NIR Moisture Technology and How it Works

Near-Infrared technology provides the most accurate, reliable, and repeatable results on the market today. NIR-based technology is different because it does not need to be in contact with the product, is a non-destructive analysis, and is insensitive to most material variations.

Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and imaging are fast and nondestructive analytical techniques that provide chemical and physical information of virtually any matrix. NIR can tell us things about a product in a similar way to visible light. When light hits a product, it will interact in various ways: transmitted light will pass through the product while backscattered light will reflect from the product and light will also be absorbed by the product. Absorption is key in NIR analysis! Save energy costs, reduce scrap, and increase product quality with extremely accurate moisture content measurement from MoistTech.

We lead the industry in high-tech moisture sensors and gauges to measure and control moisture in all phases of production. With offices worldwide, we have one near you to provide exceptional customer service. Our sensors and gauges are the most accurate and reliable in the industry. You get repeatable results that require no maintenance. Everything is set at the factory. No calibration or maintenance is necessary. You get thousands of real-time continuous measurements per second with our top-of-the-line products. Look to MoistTech for instant, non-destructive, non-contact moisture sensors that can be mounted above your production line, before and after dryers or sprayers, in the toughest factory conditions. We provide hand-held and tabletop units as well. Our units can be pre-programmed to ignore the changes in product size, height, and color as well as product line small gaps to keep your line moving. We offer the ability to connect to your computer network for control, management, and analysis. Connections are available with Ethernet or RS232 ports.

For an instant, accurate, repeatable online or offline measurements of moisture, coating thickness, nicotine or oil, the series of NIR sensors from MoistTech cannot be beaten. These sensors are made for non-contact, non-destructive measurements of the greatest accuracy. Use an NIR sensor in the lab or on the factory floor or take it into the field for fast, accurate results every time.

The MoistTech NIR technology is a ratio-based measurement with the prime beam. This eliminates the sensitivity to distance, improves stability, improves accuracy, and provides a no-drift design. Our unique design allows for extremely accurate measurements with far more sensitivity than that of our competitors. This proves us the ability to measure very difficult applications where others cannot.
