Moisture Measurement & Control

NIR Moisture Sensors for Measurement & Control from Lab to Line

Take Advantage of MoistTech in Australia, New Zealand & Asia!

MoistTech Corp. has quickly become the leader in Moisture Measurement using Near- Infrared (NIR) technology. With state of the art technology, MoistTech is able to monitor Fat/Oil and Coat Weight for the converting and film applications.

Manufacturing a range of on-line sensors & at-line instruments for moisture measurement and real-time moisture process control for numerous applications.Our moisture sensors provide continuous, reliable readings with zero maintenance, which are insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height & colour.

A one-time calibration with a non-drift optical design allows operational personnel to confidently make process adjustments based on real-time measurements. The 3000 series sensors provide continuous reliable readings and is insensitive to material variations. 

Production efficiency improvements due to accurate real-time measurements provide energy savings and potential increased productivity with less material loss. Our sensors use state-of-the-art components allowing installation in the most extreme locations. Subsequent to MoistTech’s advanced digital processing, the 3000 series provides true data regardless of gaps and interruptions of product flow on the belt or screw conveyors.

MoistTech has installations in many types of application such as: harsh applications and environments where other gauges could break down. The MoistTech sensor operates worldwide. We are confident our technology will help you provide a better-quality product, increased production and add money to your bottom line

In addition to the MoistTech management software, we offer several read-out options to display and/or adjust the measurement outputs.

Mineral & Bulk Materials

Testing moisture content throughout the manufacturing process provides.

Manufacturers cost savings in energy, fuel costs, less product waste.

With continuous NIR online moisture testing, manufacturers can monitor moisture levels which control their dryers to optimise the production process with minimum energy requirements.

Human/Snack Foods

Manufactures strive to have the best finished product. The amount of water a product has affects;

Taste, appearance, consistency, stability, shelf life.

Testing the moisture levels of the final product insures manufactures of the highest quality product and consistency.

Animal Foods


Constant monitoring of the moisture in the raw materials and controlling the mixing/blending process ensures consistent quality and a saving is achieved in the production process.



MoistTech’s state-of-the-art sensor is ideally suited to measure;

moisture levels, water and solvent based coatings, coat weight during the paper/converting process.

Improving manufactures product quality, increased productivity and a cost saving.

Wood Products

MoistTech offers the most advanced wood moisture sensors for the non-contact measurement in forest products such as; fiber, sawdust, hog fuel, wood flakes, wood particl. Allowing wood product manufacturers to adjust moisture levels with real-time information, lowering raw material and fuel costs, higher yields, and more consistent products.


Moisture content varies widely in raw materials and at different points in the production process. Non-contact moisture measurement is essential for achieving a quality finished product. By ensuring textiles are neither too wet nor too dry at key points in the production process a consistent quality product is produced with a cost saving achieved through reduced waste and downtime.


What is worse than a wasted effort? Economic loss and decreased productivity. Excess moisture can ruin products such as; hog fuel, waste fibre, wood chips, pellets, saw dust, shavings, and forest waste.

MoistTech’s on-line and at-line monitoring solutions provides an efficient way to measure moisture content.


      Dryer control is the most sensitive process of tobacco.

           Tons of tobacco are processed on an hourly basis where the volume, temperature and input moisture may vary. The MoistTech Model 828 Tobacco Moisture Sensor provides the ability to monitor and control this process to within a tenth of a percent.

MoistTech Ranks #1 Among Customers:

MoistTech strives to provide the best equipment and support in the industry, proudly providing optimal customer solutions for a variety of indsutries. Here is what a few of our customers have to say:

"For the last few years we have integrated the MoistTech Online Sensor into our customer’s scopes with the goal of a fully optimized closed loop control. When integrated with our stacker reclaimed the results are lower operating costs, safer storage and improved product quality. The instant feedback informs our plant personnel of controlled moisture all throughout the entire process."

"MoistTech Corp. came in and supplied an IR3000 moisture gauge with a vortex cooling panel a few months ago, and to our complete satisfaction, the gauge has been running without any problem due to heat and is correlating with lab test results within 0.1%."

"The knowledgeable MoistTech Team provides our organization with outstanding support through the development and implementation process.  We have worked together on a variety of different projects and applications; their experience has enabled our engineering team to properly evaluate and design systems that meet with our customer’s requirements."
