Flake Board Moisture

Everyone in the manufacturing world understands that moisture can be an issue in the manufacturing process. Flake board moisture can reduce productivity and increase production costs. Additionally, excess moisture can have a direct impact on the final product. MoistTech’s IR-3000 moisture sensor can take the worry about moisture out of the equation.

Unsurpassed Performance

The MoistTech IR-3000’s non-drift optical design permits non-contact continuous process monitoring and control so that process variation can be detected and adjusted in real time. Typical moisture accuracy is about ± 0.05%, with coating accuracy varying from 0.1 to 0.01 micron, depending on the coating type. Typical analog range is 0-10% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.

About MoistTech

MoistTech has spent the last forty years working with industry partners to produce the best moisture sensor on the market. While thousands of companies in the United States and internationally have discovered the benefits of MoistTech’s IR-3000 moisture sensor, we’re not one to sit on our laurels.


Through testing over the years, we have developed a moisture sensor that can provide you with real-time readings. That means your team can make immediate changes when moisture levels spike. The sensor, which can be mounted above your conveyor belt, will send an alert when moisture levels change.

Monitor flake board moisture

When moisture levels run too high, raw materials are damaged leading to waste and higher production costs. Downtime of workers also contributes to higher costs. Instead, with the right moisture sensor, we can help you increase productivity and even lower your energy costs.


After a one-time calibration, our sensors – which can be calibrated for any application – are maintenance free.
