Digital Moisture Balance

When the time came, in the 1980's,  to bring electronics into the world of moisture measurement, CSC set stringent design criteria for a Digital Moisture Balance. The advantages and flexibility of using electronics were applied to give programmable test completion, output printer capability and interface with computer systems. These operational elements of the instrument had to be applied to a platform defined by the CENCO Moisture Balance.

The CENCO has been a world standard for reliability, ease of use and durability for moisture measurement. The new capabilities of the electronic era were in fact incorporated into an electronic Digital Moisture Balance that met the standards of ruggedness, imperiousness to environment,  simplicity of operation and repeatability of the CENCOdigital moisture balance while blending the flexibility of the electronic digital era.

These design credentials give the CSC Digital Moisture Balance a unique capability to be used in the production environment by no-technical personnel to perform moisture analysis.

It is simple to use, rugged and accurate. Because of this versatility, it is being used in both the laboratory and the production floor.

Some of the specific operating features include:

  • Three operational modes
  • Sample sizes from a few grams to 100 grams
  • Results to +/- 0.2 % moisture
  • Readouts in grams - % moisture - % solids - % dry weight
  • On site calibration checks with the included calibration weight
  • Printer ready
  • Output port for computer connection.

To run a test, the operator presses the tare button, loads the sample, closes the cover and presses the start button. The testing procedure is that simple; operators can be trained in minutes. See how  in a video.

Here is what some Digital Moisture Balance users have to say.

“Of all the features that I like about your moisture balance, the strongest value to us is its repeatability and accuracy from operator to operator. It is the most fool-proof machine that we’ve tried.”

“At this point we have had the CSC for about 6 months. We use it 40 times a day, four days a week and we have had no problems with maintenance of any kind. The easy use and reliability of the CSC takes all the guess work out of the drying process.”

“We are using these balances on a variety of products ranging from edible to industrial application, from liquid to powder form products, in determining moisture and/or solid content with test results as low as 0.5% and high as 61%. In a few words, I would describe your CSC Digital Moisture Balance as: FAST, ACCURATE, EASY.”

“The new CSC Digital Moisture Balance is unquestionably the greatest advance in rapid accurate moisture determination since the introduction of your classic mechanical Cenco in the early 50's.”

“The oven operators like the CSC Digital Balance because there is no need to interpret a vernier scale reading and it holds the final result. I like it because it has eliminated several sources of operator error and does not require frequent adjustments. Furthermore it seems to be able to withstand some rather rough treatment and, like I said, has not had a single problem since start-up.”

“I appreciate the ease of operation - the machine is used in the in-process lab, 24 hours/day by several operators - I experience minimal training problems, and operators are very positive. The digital readout virtually eliminates operator error.”
