Moisture Determination Balances from Intelligent Weighing Technology at Pittcon 2017
14 Feb 2017
Intelligent Weighing Technology will be at Pittcon 2017 from 5th-9th March to provide everything you need to know about moisture determination balances and the comprehensive support they offer for associated methods and consumables.
The loss-on-drying (LOD) technique is a method of accurately measuring the water content of a solid or liquid by weighing the sample before and after drying. One of the most effective ways of doing this is to use a moisture determination balance.
These instruments come with an in-built drying mechanism that permits a sample’s initial weight to be measured and, after closure of a lid, to be measured while the sample is being dried. When the weight is consistent and the test therefore completed the moisture/solid content of the initial sample can be calculated.
Intelligent Weighing Technology supplies a range of moisture determination balances, as well as other high-quality laboratory balances, industrial scales and load cells worldwide. Intelligent Weighing Technology can provide six different moisture balances from the Intelligent-Lab™ and Precisa lines suitable for a number of different applications, from foods and plastics to building materials.
The Intelligent-Lab™ provides models to suit all these different applications. Their IL-50 0.001 g and 0.01 g entry level models are available for cost conscious customers who can’t compromise on accuracy and reliability, while the new IL-TS- 50 is a touch screen version that introduces a new level of simplicity to operation.
Because moisture balance operational costs have been viewed in the past as expensive, Intelligent-Lab introduced their own range of consumables including Pure Sample™ aluminium pans and glass fibre pads that can bring significant savings to the busy laboratory.
The Swiss-made Precisa line sets new standards in the demanding area of high-end moisture analysis. The EM 120-HR provides 0.0001g weight readability, 0.001% moisture measurement, and three heater options. This is combined with sophisticated customising features, like a full graphic user interface, available to make the simple operation even easier to use.
Intelligent Weighing Technology is more than a simple distributor of moisture determination balances. With their own on-site analytical chemist they can test your sample and provide a report that recommends exactly what moisture balance, temperatures and times best answer your needs.
