Product Description

With solid-state electronic Regulator. Very easy to operate with an accuracy of 0.2% by direct reading,0.1% by estimation, complete with ‘L’ Bend thermometer with pans cap.5 or 10 or 25 grams.

This is a very reliable and sturdy instrument for an accurate determination of the moisture content of materials that do not undergo a chemical change when exposed to infrared radiation. The instrument is especially useful for the substances which quickly reabsorbs moisture after drying. Observations can be taken quickly and the results obtained are accurate. The instrument can be used for reliable determination of moisture content of agricultural soil, foods, chemicals, plastics, Pharmaceuticals, construction soils, and other similar materials. The instrument consists of a 250-watt infrared lamp, a sensitive torsion balance, and a temp. Control, all housed in a compact cabinet made of Aluminium, having a robust design. The Infra-Red radiation from the lamp is used for heating the sample. The temp. is controlled by the solid-state control. The sensitive torsion balance used magnetic damping to damp the vibrations of the pan. The instrument is directly calibrated in the percentage of moisture between 0 to 100%. The Aluminium pans are cheap and disposable. This helps avoid loss of time which otherwise would be spent each time to clean the pans after the experiment is done. Complete with the instruction manual. It is available in the following Capacities to suit individual requirements.
