Ohaus MB120 Moisture Balance: SmartGuide Feature

A moisture balance (also known as a moisture analyser) is an instrument that measures the moisture content of a sample. This is done by weighing the sample, then heating it to remove moisture and finally weighing the sample again. The final weight is subtracted from the starting weight and the difference in values is the moisture content. While easy to use, the setup and method development can...

How Do I Prepare Samples For A Moisture Balance?

Moisture analysers (also known as moisture balances) are used to check the moisture content of a sample. They are widely used in the food industry and can provide critical information about food quality. In moisture analysis, samples are often processed before they’re heated in order to dry evenly, help prevent burns and get correct measurements. Proper sample preparation ensures consistent r...

ADAM Moisture balances in action - all about moisture balances and how to get started

  What is a moisture analyser? Moisture analysers are sometimes called "moisture balances". They are instruments that determine the moisture content of various types of samples. The drying procedures are highly programmable, as different substances react to different types of drying procedures. Moisture analysers are often connected to computers to observe and analyse the drying process ...

What is the difference between Halogen and Infrared Moisture Balances?

Halogen versus Metal Heating Thermogravimetric moisture analyzers efficiently dry a sample by transferring energy by both radiation (the transmission of energy in the form of waves or particles through a medium—in this case, the sample) and convection (heat transfer by mass motion). In comparison, a conventional drying oven uses mostly convection to dry a sample. Both metal and halogen heating...

Using moisture balances to test food quality

Moisture and weight assessments provide critical information about content, quality and safety in food. Using a moisture balance will increase food safety in a lab by indicating the presence of microbes as well as levels of acid and water. This can give an indication of how fresh the food is and validate sanitation procedures. A moisture balance/analyzer/meter consists of a weighing unit...

Whats the definition of water content?

Water is essential to life; it plays a critical role in the physical and chemical functions of our bodies, the food we eat, and the materials that surround us. In many industries and industrial processes it is important to measure the water content of substances in order to assess quality. This allows us to adjust manufacturing processes and ensure that products and foodstuffs meet the c...

Which moisture balances are glass free for food manufacturing sites?

Moisture balances offer a fast way to analyse the moisture content of food samples, and are ideal for quality control checks during production or before final product release. However some of the balances contain glass parts, which presents a hazard in food manufacturing areas. We've found two moisture balances that do not contain any glass, making them suitable for food production areas....

Sample preparation for Moisture Balances

Moisture balances require the user to understand how to test their particular material, having an idea of the results expected and knowing how to prepare the sample correctly. Depending on your material, not only can water be evaporated but it may be oils, alcohols etc. that are also altered by heat. Moisture balances work by drying samples using heat from halogen lamps mounted above the...

Can I use a moisture balance for suspended solids analysis?

Suspended solids is widely used as an indicator of water purity, particularly in discharge consent. When testing by the full gravimetric method, a balance, oven and desiccator are required to thoroughly dry the isolated solids until a constant weight is found. (For more details on this, see our previous post about the difference between gravimetric testing and other methods.) It may be te...

Moisture Balances and Measuring Techniques

Water is essential to life; it plays a critical role in the physical and chemical functions of our bodies, the food we eat, and the materials that surround us. In many industries it is important—if not critical—to measure the water content of substances in order to assess quality, adjust manufacturing processes, and ensure that products meet regulations and guidelines. The amount of avai...

How should I set up my moisture balance / moisture analyser?

A moisture balance (or moisture analyser) can provide a quick and easy way to determine the moisture present in samples of all types, from food products to cement, grass seed, medical creams, paper or even plastics. They allow automated moisture testing, since the heating and weighing parts of the test are all conducted in the same unit. This means you don't need to spend time moving the sam...
