Infeed Moisture Control

Proactive Avoidance

Knowing the quality of your wood products as the wood enters your manufacturing process gives the greatest possible control over the quality of your final product. This lowers waste, increases efficiency, increases quality, and reduces down-time. Adding a MoistTech Moisture Sensor in-line with your flight conveyor, log turner, or sharp chain gives you instant access to the quality of goods entering your production line.

As the forestry and lumber industry become more specialized and demands for unique hardwoods increases, wood products and wood resin products depend on the highest quality of raw materials. Use MoistTech’s IR-3000 Moisture Sensor to get the most efficient production line at the start of the process.

Implement Quality Today!

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 to optimize process control, you can expect improved product quality, increased productivity, and decreased production costs.


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
