Blended Engineered Wood Moisture

An Advanced Technology: Blended Engineered Wood Moisture

The advancement of blended engineered wood products (EWPs) has grown the industry substantially in the past decade. Using blended EWPs allows for lower construction costs. However, to best achieve significant cost savings, the blended engineered wood must be blended correctly at the right moisture levels to meet the various regulatory requirements. These standards revolve around blending the right materials at the specified moisture level. To monitor your blended engineered wood production from start to finish with live feed instant access, use MoistTech’s IR-3000 moisture sensor.

The IR-3000 near-infrared (NIR) online moisture detector and software system was designed to measure the moisture in the most extreme environments. You can avoid over-drying because the sensor provides non-contact measurement, allowing moisture to be controlled in real-time. By using the IR-3000 from MoistTech to optimize process control, you can expect improved product quality, increased productivity, and decreased production costs.
