MoistTech moisture sensors are said to provide a quick test of the moisture levels of the manufacturer’s raw ingredients, such as the materials used throughout the food and baking process for quality control.
The MoistTech NIR IR33000F online moisture sensor for food applications sense moisture content throughout the process to provide cost savings in energy and fuel costs, as well as having less product waste.
The sensor offers both online for the continuous readings of NIR moisture measurement and laboratory version NIR moisture sensors can provide spot tests near lines or in quality control labs.
On moisture analysis involving dried products, accuracy can be expected to be 0.1%. On higher moisture applications, accuracy can be expected to be 0.2 and 0.5%.
Fat/oil measurement and protein accuracy are subject to application. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
