Nut Moisture

Obtaining continuous, accurate moisture levels in nuts is a critical component of the production process. Without proper attention to moisture, nuts can become either too wet or dry, affecting taste, quality, and profit margins.

With the help of our industry partners and 40 years of knowledge, MoistTech has developed the IR-3000 nut moisture sensor which measures moisture levels during production, thereby helping increase quality and decrease energy costs.

Installation of Nut Moisture Sensor

By installing the IR-3000 prior to packaging and after the product has stabilized, manufacturers can continuously monitor the process and control nut moisture content.  The sensor should be mounted several inches above the belt screw conveyor. The IR-3000 moisture sensor for nuts offers continuously monitoring without impacting accuracy.

Benefits of Moisture Detection in Nuts

  • Reduction of Start-up Times
  • Improvement of Product Quality
  • Low Energy Costs
  • Less Downtime
  • 100% Inspection of Product
  • Less Waste

MoistTech understands the moisture requirements in the production of nuts and other food applications. Our powerful IR-3000 sensor uses near infrared (NIR) and radio frequency (RF) technology to display continuous, non-contact measurement readings. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture.
