IR3000-W Series Moisture Sensors for Wood Products

March 18, 2024

MoistTech Corp., the global leader in moisture measurement and control, highlights the IR3000-W series moisture sensors featuring cutting-edge NIR (Near Infrared) technology for exceptionally accurate and reliable moisture analysis of wood products, including those used in bioenergy production. The amount of moisture in wood products is a critical concern of the forest industry because excess moisture can have a large impact on final product quality, production, and energy efficiency. In addition, the IR3000-W reduces fire and explosion risk, prevents board press explosions, offers precise dryer control, and monitors blending for control of moisture and resin in wood products.

The IR3000-W is particularly relevant for bioenergy production. By providing precise moisture analysis, the sensor helps optimize the moisture content of wood biomass, pellets, and chips used in bioenergy processes. This optimization not only improves the quality of bioenergy products but also enhances energy efficiency. With real-time moisture measurement and control, bioenergy producers can make immediate adjustments to their processes, leading to higher yields and reduced fuel costs.
