Industries that could use Moisture Control

MoistTech Corp.® represents the diamond standard in robust, reliable, and dependable near-infrared (NIR) moisture measurement and control technology.

Manufacturing a range of on-line sensors & at-line instruments for moisture measurement and real-time process control for numerous applications, the technology also has the ability to monitor thickness, coat weight, oil, and fat/protein content along with other elements that absorb NIR light. Consider what you spend, or lose, on wasted product, lack of efficiency, consistency of product, environmental costs and quality control. The MoistTech Corp. system solves many of the common problems found on the manufacturing line. MoistTech understands the savings that come from accurate, controlled moisture in the manufacturing process. Our online moisture detection systems are rugged, accurate, and provide top of the line results. With the ability to measure and control moisture content in almost any material, our meters send out digital or analog signals to allow for software control of your manufacturing process. We can communicate from the sensor to your laptop, PC, or network through RS232 or Ethernet TCP/IP protocols. Insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height & color, MoistTech developed the IR-3000 series of online sensors for instant, non-contact measurement of many products and raw materials in the harshest manufacturing environments. Continually monitoring and controlling moisture levels allows operating personnel to confidently make immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.

The sensors require a one-time calibration and are manufactured with a non-drift optical design to provide continuous, reliable readings with zero maintenance. Production efficiency improvements due to accurate real-time measurements provide both energy savings and potential increased productivity with lower material losses. Our moisture detectors use state-of-the-art components allowing installation in the most extreme locations.

Common installation locations include:

  • Belt, Screw, Drag & Enclosed Conveyors
  • Chutes, Cyclones & Bins
  • Before / After Dryer
  • Webs
  • Pipeline or Pneumatic Conveying
  • Fluid Bed Dryers
  • Storage Bins
