MoistTech Corp., the global leader in moisture measurement and control, highlights the cost-saving benefits of the IR3000 series moisture sensors. Featuring cutting-edge NIR (Near Infrared) technology for exceptionally accurate and reliable moisture analysis of virtually any product or raw material, the instant, continuous moisture measurement significantly enhances quality, productivity, and energy efficiency leading to reduced costs.

Unmatched Accuracy

The MoistTech state-of-the-art near-infrared technology achieves unparalleled accuracy, delivering true, repeatable results year after year with little or no maintenance. Pre-calibrated in the factory with customer samples, the IR3000 is guaranteed to never drift over time or need recalibration. Other technologies necessitate monthly or yearly calibrations that not only incur costs but result in downtime. Calibrations for up to 50 different products or product variations can be stored in each IR3000 sensor.

Moreover, the accuracy of the IR3000 is unaffected by most material variations such as height and color and by ambient temperature and lights, unlike competing technology. To ensure the most accurate moisture reading, MoistTech software automatically compensates for small gaps, inert material, foreign objects, and conveyor surfaces. The IR3000 utilizes cast aluminum enclosures to effectively disperse heat and ensure more accurate readings, in contrast to competing sensors that use polished steel which holds and creates heat.

Instant Return

The IR3000 generates an instant return on investment by enhancing product quality and consistency, while simultaneously boosting productivity through decreased downtime and waste. Dependable moisture measurement and control ensures that production is proactive rather than reactive. Unlike traditional post-production testing methods, which can be time-consuming, even manual at times, the IR3000 ensures precision at every stage. Incorrect moisture levels often necessitate costly product reworks, resulting in unnecessary waste and inflated expenses.

Real-time, continuous moisture measurement enables operational personnel to make crucial, immediate adjustments to the production process. Furthermore, continuous NIR online moisture testing enables precise control of ovens and dryers to optimize the production process, resulting in substantial energy savings. Given the substantial investment in these ovens and dryers and the costs to run them, precise settings can translate into considerable savings for companies. 

Closed Loop Process = Full Control

Additionally, when a moisture measurement system is tied into your process controller, out of spec products can easily be detected and immediately dealt with to ensure additional product is not affected. When issues are identified early, corrections can be made long before an imperfect or contaminated product reaches consumers. 

Ideally, a moisture control system should be able to accurately detect moisture in raw materials, preferably at different stages of the manufacturing process, be easy to maintain, and tough enough to withstand the harsh, abrasive nature of the raw materials and the mixer environment.

Complete Solution

The IR3000 sensor is a complete solution that is easy to install and integrate into existing production lines and does not require the purchase of any additional hardware or software. Its non-contact design minimizes contamination and maintenance, allowing for continuous operation without interfering with manufacturing processes. The IR3000 offers remote control capabilities, eliminating the necessity for on-site personnel.
