Tortillas & Tortilla Chip Moisture

Quality Control Solutions

MoistTech provides quality control solutions to assist manufacturers in achieving the highest quality standard from incoming ingredients to the finished goods that are packaged and sent to customers. Used directly on the production line or in the QA Lab, manufacturers can analyze the moisture content of their tortillas, corn or flour and tortilla chips. 

Moisture measurement and control can be incorporated in the flours used to create exceptional tortillas as well as the finished product, ensuring the quality control solutions are maintaining ideal taste, shelf life and more.

MoistTech’s IR-3000 takes instant, accurate, non-contact measurements of not only oil, but also moisture, temperature, fat, sugar, seasonings, protein, and more. Uniformity of spray or oil deposition can be monitored and adjusted either manually or automatically.

Proper Solutions

With outstanding customer service, we provide the right solutions the first time for your moisture measurement and control needs – don’t waste time or money with various NIR sensors that continuously have calibration and drifiting issues.

MoistTech is very experienced with the requirements in the production of tortillas, many forms of flour as well as tortilla/corn chips and snack foods. 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. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.


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.
