Recycled Paper Moisture


Recycling paper is a long, complex process. From turning the paper into pulp, or slurry, to bleaching and de-inking, creating quality paper out of recycled material means maintaining proper levels of moisture, temperature, and chemicals.

To regulate these levels, you need an accurate recycled paper moisture analyzer with a range of capabilities. But with countless moisture sensors on the market, how do you choose the one that works best?

MoistTech’s Solution

MoistTech has been studying moisture and its application in production processes such as paper recycling for over forty years. Our research, combined with feedback from our industry partners, is what makes our instruments the latest and best moisture testing technology on the market. Now we’ve developed a moisture sensor ideally suited for paper recycling: the MoistTech IR-3000.

The IR-3000 not only takes highly accurate readings of moisture (in % dry and % wet), but also measures temperature, chemical composition, and water based coatings. You won’t find another moisture sensor with all the capabilities of the IR-3000.

Benefits of Recycled Paper Moisture Testing

Using the IR-3000 reduces start-up and down times, while drastically decreasing product waste. Because the IR-3000 is designed for efficiency, your production costs decrease and the quality of your recycled paper increases.
