What is a moisture analyzer and how does a moisture analyzer work?
A moisture analyzer is often also called moisture balance or moisture meter. It consists of a weighing unit and a heating unit (infrared technology) and is used to determine the moisture content of a sample with the loss on drying principle. Today many customers use a moisture analyzer because they want to analyze the moisture content using a much faster method. Moisture analyzers are used in many industries such as food, chemical, pharmaceutical and plastics. Moisture content determination in food is of particular importance as the moisture content influences the quality and shelf life of a product.

A Practical Guide to Compare Methods
Moisture content is a key quality parameter in most industries, including food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries. Moisture content determines the quality and the cost of raw materials; it affects product quality (e.g. shelf life) and often influences the financial margin of finished goods. Moisture is also a key parameter for process control in many production processes. For these reasons, monitoring of moisture content is very important. These moisture determinations need to be carried out rapidly and reliably so that any interventions in the production process can be made promptly, to avoid costly interruptions.
