MoistTech Corp. is the leader in Moisture & Thickness Measurement for the paper/pulp, converting and film applications. MoistTech is supported by the original manufacturers of Near-Infrared (NIR) technology in the industrial moisture industry manufacturing a range of on-line sensors & at-line instruments for moisture measurement and real-time moisture process control for numerous applications. Insensitive to material variations such as particle size, material height & color, our moisture sensors provide continuous, reliable readings with zero maintenance and a one-time calibration with a non-drift optical design allowing operational personnel to confidently make immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.
Often converting process efficiency is affected by variations in coat weight, inefficient moisture control, thickness and/or temperature issues. MoistTech has been involved in the Converting and Paper Industry for more than 40 years creating tailored customer solutions that address their concerns. The 3000C Series provides continuous, reliable readings and is a one-time calibration, maintenance free, drift free optical design allowing for immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.
The IR3000C Series uses state-of-the-art components allowing installation in the most extreme locations. As result of MoistTech’s advanced digital processing, only the IR3000C Series provides true data for all of your converting applications.
Paper & Board
All paper contains some moisture since it is composed of cellulose fibers. This normal moisture content will generally range between 2% and 10% depending on the type of paper, its past moisture history and the atmospheric conditions to which it is exposed. When subjected to extreme conditions the moisture content of a paper may range from as low as 0.5% to as high as 13%. Many basic properties of paper are greatly affected by its moisture content. Paper dimensions, flatness, conductivity, strength and fold are among the more significant properties influenced by its moisture content. These paper properties can be very critical to the proper performance of paper and therefore, effective control of paper moisture level and moisture uniformity is essential for efficient printing and converting operations.
Textile Coating & Nonwovens
The MoistTech principle of Infrared absorption measures Polymer and Moisture in geotextile lines, diaper components, filter media, household wipes and many other nonwovens. MoistTech manufactures a quality control system tailored for your specific application, for your specific measurement and control needs. Fixed, single-sided sensor are available measuring tandem coatings, basis weight, moisture and thickness.
Film & Converting
Online coating and online converting measurement is a key component in the process. Allow MoistTech to help your measuring basis weight on coated board, thickness of coatings and films, moisture and coating all on one sensor. A complete range of applications can be measured for moisture, thickness and basis weight of clear, pigmented, extruded products. Edge curl and lay flat issues are also a problem in the label and converting industry. Uneven moisture stratification can cause shrinkage or expansion of cellulose fibers. Curled stock is a problem for printing and packaging. Coatings can also get thinner or thicker at the edges. Our fixed position NIR transmitters greatly help to reduce curl or coating issues and improve process control operation
With well over 40 years of moisture analyzer and transmitter experience we understand the savings and potential increase with improved productivity. Therefore, we have an unbeatable promise of customer satisfaction on all our equipment and challenge you to put MoistTech Corp. up against your current method to obtain unsurpassed success.
