instruments are capable of testing. The IR-3000 measures temperature, chemical composition, and other levels vital to sinter mix production.

Optimize Production: Instant ROI


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

MoistTech’s Ultimate Solution

At MoistTech, we understand your company’s need to cut costs without compromising product quality. The CCS3000 boosts the quality of your sinter mix while reducing start-up and down times and eliminating waste due to incorrect moisture levels.

For over 40 years, MoistTech has been studying moisture and its application in a wide range of production processes. We make it our mission to help companies get exactly what they need to produce the best quality products they can—which is why we’re always talking with our industry partners to find out how we can better serve their needs. It’s this feedback—combined with our decades of research and experience—that has lead us to develop a moisture sensor to beat all others: the MoistTech CCS3000.


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!
