What Is A Moisture Balance? A moisture balance, (or sludge scale) is used to measure the amount of hydration in a material. Moisture determination can be used in a variety of fields, such as, chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and petroleum industries as well as environmental laboratories. To measure dryness or hydration, this balance uses halogen bulbs for rapid heating and drying.
Application Library You can store up to 50 different tests, along with setup parameters and statistics, with the MB45. This will reduce the time it takes to process your samples by eliminating the need to set up all parameters every time you start.
Bright Backlit Display This moisture balance has a fancy backlit display to help ya see your weight readings, even in dim lighting. Not only that! This scale's display will also give ya the percent of solids or moisture in your sample, percent regain, statisitics, time, temperature, the weight of your sample, test ID and the drying curve. Wow that's a lot of information!
Liquid Level Indicator This very handy feature helps you quickly and easily get your scale nice and level. All ya have to do is adjust the feet on the bottom of the scale until the spirit bubble is centered within the level indicator. A level moisture balance is important for getting the most accurate readings.
RS232 Data Printing You can hook this moisture analyzer up to a printer using the built in RS232 port. This is gonna make it real easy to keep accurate record of all your experiments.
Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this digital lab scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This sure will come in handy for all those different pans you'll be using.
Time And Temperature You can set the time and temperature ya want to use for drying all your samples. This allows ya to accurately determine hydration levels in all sorts of different materials. You can program how long ya want this moisture analyzer to keep working, (from 1 to 120 minutes in 10 second increments), to automatically shut off, or to keep working until ya turn ot off your self.
