Moisture content is one of the most important factors to consider when producing plastic film. The thickness of the material can fluctuate based on moisture levels, which will produce products that vary in quality. MoistTech Corp understands how crucial consistency is for your business and offers a non-contact solution that provides accurate moisture readings with minimal downtime. Our MoistTech IR3000 series sensor is ideal for use as a film thickness sensor. In this blog, we are explaining how MoistTech Corp moisture sensors can help with moisture measurement in plastic films!

Consistently Ensuring Quality Product

When moisture levels fluctuate, it can cause significant changes to the thickness of plastic film. These inconsistencies mean that your final product will have varying quality depending on when in production they were created. The MoistTech IR3000 uses near-infrared (NIR) technology to accurately measure the moisture levels of your plastic film, offering a solution that meets all quality control factors.
