Balance Information

AMB moisture balances provide a rapid and accurate method for moisture content and dry weight analysis of a wide range of products and materials.  In research work, as well as in manufacturing and quality control applications it is essential to be able to determine moisture content simply and reliably.  Adam AMB infra-red moisture balances do precisely that, providing moisture content data as a percentage of the initial mass or the residual dry mass.  The moisture balance can also be set up to display percentage content.  A suitable sample of the product is placed inside the drying chamber test parameters are entered via the keypad and the analysis is started with a simple press of the key.  Three models to choose from enable you to test up to a 50g, 110g or 310 gram sample that best represents the composite sample you wish to determine the moisture content of your material.

balanceTwo quartz halogen lamps provide constant, even drying of the sample at a temperature pre-selected by the operator.  The advanced software closely monitors the temperature in the drying chamber and maintains it to within 1°C of the chosen setting.  Temperature range: 50°C - 160°C in increments of 1C.  Optional high temperature version enables the moisture balance to operating up to 250 degrees centigrade and useful with samples that have properties making it difficult from braking the water molecule away from the sample.

As the analysis progresses the balance displays the current status, in accordance with the chosen parameters, keeping the operator updated on each stage of the process.  The analysis will automatically terminate either when drying is complete and the dry weight is stable, or after a fixed time specified by the operator.  Settings from 2 - 59 seconds in 1 second increments with a maximum analysis time of 10 hours.  The final analysis result is shown on the digital display.

At the end of the analysis all relevant data concerning initial mass, residual mass, test parameters and results can be printed out via an RS-232 interface or with the optional Adam printer.  When the moisture balance is connected to a PC the optional data acquisition software allows the operator to produce a graph plotting results against time, providing valuable information on the speed of drying and confirmation of dry weight stability.
