Pipe Tobacco Moisture

Why Use a Pipe Tobacco Moisture Meter?

Pipe tobacco is carefully treated and blended in order to create nuances of flavor not found in other tobacco products. Therefore pipe tobacco moisture is a significant aspect of the production process. MoistTech’s state-of-the-art equipment can help optimize production levels and increase efficiency and quality within the facility.

Importance of Moisture Control

Pipe tobacco is richer and bolder than tobacco found in cigars; it is also cut far more coarsely and is moister than other tobacco products. Yet, just like all tobacco products, the moisture of the tobacco must be carefully regulated at every point in the production process, even when it comes to packing.

MoistTech pipe tobacco moisture sensors measure not only moisture, but sugars, nicotine, flavors and temperature during the tobacco production process with a high rate of accuracy.


Unsurpassed in performance, our sensors can accurately measure tobacco moisture within tenths of a percent


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

Dryer Control

Dryer control is the most sensitive area of the tobacco process. Thousands of kilos per hour are processed where volume, temperature and input moisture vary. The MoistTech model 828 tobacco moisture sensor provides the user with the ability to monitor and control this process to within tenths of a percent.

What is the Solution?

Installation of the Model 828 provides manufactures exceptionally accurate and precise tobacco moisture measurement and control protocols. It is able to accurately measure to within 0.1% on many applications – resulting in improved product quality and significant cost savings.


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.
