Ferrite Powder Moisture

Because only barium ferrites are considered stable to moisture, it is critical that ferrite powder moisture be measured, monitored, and controlled in the industrial environment. When the moisture content of the oxide mixture is reduced prior to the powder being pressed into shape, the drying time and energy costs can be optimized.

MoistTech’s Solution

We developed the IR-3000 near infrared online moisture transmitter for the noncontact measurement of moisture in industrial raw materials. Providing measurements in real time, the IR-3000 allows you to control moisture in ferrite powder during the production process. With more than 40 years of experience in the mineral industry and with the input of our mineral industry partners, MoistTech developed the IR-3000 to be unsurpassed in performance, reliability, ease of maintainability, and cost of ownership.


The IR-3000 is pre-calibrated to measure ferrite powder moisture, making installation simple and quick. Install the unit’s sensor above the powder on a conveyor or in a storage container. The sensor is not affected by ambient temperature, product temperature, or ambient light. Configure your installation for continuous automatic readings or manual instantaneous readings with our advanced software.


With rugged and durable components, the IR-3000 is designed to provide accurate and reliable measurements over the lifetime of the unit. Field data collected over our 40 years of experience in the industry allowed us to develop advanced product-loss software capability, ensuring that environmental variations do not affect true moisture readings. Simply stated, the IR-3000 outperforms the competition in any environment.

Benefits of Testing Ferrite Powder Moisture

Improved product quality, lower energy costs, less product waste, and less downtime are just a few of the reasons that testing ferrite powder moisture would be beneficial to your operation. The moisture information provided by the IR-3000 allows you to adjust production processes to control product moisture in real time.
