What's A Moisture Balance? A moisture balance 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 comes with halogen bulbs for rapid heating and drying, but can be used with infrared and metal heaters, (sold separately).
Round Halogen Lamp This moisture balance has a round halogen lamp to get your stuff dried up quickly and evenly.
Five Endpoint Modes With this moisture balance, you have the ability to choose between five different endpoints for your samples. Set the XM to stop with a certain change in weight or percent per second, when the balance reaches a minimum percent, after a specific amount of time has passed, or to stop automatically when the balance senses no more moisture can be removed.
Three Heat Rate Modes You can also choose the ramp mode the XM-60-HR uses to dry your samples. Soft mode slowly increases the temperature until the max heat is reached. Boost mode quickly increases the temperature to 40% over the heat you selected and then drops down to the set temperature. Standard mode increases the heat to your set temperature and keeps it steady until your endpoint is reached.
Bright Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) This moisture balance has a fancy VFD display with bright digits so your weight readings will be nice and clear. Benefits of the VFD compared to LCD are a wider range of viewing angles, brighter digits, better contrast and easy viewing from greater distances.
Easy Calibration You'll have no problem at all calibrating this moisture balance. You'll just need to pick up a 50 gram calibration weight to get the job done.
20 Method Memory You can save up to 20 methods for your samples. You'll be able to save heating temperature, heat rate method and endpoint method for each sample.
RS-232 Output The Intelligent-Lab Precisa XM 60-HR has an RS232 port built right in. This is important if you want to send your weight readings and other data to an external source like a computer or printer.
Liquid Level Indicator & Adjustable Feet This very handy feature will help you quickly and easily get your balance nice and level. A level balance is important for getting the most accurate readings. All you have to do is twist the feet on the bottom of the XM60-HR until the spirit bubble is centered within the level.
Tare Feature The tare button on this moisture balance can be pressed to "zero out" the weight that is on the platform. You can then add more weight and the balance will only display the weights of the items you're adding...this sure is useful.
