MoistTech IR3000-W Series Sensors

MoistTech Corp.’s IR3000-W series moisture sensors feature cutting-edge NIR (near-infrared) technology achieves unparalleled accuracy, delivering true, repeatable results year after year with little or no maintenance—just accurate and reliable moisture analysis of wood products, including those used in bioenergy production. The amount of moisture in wood products is a critical concern of the forest industry because excess moisture can have a large impact on final product quality, production, and energy efficiency. In addition, the IR3000-W reduces fire and explosion risk, prevents press explosions, offers precise dryer control, and monitors blending for control of moisture and resin in wood products.

By providing precise moisture analysis, the sensor helps optimize the moisture content of wood biomass, pellets, and chips used in bioenergy processes. This optimization not only improves the quality of bioenergy products but also enhances energy efficiency. With real-time moisture measurement and control, bioenergy producers can make immediate adjustments to their processes, leading to higher yields.

Pre-calibrated in the factory with customer samples, the IR3000-W is guaranteed to never drift over time or need recalibration. Calibrations for up to 50 different products or product variations can be stored in each IR3000-W sensor.

Moreover, the accuracy of the IR3000-W is unaffected by most material variations such as height and color and by ambient temperature and lights. To ensure the most accurate moisture reading, MoistTech software automatically compensates for small gaps, inert material, foreign objects, and conveyor surfaces. The IR3000-W utilizes cast aluminum enclosures to effectively disperse heat and ensure more accurate readings, in contrast to competing sensors that use polished steel which holds and creates heat.

The IR3000-W sensor is a complete solution that is easy to install and integrate into existing production lines and does not require the purchase of any additional hardware or software. Its non-contact design minimizes contamination and maintenance, allowing for continuous operation without interfering with manufacturing processes.
