Moisture analysis of virtually any product or raw material

IR3000-F enhances product quality and consistency, while simultaneously boosting productivity through decreased downtime and waste.

MoistTech Corp announces the IR3000-F series moisture sensors featuring NIR (Near Infrared) technology for exceptionally accurate and reliable moisture analysis of virtually any product or raw material. The instant, continuous moisture measurement significantly enhances quality, productivity, and energy efficiency in the food industry.

The MoistTech near-infrared technology delivers true, repeatable results year after year with little or no maintenance. Pre-calibrated in the factory with customer samples, the IR3000-F is guaranteed to never drift over time or need recalibration. Other technologies necessitate monthly or yearly calibrations that incur costs and result in downtime. Calibrations for up to 50 different products or product variations can be stored in each IR3000-F sensor.

Moreover, the accuracy of the IR3000-F is unaffected by most material variations such as height and colour and by ambient temperature and lights, unlike competing technology. To ensure the most accurate moisture reading, MoistTech software automatically compensates for small gaps, inert material. foreign objects, and conveyor surfaces. The IR3000-F utilises cast aluminium enclosures to effectively disperse heat and ensure more accurate readings, in contrast to competing sensors that use polished steel which holds and creates heat.

The IR3000-F enhances product quality and consistency, while simultaneously boosting productivity through decreased downtime and waste. Dependable moisture measurement and control ensure that products contain the exact amount of moisture for ideal taste, appearance, and shelf life.

Real-time, continuous moisture measurement enables operational personnel to make crucial, immediate adjustments to the production process. Furthermore, continuous NIR online moisture testing enables precise control of ovens, dryers, roasters, and fryers to optimise the production process, resulting in substantial energy savings. 

The IR3000-F sensor is a complete solution that is easy to install and integrate into existing production lines and does not require the purchase of any additional hardware or software. Its non-contact design minimises contamination and maintenance, allowing for continuous operation without interfering with manufacturing processes.

A very wide variety of food products benefit from IR3000-F technology, including baked goods, cereals, dried fruits, snacks, meats and cheeses, spices, gelatine, grains, nuts, chocolate, sugar, tea, and coffee.
