Composite Board Moisture

Increase Efficiency and Profits

If you use composite board in your manufacturing processes, then you know how damaging too much moisture can be. Wet composite board is wasted composite board. It is imperative that you control composite board moisture levels. With MoistTech’s IR 3000 Moisture Sensor, you can do just that.

The IR 3000 brings many benefits to your company’s manufacturing processes. From cost savings on raw materials to reduced drying time, you’ll find that with the IR 3000, your company’s profits will rise while your costs decrease significantly. 

With the IR 3000 you will find:

  • Increased employee productivity
  • Decreased product costs
  • Reduction in waste of raw materials
  • Reduced drying times
  • Reduced re-work times

Measure Moisture in Real Time


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


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

Standing Above the Rest

The IR 3000 is a virtually maintenance free moisture sensor that can be installed wherever room allows. It never needs to come into physical contact with your composite board to sense moisture.

Once mounted, it will provide you with real-time measurements that will give you the information you need to make adjustments immediately. This can lead to a great reduction in wasted raw materials.

Even if your raw materials have variations, that isn’t an issue for this sensor. You will still receive accurate readings despite variations.

MoistTech 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.


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.

Understand the Process

Product moisture content is an important factor for the facility to maintain to ensure the end product is top quality and energy usage is kept to a minimum. Here at MoistTech, we have developed a series of high-tech sensors to detect moisture in a variety of materials. We utilize near-infrared (NIR) technology for a non-contact solution to moisture content readings. NIR is insensitive to material variations, such as particle size or color, and they provide an accurate, continuous reading.
