Moisture Analyzer OHAUS MB25, A Moisture Analyzer, which is also referred to as a moisture balance or moisture meter, is an instrument used for the determination of the moisture content of a sample. It consists of an infrared weighing and heating unit.
A Moisture Analyzer performs moisture analysis by using the ‘loss on drying’ (LOD) method. This is the most common method for moisture analysis.
The sample is weighed using the Moisture Analyzer balance unit before and after the removal of moisture. This is done by the continuous recording of the weight while the sample is heated and dried using a halogen lamp or other infrared radiator.
When the sample no longer loses weight, the difference between the two weights is measured, which is used to calculate the moisture content.
