Moisture sensors are utilized for measurements of moisture in all kinds of ceramic applications which is a critical concern during the production process. MoistTech’s near-infrared (NIR) moisture sensor allows manufacturers the ability to adjust moisture levels on real-time information lowering raw material and fuel costs, higher yields, and more uniform products. NIR moisture measurement is a non-contact measurement that offers clear advantages over the traditional methods, most important being ease-of-use, elimination of hazardous chemicals, and increased efficiency of product testing. With NIR analysis, all manual steps of collecting, drying, and accurately weighing samples are eliminated.

Continuous monitoring of moisture content provides proactive avoidance of potential issues caused by out-of-tolerance moisture levels.
