Continous accuracy is key – guaranteed to never drift over time or need to be re-calibrated


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.
