Saw Dust Moisture


Measuring product moisture in the production of saw dust plays an important overall role in the process. Too high or too low moisture can affect overall quality, which can sometimes stop the process or result in low-quality production and distribution.

Ongoing and accurate saw dust moisture measuring allows for quick correction if there are problems, and helps ensure high-quality production throughout the process.

At MoistTech, we are dedicated to helping our customers produce the highest quality saw dust with our state-of-the-art sensor systems.




To install our saw dust moisture sensor, simply mount it a few inches above the conveyor belt. This allows continuous process monitoring and controlled moisture either manually or automatically throughout the process.

Our IR-3000 is singular because it is able to give accurate results even with small gaps in product flow. We have also used sapphire optics to develop sample systems and optical windows. This provides real-time process measurement. For more details, see our sampling technology section.

The MoistTech staff is experienced with saw dust moisture sensing requirements in the manufacturing process. We pre-set sensor calibrations, measurement wavelengths, algorithms and sensor optical requirements at our factory. Typical accuracy is about ±0.1% moisture. Typical analog range is 0-20% moisture. The outputs can be adjusted to optimize PLC or recording requirements.
