MoistTech Corp’s Role Within the Ceramic Industry

Without accurate moisture testing instruments, quality is depleted and waste occurs. But choosing the right ceramics moisture tester can make all the difference.

MoistTech CorpMoistTech Corp is the original manufacturer of near-infrared (NIR) technology in the industrial moisture industry. NIR spectroscopy is a proven technology that delivers clear results, and MoistTech manufactures a range of online sensors and at-line instruments for moisture measurement and real-time moisture process control for numerous applications. In 2003 MoistTech Corp separated from its long-time partner and relocated its headquarters from California to South Florida with the aim of growing the NIR technology and large industrial applications. 

Moisture content is a critical parameter for ceramic manufacturing and processing, and it is vital to the correct operation of the dryer to within 0.1% content. Ceramic products have many advantages over products constructed from other materials, including wear resistance, high strength, long life, heat resistance, porosity and non-toxicity. However, none of these qualities can be achieved without the proper manufacturing process and the constant supervision and regulation of moisture content. Whether you are producing raw material or processing that raw material into ceramic products, moisture is key to achieving the best-quality end product. 

MoistTech’s system will enhance a company’s overall profits, reduce wasted materials and downtime, and improve overall customer satisfaction. Unlike other instrumentation of this type, MoistTech’s IR3000 moisture sensor can monitor the product even with small gaps in product flow and is unaffected by ambient light without impacting the accuracy. The IR3000 is also ideal for installations on chain conveyors and screw conveyors. The sensor(s) can be situated throughout the process and can be directly connected to the user’s PLC or any laptop. Ethernet 4-20mA is included as well as MoistTech’s high-tech Windows operating software. 

MoistTech has designed a suite of high-tech Windows programs to provide user-friendly interfaces for configuration, datalogging and monitoring of diagnostics. With this, users can perform calibrations, define gauge and measurement parameters, and set up and configure up to 50 different product codes. This MoistTech software package is easy to use and is compatible with any PC platform. 

MoistTech strives to help clients improve their business quality and encourages them to explore options to reduce the moisture in their ceramic products. Whether you are producing raw material or processing that raw material into ceramic products, moisture is key to achieving the best-quality end product.
