Processing line equipment is designed to help control the environment by providing automated functions to improve the facilities overall quality, production, efficiency and decrease human errors. Manufacturing a range of on-line sensors and at-line instruments for moisture measurement and real-time process control for numerous applications, MoistTech supplies solutions that can deliver instant, non-contact moisture analysis of manufactured goods to ensure the accuracy and quality of the final product.

Improved Product Quality

            Moisture control becomes a crucial aspect of the production line as numerous products can becomes affected quickly, creating waste, downtime and other issues that stop the efficiency of the facility. Incorporating a system directly into the line or in the laboratory allows for an immediate adjustment process when needed, creates constant control of the products, and allows the data to tie directly into PLC.

A common problem seen with moisture sensing technology is the need for re-calibrations due to drifting issues. Not anymore – MoistTech’s series of near-infrared moisture sensors eliminates the issues of drifting, causing the sensor to read and report incorrect data and creating downtime to address the issues. The diamond standard sensors are designed to incorporate small changes in the production line without skewing the measurements, such as height and color variations and particle size.


Perfecting the Process

MoistTech’s process begins with calibrating the sensor to the exact specifications of the customers product by running numerous tests. Once the sensor has been introduced to the customers product and process, it has the ability to maintain the data and calibration without needing any monthly or annual maintenance. Utilizing a moisture control system that can be relied upon to maintain it accuracy and repeatability instantly increases the production efficiency of the plant by allowing the automation of the process to be monitored 100%.

Improve Your Productivity

Improving the manufacturing process allows for a multitude of benefits throughout the facility that can have a variety of positive impacts. The on-line moisture control system from MoistTech is fast and easy to install on your product lines. Once the sensor is in place, you can use an external display or PC to display real-time moisture levels. Because our NIR technology can store up to 50 calibration readings in a single sensor, it can conveniently be used on a multitude of applications.

Moisture control in plant design is a crucial implementation in proactive avoidance of quality control issues. Moisture sensors are recommended to be installed in several locations throughout the process to achieve ultimate efficiency including incoming material lines, before and after the dryer, and before any finishing belts. With continuous improvement in mind, maintaining the ability to co-exist with sophisticated facilities and flawlessly tie into their systems to create a consistently managed process is essential for both MoistTech and the customer.
