Microquad Moisture Sensor
Installations in the food industry on potato chips, cereals and snacks where moisture oil and even protein could all be measured simultaneously were common. The Microquad acceptance in the measurement of moisture in tobacco was proven by Philip Morris who installed over 120 sensors in a single plant in Cabarrus, NC. This technology has now been taken to another level by MoistTech www.moisttech.com who’s management are some of the original Moisture Systems founders. MoistTech’s management team have over 80 years of combined experience in Near Infrared sensor design.
The product line was complimented by the Spectraquad ™ (Thermo Electron) series of sensors after dominating the moisture market for more than 10 years. The patented technique used in the Microquad eliminated any drift in the near infrared sensor incorporating PbS (lead sulphide) detectors. These were known to drift with temperature and in some sensors they still require thermo cooled controlled detectors.
