Enhancing Production Efficiency with MoistTech Corp’s IR3000 Series Moisture Sensors: A Highlight from FEW Expo

In an era where precision and efficiency are paramount in industrial production processes, MoistTech Corp. stands at the forefront with its innovative moisture measurement and control solutions. The upcoming FEW Expo, scheduled from June 10th to 12th, 2024, in Minneapolis, MN, will witness the spotlight on MoistTech’s IR3000 series moisture sensors at booth 1307.

MoistTech Standards

The IR3000 series boasts cutting-edge NIR (Near Infrared) technology, setting a new standard for accuracy and reliability in moisture analysis across a diverse range of products and raw materials. One such application highlighted at the expo is in the production of Dried Distillers Grains (DDG), a byproduct of ethanol production. These grains undergo a drying process to reduce moisture content, crucial for maintaining product quality and ensuring safe storage.

What sets the IR3000 apart is its instant, continuous moisture measurement capability, significantly enhancing quality, productivity, and energy efficiency in DDG production. Unlike traditional methods that require manual sampling and periodic recalibration, the IR3000 offers pre-calibrated accuracy straight from the factory, eliminating drift over time and the need for frequent recalibration.

Unparalleled Results

Furthermore, the IR3000’s accuracy remains unaffected by material variations such as height and color, as well as ambient temperature and lighting conditions, unlike competing technologies. Its advanced software compensates for potential discrepancies, ensuring precise readings even in challenging operational environments.

The benefits extend beyond accuracy and reliability. The IR3000’s non-contact design minimizes contamination and maintenance requirements, facilitating seamless integration into existing production lines without additional hardware or software purchases. This ease of integration translates into uninterrupted operation, minimizing downtime and maximizing productivity.

Optimal Production

In the context of DDG production, maintaining optimal moisture levels is critical for pellet conditioning, where excess moisture can lead to equipment issues. With real-time, continuous moisture measurement provided by the IR3000, operators gain actionable insights, enabling immediate adjustments to the production process, thereby avoiding costly disruptions.

Moreover, the IR3000 eliminates the need for manual sampling and analysis, streamlining operations and delivering real-time data directly to the control system for precise process control. This not only enhances efficiency but also reduces waste, contributing to overall cost savings and sustainability. To learn more about the IR3000 visit
