Grains Moisture

The moisture content of grain must be kept at the perfect level in order to yield the highest economic return. Too moist, and the grain will spoil in storage; too dry, and the reduced weight will lessen its value, as grain is sold by weight. The key is to get the most moisture, while still staying under the suggested moisture levels.


Each grain type is different, so a working knowledge of the moisture levels that are acceptable for each is necessary. Also needed are the proper instruments for measuring the moisture level with accuracy, so moisture can be regulated during each step—from processing to storing.

MoistTech Capabilities

For 40 years, MoistTech has brought knowledge and experience to moisture testing technology. The MoistTech IR-3000 is the result of that expertise – a moisture sensor capable of taking instant, non-contact, highly accurate measurements in any and all environments.


And we’re not just about moisture. The IR-3000 measures temperature, fat / oil, protein, and more, with the reliability you need to produce the best quality grains.

Benefits of Grain Moisture Control

The IR-3000 helps grain producers cut costs and increase end product quality. Compared with other grain moisture sensors, our carefully designed instrument is more energy efficient, and reduces start-up and downtimes. It eliminates grain waste due to excessive moisture content, as well as profit loss due to an overly-dry product.
