Imagine you manufacture potato chips and its vitally important to know how much moisture and oil is in the chips. Where would you go?

Adrian Fordham, president of MoistTech in Sarasota, Fla., has got you covered.

MoistTech uses near infrared (NIR) technology, a type of light source, to check the moisture of various products.

“We detect moisture using near infrared technology,” Fordham explains. “The moisture elements [water] gets excited and moves. We measure that excitement or energy.”
