A moisture analyzer, also called a moisture balance or moisture meter, is an instrument used to determine the moisture content of the sample. It consists of an infrared weighing and heating unit.

How does humidity analyzer work?

Moisture analyzes perform moisture analysis using the “loss-to-dry” (LOD) method. This is the most common method for moisture analysis.

The sample is weighed using the moisture analyzer balance unit before and after removal of moisture. This is done by continuously recording the weight while heating and drying the sample using a halogen lamp or other infrared radiator.

When the sample no longer loses weight, the difference between the two weights, which is used to calculate the moisture content, is measured. This is also known as the thermogravimetric principle.

The PCE series moisture analyzer is especially suitable for industrial or commercial use. These moisture analyzers determine humidity through a drying process. First the substance is weighed, then it is heated by means of an infrared quartz stove and after weighing the sample again the humidity is calculated. During the drying process the current humidity is indicated on the display.

The PCE-MB Series Moisture Analyzer is an ideal device for accurately determining moisture and dry matter or consistency of liquid and solid elements. Especially in the industrial sector, the humidity analyzer is used to quickly determine the humidity of pastes, glues, mothers, powders, etc., both in production and in quality control.

The quality system of these scales to determine humidity has all the modern characteristics. These devices, in addition to determining humidity, can also be used as precision balances. In addition to these humidity scales, we offer other handheld equipment to determine absolute humidity .

Why is it used for moisture analysis?

Moisture analyzes are particularly important because humidity analysis is needed in different industries. For example, the measurement of moisture content in the food, pharmaceutical, textile and agricultural industries is critical. This is because it influences quality control criteria such as weight, shelf life, price and quality.

For example, high humidity levels will reduce the value of products and reduce shelf life due to the increased potential for microbial activity. Most products will have the best moisture content of the highest quality and there are many laws and regulations in place to determine the right humidity content for certain regulated products. For example, there are national food regulations that define the maximum allowable moisture content of certain food products.

Therefore, humidity analysis is essential to comply with these regulations and to produce a quality product. The best method for moisture analysis is by using humidity analyzer.\

The use of moisture analyzers is almost unlimited. You can quickly and accurately analyze the humidity of the most diverse bulk materials, powdered materials, food, wood pellets or pasta. Below you can see some images with different materials.

If you wish, you can order the additional components of the moisture analyzers: software package (software and data cable) for direct transmission of data to the PC, printer, round fiberglass filters, external control weights to be able to Perform on-site calibration autonomously … You can also calibrate humidity analyzers in a laboratory according to ISO 9000 and request the corresponding certificate (optional / eg when ordering the humidity analyzer or with annual recalibration).

Sartorius  MA37 Moisture Analyzer

I recommended to buy Sartorius  MA37 Moisture Analyzer for quickly and reliably determine the moisture content of liquid, pasty, and solid substances using the thermogravimetric method. The basic model with a compact footprint gives very accurate results. A fully automatic end-point decision eliminates the critical capture of the termination criteria. The moisture analyzer monitors the drying process and stops the measurement once the sample weight remains constant. The built-in weighing system with 1 mg resolution is specifically optimized for use in higher temperature ranges and provides the required measurement accuracy.

If you wish, you can order the additional components of the moisture analyzers: software package (software and data cable) for direct transmission of data to the PC, printer, round fiberglass filters, external control weights to be able to Perform on-site calibration autonomously … You can also calibrate humidity analyzers in a laboratory according to ISO 9000 and request the corresponding certificate (optional / eg when ordering the humidity analyzer or with annual recalibration).
