Flake Board Moisture

Unsurpassed Performance

Everyone in the manufacturing world understands that moisture can be an issue in the manufacturing process. Flakeboard moisture can reduce productivity and increase production costs. Additionally, excess moisture can have a direct impact on the final product. MoistTech’s IR-3000 moisture sensor can take the worry about moisture out of the equation.

MoistTech has spent the last forty years working with industry partners to produce the best moisture sensor on the market. While thousands of companies in the United States and internationally have discovered the benefits of MoistTech’s IR-3000 moisture sensor, we’re not one to sit on our laurels.

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

Monitoring Flake Board Moisture

When moisture levels run too high, raw materials are damaged leading to waste and higher production costs. Downtime of workers also contributes to higher costs. Instead, with the right moisture sensor, we can help you increase productivity and even lower your energy costs.

After a one-time calibration, our sensors — which can be calibrated for any application — are maintenance-free.

What Is the Solution?

Through testing over the years, we have developed a moisture sensor that can provide you with real-time readings. That means your team can make immediate changes when moisture levels spike. The sensor, which can be mounted above your conveyor belt, will send an alert when moisture levels change.

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 perform for you. All of our sensors are pre-calibrated prior to being shipped to create a plug-and-play operation for the end-user.
