Tissue Moisture Measurement

Superior Moisture Control

Tissue moisture measurement does not need to make your production line more complicated. Use a system that simplifies your company while also benefiting you, your business, and your employees.

MoistTech’s IR-3000 uses state-of-the-art technology to make your life easier. Rather than adding more duties to your employees and more bulky equipment to your facility, trust the IR-3000. Top-notch engineers invented algorithms, wavelengths, and sensor optical requirements specifically for the IR-3000. These tools combine to create MoistTech’s Near Infrared (NIR) technology, which accurately takes countless measurements per second. These measurements immediately tell the IR-3000 Online Sensor whether the tissue is too wet or too dry.

Control Moisture Levels Properly

Whatever the production stage, you have the ability to pre-set the IR-3000’s tissue moisture measurement rate to coordinate with your production rate. Ethernet connections immediately send general information to the online. The equipment is easy to use and includes operator interface, digital displays, and dependable readings, not to mention that there are no routine re-calibrations. With technology this simple, of course, it immensely benefits your company.

Typical moisture accuracy is about ± 0.05%, with coating accuracy varying from 0.1 to 0.01 micron. Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements. The IR-3000 simplifies your company’s production process and your operators’ duties, creating a better work environment for your company.

What is the Solution?

MoistTech has studied moisture and its applications in manufacturing for over 40 years. That’s why we’re confident our moisture analyzers are a step above the rest. We’re constantly working to develop the latest, most advanced moisture testing technology—which is how the IR-3000 came about.

We’ve combined our decades of experience and knowledge with feedback from our industry partners to create a moisture sensor capable of taking instant, non-contact measurements of moisture, temperature, and other vital levels with the utmost accuracy. When it comes to moisture sensors, the IR-3000 is the most advanced system available.

Installation is as easy as it gets; just mount the sensor a few inches above the plastics you wish to measure, and the technology works its magic. This simple, yet high-tech, equipment soon becomes an indispensable resource for your business.

Assess

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!

Develop

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. 

Support

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.
