Infeed Moisture Control

Knowing the quality of your wood products as the wood enters your manufacturing process gives the greatest possible control over the quality of your final product. This lowers waste, increases efficiency, increases quality, and reduces down-time. Adding a MoistTech Moisture Sensor in-line with your flight conveyor, log turner, or sharp chain gives you instant access to the quality of goods entering your production line.

As the forestry and lumber industry become more specialized and demands for unique hardwoods increases, wood products and wood resin products depend on the highest quality of raw materials. Use MoistTech’s IR-3000 Moisture Sensor to get the most efficient production line at the start of the process.
