Zeolite Moisture

Near-Infrared Moisture Control

Managing zeolite moisture ensures product quality and the long-term marketability of your product. As the technology for industrial desiccants takes minerals like zeolite beyond controlling humidity in macro environments into moisture transfer at a nano scale, it is imperative that zeolite manufacturers can keep up with the demand for zeolite with extremely tight moisture constraints. The best way to manage zeolite moisture is with MoistTech’s IR-3000.

MoistTech’s reputation for measuring and controlling coating thickness, resin content, oil, protein, fat, nicotine, sugar, seasonings, and plastic film thickness, is renown across a wide variety of industries. With the addition of our IR-3000 near infrared (NIR) online moisture detector and software, MoistTech continues to support the mineral production and processing industries. Unsurpassed in performance, stability, reliability, maintainability, and cost of ownership, the IR-3000 is the answer to controlling zeolite moisture.


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


The installation of the IR-3000 couldn’t be easier. Its sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms, and sensor optical requirements are pre-set at the factory and no re-calibration is required. Simply install the IR-3000’s sensor above belt conveyors, in down chutes, or in storage bins. Moisture is measured thousands of times per second, continuously, without handling losses, providing the opportunity to manage zeolite moisture on the production line in real time.

The IR-3000 was specifically built to outperform its competition in even the harshest industrial environments. Whereas the IR-3000’s sensors are sensitive enough to measure moisture with amazing accuracy, the unit is rugged enough to recognize and ignore environmental humidity and temperature, ambient light, inert or foreign objects, dust, and gaps in the flow of material. Simply stated, the IR-3000 is built to measure your defined parameter–mineral moisture. It does so with accuracy and is built to last.
