Historically, moisture was measured by weighing a sample, drying it in an oven for several hours then weighing it again.

Then technology brought automatic weighing, direct reading moisture balances that spawned the current range of Loss-On-Drying (LOD) instruments.

There are three units featured on this page:

  1. CSC Digital Moisture Balance

    Digital Moisture Balance

The next instrument, the CSC Digital Moisture Balance, provides adjustments that permit optimization of the repeatability - test time compromise.

The CSC Digital Moisture Balance is built to withstand harsh conditions on the production floor. Using electronics to weight the samples and to read and transmit results gives the capability to analyze the moisture drying curve from printer tapes or directly on a computer. This can be used to adjust test parameters for optimum moisture test repeatability/time set up.

Running a moisture analysis with the CSC Digital Moisture Balance is a simple, three-step operation (Tare, Load, and Start). Production people can become competent at moisture testing in minutes.

Moisture analysis can be made from 0% to 100% moisture at +/- 0.2% for five gram samples. (Order Online)
