The tree and its wood have played an important role in human life and have been used by humans since early Palaeolithic times. Wood is a highly versatile material and remains the preferred choice when it comes to construction, flooring, furniture, shipbuilding, tools and fuel. The durability of wood is often a function of water or moisture content; and companies within the wood product manufacturing industry are continuously working on improving the quality and durability of their engineered wood products, relying heavily on the ability to monitor moisture and other key constituents.

The moisture monitoring needed to ensure the quality, durability and consistency of wood products requires reliable and repeatable technology that provides proven results year after year. For over two decades, Process Sensors Corporation® (PSC) has provided accurate and reliable near infrared (NIR) transmitters to wood manufacturers, enabling better quality control and cost savings. NIR wood moisture sensors from PSC produce robust and repeatable measurements of moisture, along with resins, wax and other parameters with no need for routine maintenance or calibration. Custom-designed enclosures allow PSC’s wood moisture analyzers to be installed in exceptionally harsh environments throughout multiple wood processes.
