Moisture analysers or moisture balances are used in a range of industries which are affected by regulating criteria on the moisture content of manufactured products.
The process for determining an object’s moisture content begins with taking an initial measurement of its weight and comparing this with an additional measurement after it is heated.
The heating process removes all of the moisture within the product through evaporation which then allows the user to ascertain it’s dry weight.
Heat is applied inside the balance itself, removing the need for the product to be removed and heated externally. This is extremely important as doing so can lead to exposure to contaminants and this can result in weighing inaccuracies.
