Paper production industries require a specific type of environment to avoid their products becoming too wet or too dry. If excess moisture is present, both quality and energy use are greatly affected. At MoistTech Corp, we understand the importance of having the right amount of moisture concentration throughout the entire process to provide substantial cost savings. We are the experts for moisture control for a variety of industries including paper and pulp. Keep reading to learn more about our advanced moisture detection and control technology. 

NIR Technology

At MoistTech Corp., we utilize only the best technology for your manufacturing needs. Near-Infrared Technology (NIR) allows for a non-contact solution for accurate moisture content readings. This technology is insensitive to variations like particle size, material height, and color. These sensors only require a one-time calibration to enable personnel to make real-time line adjustments based on measurement readings. This technology, present in our sensors, is best suited for quality control to optimize the manufacturing process, saving your company both time and money. Our IR-3000 sensors can be used throughout the whole paper process —including the initial wet paper pulp stage — measuring a variety of moisture content; this includes water and solvent-based coatings, coat weight thickness and adhesives, and even detecting loss of coatings or spot defects continuously.
