Moisture Analysers

Moisture analysers are specialist laboratory instruments for determining moisture content in solid or semi-solid materials. They are used to rapidly heat small food samples with built-in halogen lamps which can then be weighed precisely (usually in grams) using a loss-on-drying technique.

In this technique, a sample of material is weighed, heated in an oven for an appropriate period, cooled in the dry atmosphere of a desiccator, and then re-weighed. If the volatile content of the solid is primarily water, the LOD technique gives a good measure of moisture content.

The manual laboratory method is relatively slow, so automated moisture analysers have been developed that can reduce the time necessary for a test from a couple hours to just a few minutes. These analysers incorporate an electronic balance with a sample tray and surrounding heating element. Under microprocessor control the sample can be heated rapidly and a result computed prior to the completion of the process, based on the moisture loss rate, known as a drying curve.

We supply a range of A&D Moisture Balances and the Adam PMB Moisture Analyser. They all contain halogen lamps - contact us if you need replacement lamps.

Moisture Analysers Help

Q: What is a moisture analyser?

A: A moisture analyser is a device that determines the amount of moisture contained in a product. The weighing system of the moisture analyser possesses all the properties of modern balances. Moisture analysers are sometimes referred to as "moisture balances" or "moisture meters". They employ infrared heating technology to perform a loss-on-drying (LOD) method.

Q: Who uses a moisture analyser?

A: Moisture analysers are used in a variety of industries such as manufacturing plants, food processing and research development labs.
