Moisture analysers are scientific instruments used to determine the amount of moisture in a given product. They are commonly used for a wide range of food and chemical testing applications to ensure products meet the accepted moisture level.
For example, food products such as crackers, biscuits and bread require a certain level of moisture for taste and texture purposes. Too little moisture will cause the product to disintegrate whilst too much moisture can ehance the growth rate of bacteria. In cosmetic products, skincreams, gels and lotions require specified moisture levels to ensure the product has the right consistency, this can be tested using a moisture analyser.
We stock Adam Equipment's PMB moisture analyser which uses a halogen heating bulb for the loss on drying (LOD) method. In this technique a sample of material is weighed, heated in an oven for an appropriate period, cooled in the dry atmosphere of a desiccator, and then reweighed.
