Pug Mill Moisture

When it comes to manufacturing using a pug mill—whether its bricks, pottery, ceramics, cement, concrete or asphalt—moisture content is important. Mixing the materials at optimum moisture levels ensures that the highest quality and desired properties are achieved.


If moisture is not properly regulated, quality decreases and product waste occurs. When this happens, costs increase and profits suffer. Accurate moisture testing technology is the key to prevention.

MoistTech’s Solution

For over 40 years, MoistTech has been researching moisture and its application in a wide range of production processes. Our goal over the years has been to create affordable, top-of-the-line moisture technology with all the best capabilities. With that in mind, we never hesitate to seek advice from our industry partners. Their feedback, combined with our extensive research and experience, has led us to develop the MoistTech IR-3000—a moisture sensor to beat all others.


The IR-3000 takes immediate, non-contact readings of moisture in % dry and % wet; allowing you to adjust moisture either automatically or manually according to your needs. We know moisture better than anyone else—but that’s not all we do. The IR-3000 accurately measures temperature, chemical composition, and other levels important to pug mill processing.

Benefits of Pug Mill Moisture Testing

At MoistTech, we understand your company’s need to cut production costs without compromising product quality. With the IR-3000, product quality becomes better than ever before, and you’ll see a decrease in production costs, too. Both start-up and down times are reduced, and product waste due to incorrect moisture content is eliminated.
