Soap Noodles Moisture

Quality Tied to Moisture Content

In order to produce the highest quality soap noodles, maintaining optimal moisture levels is absolutely critical. When moisture becomes out of tolerance during the production process, the quality of your soap becomes inferior and waste occurs which leads to a loss of profits for your company.

To keep moisture at the ideal level, you need the best quality soap noodle moisture analyzer, but choosing the right one is a difficult task with so many options available on the market. Near-Infrared technology allows the most accurate moisture detection of soap noodles and is a non-contact, non-destructive analysis providing hundreds of data pints each second. Accurate, real-time data allows for immediate production line adjustments to produce a top quality product with zero waste.


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

Eliminate Human Error

Producers focus on minimizing waste, reducing costs, increasing product quality and maximizing plant efficiency. Wasted efforts are a drain on resources in additon to wasted product, which creates the need to evaluate and implement lean manufactring practices.

  • Top of the Line in Efficiency and Repeatability
  • Decreases Production Costs
  • Increase Product Quality
  • Reduce Downtime and Start Up Time
  • Eliminate Waste
  • Save on Energy & Dryer Efficiency

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.

MoistTech is the Solution

For over forty years, MoistTech has been studying moisture and its importance in a wide range of production industries. Not only that, but we make it our business to find out directly from our industry partners how we can improve our products to better suit their needs. It’s their feedback, combined with our extensive research and decades of experience, that has lead us to develop the MoistTech IR-3000, a moisture sensor ideal for soap noodle moisture testing.

The IR-3000 has the best capabilities paired with outstanding performance. Not only does it take instant, non-contact measurements of moisture in % dry and % wet, it also takes highly accurate readings of temperature, chemical composition, and other levels vital to soap noodle production. The IR-3000 allows you to adjust moisture either automatically or manually.


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.
