MoistTech manufactures the diamond standard in moisture measurement and control sensors for both use directly on the production line and also for laboratory use. Providing the best solution in the industry, our near-infrared sensors can detect moisture levels within your product as well as thickness, and coat weight, oil, and fat/protein content with one unit. This allows our equipment to be a staple for a wide range of sectors and disciplines, including adhesives, biomass, chemicals, coatings, food, forest products, minerals, renewable energy, textiles and wood products.

Performance & Stability

Unsurpassed in performance, stability, reliability and cost of ownership, the MoistTech series of moisture analysis sensors can increase both the quality and efficiency of the manufacturing process. Product quality and consistency are forefront with MoistTech in the development of the IR3000 sensor to accurately provide moisture measurements throughout the process, yielding a consistent, quality product from lab to line that immediately reduces downtime, wasted energy and product loss.

Designed to provide accuracy and repeatability, the MoistTech technology is a ratio-based measurement with prime beam; this eliminates sensitivity due to distance, improves stability and accuracy. The technology captures hundreds of detailed, accurate measurements per second. The ability to pre-set the measurement rate to match the production rate is available on the technology and because there are no routine re-calibrations, this technology is low to zero maintenance which makes it an ideal solution for the manufacturing process.


Installing Instant ROI

The sensors are designed to be installed 4-12 inches above the production line so that it can continuously monitor the production process and can be incorporated into multiple environments including:

  • Belt
  • Conveying systems: screw, chute, roller, chain, drag, elevator and pneumatic
  • Chutes, Cyclones, Bins
  • Webs
  • Pipelines

Insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height & color, our moisture sensors provide continuous, reliable readings with zero maintenance and a one-time calibration with a non-drift optical design allowing operational personnel to confidently make immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements. 

            Utilizing NIR Technology, which is a state-of-the-art, fast, non-destructive method of measuring and controlling moisture content, MoistTech is able to deliver multiple benefits to its clients – ranging from product quality monitoring, increased plant efficiency, lower energy costs and less waste, to precise dryer control, lower costs and higher accuracy. Instant ROI, low-to-zero maintenance and process optimization can also all be achieved through a MoistTech solution.
