Sartorius MA150-FDA moisture determination balance conforms to FDA requirements when metal panels are in place of glass window panels (MA150 standard version has glass window panels). If you're working in the food processing industry the FDA/ HACCP regulations do not want instrumentation with glass in the production area for food, because if glass breaks it would create a hazard and could fall into the food.
The MA150-FDA is popular in the bakery industry. Pretzels, chips, crackers and cookie dough moisture levels are critical to produce the optimum food product. Pretzel moisture level is a critical component during the various stages of baking. Chips and other snack foods can easily become either too wet or dry impacting the quality of the end product as well as increasing manufacturing costs. The MA150 moisture analyzer can help you measure moisture levels to adjust the baking process to produce the perfect product.
Other competitive moisture analyzer 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 GLASS 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.
Typical applications for this moisture analyzer include regular random sampling and incoming inspection in the food and beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, and building materials industries as well as in environmental monitoring. You name it, the Sartorius MA150-FDA moisture balance will analyze it - wherever you need to obtain fast and reliable moisture analysis results.
