The Sartorius MA100C has been discontinued and no longer in production. All information displayed herein is for archival and support purposes only. If you are looking to replace an MA100C for a plastics resin application give us a call at 978-521-7095 and we can have a Sartorius moisture analyzer specialist quote the Sartorius Mark 3 LTE moisture analyzer.

Moisture in plastics processing is a key deciding quality factor and although the Karl Fischer method was the accepted test for determining dryness of materials in the molded plastics industry the MA100C is becoming the new method. Karl Fischer titration is a titration method in analytical chemistry that uses coulometric or volumetric titration to determine trace amounts of water in a sample. Karl Fischer is complicated to use compared to the Sartorius MA100. Also, Karl Fischer uses iodine and requires hazardous waste disposal and other safety issues.

Pre-processing moisture in the material will have a direct effect on the physical properties of the material. Inadequate material drying can compromise material properties and result weaker impact resistance and lower tensile strength. Routinely monitoring the moisture content of the plastics both before and during production will yield higher quality parts.

Plastic molders that are processing ABS, nylon, polycarbonate, polyester, acetyl and other plastic resins need to know the dryness of their materials. Many of the automotive and medical customers are no longer accepting dew point monitoring of the moisture and air temperature coming out the dryer exhaust port as a reliable measure of material dryness. Any molder with a grain of salt knows that although you might purchase pellets in sealed bags stating they are dry and "ready to mold," that a pin hole in that bag will result in your material having a much greater moisture content. The only way to guarantee the material is dry it before molding. The Sartorius MA100C allows you to monitor your dryers effectiveness and know your materials true moisture content. This will insure ideal processing conditions that protect material performance properties and prevent appearance issues such as splay or silver streaks. Yielding the molded plastic parts your customers deserve and demand.

The Sartorius MA100C is very easy to set up, quick to use and provides repeatable moisture content results.

Sartorius MA100C Moisture Analyzer features a Ceramic IR heating element and readability to 0.001% or 0.0001 grams. The advantages of a Ceramic element is that it can rapidly attains the final temperature to ensure a uniform distribution of infrared rays over the entire sample surface, thus eliminating localized burning. Flexible for use in research, development and quality control and designed for years of use in demanding production environments.

The MA100C Moisture Analyzer can be purchase with an optional data printer integrated into the analyzer housing to meet ISO/GLP requirements.

Other Sartorius innovations found in the MA100C include "ASAP" mode: automatic (endpoint) searching/automatic programming for quick determination of the drying parameters and easy programming of a drying routine; Fast and easy control of the accuracy through DIN/ISO-compliant self-testing and self-calibrating capabilities thanks to the built-in calibration weight with reproTEST function; and more.
