The determination of moisture is a critical factor in manufacturing to maintain product quality. Moisture analysis is applicable across multiple industries where moisture content is highly controlled. Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy is used to identify water content in a wide range of materials. NIR moisture meter is a moisture control and measurement system designed for continuous monitoring of products and uses near infrared reflectance (NIR) technology. This information is used to determine whether the product is ready for use or is in need of further inspection.
