Sartorius MA150 moisture analyzer delivers moisture content results through loss on drying. Reliably determine moisture measurement results in minutes vs. hours over the oven method. Improve process effciency using a moisture balance while making adjustments and optimizing the quality of your product by knowing the moisture content.
Moisture content plays a decisive role in the manufacturing and/or production of food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, building products, to name just a few. The amount of moisture will dictate the shelf life and stability of many products. In today's fast pace production environment analytical methods with shorter measuring times are needed verses using the old fashion oven drying method. The Sartorius MA150 can analyze the loss of mass when a sample is heated otherwise called thermogravimetric analysis.
For more than 30 years, Sartorius has been a leading supplier of equipment for rapid gravimetric moisture analysis. Sartorius has 145 years experience building balances. Throughout the world you'll find Sartorius moisture analyzers in sewage treatment plants to determine percent solids for primary, secondary and tertiary processes.
The new Sartorius MA150 replaces the powerful and rugged workhorse model MA45. Thanks to a highly efficient ceramic heater (infrared radiator), the MA150 can give you accurate, ultrafast results for all your samples in minutes, not hours (depending on the sample being analyzed). The MA 150 moisture analyzer from Sartorius is the ideal solution, designed to make short work of routine moisture analysis for process quality control, research and development applications.
The secret to Sartorius success is in the heating source. Other competitive models like the A&D MX-50/MF-50 moisture balance, the Mettler Toledo HB43, Ohaus MB35/MB45 moisture analyzer & other several other brands use a halogen lamp as the heating source. Not the Sartorius MA150, the heating source is a Ceramic IR heating element. Ceramic offers stable, consistent and fast heating because it distributes heat rays very evenly over the entire sample surface. Ceramic elements also last longer, while halogen bulbs burn out and need to be replaced.
Now more than ever, accurate analysis of moisture contents is critical and Sartorius offers a full line of analyzers to meet just about every need.
