MoistTech Corp. is the world leader in Moisture Measurement & Control utilizing Near-Infrared state-of-the-art technology to develop world class sensors. Insensitive to material variations such as particle size and material height/color, the sensors provide continuous, reliable readings with no maintenance, a one-time calibration with a non-contact, non-drift optical design allowing for immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.
Controlling moisture in wood applications is especially important as the weight of wet vs dry material dictates costs most times. The wood chips used in pulp production have natural variations in moisture; the amount of water and bone-dry fiber entering the process will vary. Incoming wood from yard storage can vary largely based on the supplier, weather and season to name a few.
MoistTech Corp. offers the 3000 Series Online Moisture Sensor for all wood applications. Unlike other instrumentation of this type, some of the unique features of the IR3000 is that it can monitor the product even with small gaps in product flow and is unaffected by ambient light without impacting the accuracy. The IR3000 is also ideal for installations on chain conveyors and screw conveyors.
