moisture analyzers

Moisture analysis is a very important process in most industrial processes. While in the past, moisture analysis was done with traditional, manual methods, contemporary moisture analysis techniques rely on the use of a relatively new piece of equipment; a moisture analyzer. So, what are moisture analyzers?

Moisture analyzers are instruments used to find the moisture content of any sample. These analyzers use drying procedures; the mass lost is the mass of water vapor that evaporated. Different samples will react differently to different drying techniques so the drying procedure can be customized. In most cases, the analyzers are also connected to computers to track changes as they take place.

Working of a moisture analyzer

Moisture analyzers use the Loss on Drying (LOD) procedure whereby the decrease in mass after heating a sample to dryness is used as a measure of the moisture content of the sample. Various heating methods are used to heat the sample until no more mass is lost. Weight of the sample before and after the heating are used to determine the amount of moisture it contained. The step by step moisture analysis process is as follows:

  1. The sample is put in a sample pan/ tarred dish.
  2. The lid is closed and the drying process starts.
  3. The weight is being lost as the sample dries, the analysis is being conducted
  4. The procedure stops either when no more weight is lost, or after a set time. The mass lost is then calculated
  5. Often, the data from the analysis is stored in computers.

Modes of drying

There are usually three specific modes of drying used in the moisture analyzers:

1.   Ramp-up

In the ramp-up heating, the temperature will be increased to a fixed temperature in a set period of time.

2.   Single

In this, the analyzer will heat the sample at a constant temperature that will say the same throughout the test.

3.   Step

This is where the moisture analyzer will stay at a fixed set temperature for a set amount of time and then another temperature for a given time and so on.

You can find the right moisture analyzer online from any store. There are many products from which you can select the one that meets your requirements. They each have certain features. The Ohaus mb27 moisture analyzer dscbalances.com for example is known for its sleek design, efficient functionality and large capacity of up to 0.001g which makes it ideal for food, pharmaceutical and agricultural tests. You can find the right moisture analyzer for your purpose.

Why use a moisture analyzer and not an over dryer for my purpose?

There are several reasons why moisture analyzers are ideal for moisture analysis because unlike ovens, they serve many purposes in addition to simply heating and drying. Moisture analyzers do the calculations, weighing and the analysis all in one place. The portability of moisture analyzers also make them more appropriate for use in labs than ovens. There are also many test methods in moisture analyzers, making them suitable for the purpose.
