Wax Coating Moisture


Wax coating is often applied to a wide variety of products. Consequently, having the correct amount of wax or the presence of wax is critical during the manufacturing process.

With the help of industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, your professional MoistTech wax coating crew has developed the IR-3000 Wax Coating Sensor which is ideally suited to measure the amount of wax coating that is being applied to any product. As a result, manufacturers improve their product quality, reduce their wax consumption and improve their cost saving.


By installing the IR-3000 Wax Coating Sensor after the coating head, a manufacturer can continuously monitor the process either manually or automatically. The sensor can also interface with the plant wide network system, as well as providing digital reading at the coating station.
