MoistTech will be attending food processing expo 2014, in Sacramento CA.
 Booth #1106
Controlling the amount of moisture in bakery dough is an important consideration for bakers. Too little or too much moisture impacts production and quality. By installing MoistTech’s IR3000 NIR Moisture Sensor after the dough mixer or after the dough has been formed, manufactures can continuously monitor the moisture content to make adjustments as needed. Bakers strive to have the best finish products. Maintaining the correct moisture content in dough can improve quality and consistency, as well as prevent processing difficulties, decrease waste and cutting energy costs during the drying and baking process.

Moisture levels in bakery dough can also affect the taste, appearance, stability and shelf life. Additionally, variation and excess moisture in dough can result in discoloration in the final product , burning and out of specification of product. Testing moisture during this time will allow adjustments to be made so that manufacturers have the highest quality. Whether finished products have too much or too little moisture is a main concern for bakers as some food items are sold by weight, which reduces costs. Moisture can also lower the fat content and reduce carbohydrates. However, having too much moisture can make the item taste stale of even worse contributing to bacteria/mold growth.

Measuring moisture content throughout the process also provides bakers cost savings in energy and fuel costs, as well as having less product waste. Any excessive water that is added must be evaporated in the oven to produce products within a specified moisture range, which results in longer bake times. With continuous NIR online moisture testing, manufacturers can monitor moisture levels which they in-turn, can precisely control ovens to optimize the production process with minimum energy requirements as well as preventing over cooking.

With the help of industry partners and 30 years of knowledge, MoistTech has thousands of installations worldwide on bakery dough. We offer both online for the continuous readings of NIR moisture measurement and laboratory NIR moisture sensors for spot tests near lines or in your quality control labs. Offering a wide variety of instruments including sanitary food grade models that employ a food grade polymeric lens or sapphire window which are designed to meet strict hygiene, regulations and safety requirements of food manufacturing environments. Additionally, conveyor product gaps, random impurities and burnt product have no effect on the accuracy of the measurement readings.

WP Europe 2013
MoistTech had a great turn out at Word Tobacco Europe 2013
Thank you everyone who stopped by our booth to see the most advance tobacco moisture sensors.
The Model 828 tobacco moisture sensor is considered by many as being the flag ship of MoistTech’s IR Series of sensors. It has resulted in unmatched performance for tobacco moisture measurement and control within all levels of the tobacco industry.
Our long standing relationship with most tobacco processors confirms that our knowledge and experience is second to none. MoistTech’s professional staff continues to develop products for the tobacco industry showing our commitment to the industry.
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.
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.
