Moisture and CoatWeight measurement

MoistTech measurement sensors deliver moisture and coatweight from lab to line utilizing near-infrared state-of-the-art technology to increase productivity and profitability by measuring moisture continually throughout the papermaking process.

Moisture management tools such as Moist- Tech’s IR-3000W on-line sensor allow for moisture content to be continually monitored and adjustments made on the fly, maintaining product consistency with 100% inspection.

The sensors provide continuous, reliable readings with no maintenance, a one time calibration with a non-contact, non-drift optical design allowing for immediate process adjustments based on real-time measurements.

Typical moisture accuracy is about ±0.05% with coating accuracy varying from 0.1 to 0.01 micron depending on the coating.
