MoistTech Corp. (, based in Sarasota, FL, utilizes top-of-the-line technology advancements creating a gauge that can be used in harsh applications and environments where other gauges easily break down.

Moisture measurement and control is a critical parameter of many manufacturing processes as it readily effects the outcome of a finished product and allows for reduction in cost, energy, wasted materials, water usage, dust prevention and more. MoistTech’s IR-3000 gauge allows instant, non-contact, continuous measurement throughout your process to ensure a quality finished product. Installed in countless applications, the IR-3000 is insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height and color, providing continuous, reliable readings with zero maintenance and a one-time calibration with a non-drift optical design. Measuring moisture throughout the manufacturing process prevents out of specification products and allows the process to be optimized to maximize its potential.

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

Ideal for chain and screw conveyors, the common the issues with moisture measurement and control occur with blending raw materials, during the combustion process and entering & exiting the dryer. The plant manager’s ability to control the line immediately with adjustments is a huge improvement over old method of time-consuming weighing and drying, wasting valuable time. Quality control is vital on the manufacturing line and the ability to alter certain specifications results in better quality products. Most accuracies with the IR-3000 can be expected to be +/- 0.1% dependent upon the application and can be programmed to read many different materials for ease of use.

A non-contact ‘online’ moisture sensor with hundreds of measurements per second, providing real time accurate measurements can provide a maintenance-free alternative to moisture measurement and control, providing an enhanced system of monitoring your product for accuracies.

MoistTech has operated with the support of business for over 40 years manufacturing the world’s most accurate near-infrared (NIR) industrial moisture measurement gauges and has installed over 50,000 gauges and counting to date.
