Accurate moisture measurement with new weight sensor: UniBloc
The moisture content of a variety of samples can be measured using an array of drying modes. The drying status can be seen at-a-glance with the fluctuation range display. Active in a variety of fields (cereals, starch, flour, noodles, brewed products, sea foods and marine products, meat products, spices, sweets, dairy products, dried foods, vegetable oils and other food articles; pharmaceuticals; ores; cokes; glass materials; cement; chemical fertilizers; pulp and paper; cotton; various fabrics and other industrial goods); enabling measurement of samples (cereals, foods, and chemical products) under various conditions (powder, particles, paste, and liquid).
A large sample pan (130mm diameter) enables a large amount of sample to be placed evenly in a thin layer. This results in accurate and fast measurements with minimal drying non-uniformities.
A mid-wave infrared quartz heater provides effective drying without interference for a wide range of samples. In addition to the excellent drying performance, it offers a long operational life of 20,000 to 30,000 hours.
The internal precision weighing balance is engineered with a Shimadzu UniBloc cell. The mechanism provides excellent stability and a long operational life against repeated temperature changes, enabling easy measurements down to 0.001g.
Moisture vaporization monitoring
The moisture vaporization rate is monitored and can be visually seen on a bar graph display. This is useful to know as the measurement nears completion. It updates every 30 seconds.
Various measuring modes
Automatic ending mode
Automatically ends measurement when moisture loss over the previous 30 seconds becomes smaller than specified percentage.
Timed ending mode
Automatically ends measurement when the specified amount of time has elapsed.
Three drying modes besides standard drying mode
Rapid drying mode
First dries with the highest temperature for the specified period, then shifts to the specified temperature, thus shortening measurement time.
Slow drying mode
Mildly heats samples that may solidify in the surface or samples that reduce under high temperature.
Step drying mode
Allows changing drying conditions step by step. This feature is useful when measuring samples that contain a large amount of water (up to 5 steps).
Predictive measuring mode
With preparatory measurements of the sample, the final result is predicted from the drying process. As a result, it saves a fair amount of time during repeated measurements.
The MOC-120H is equipped with a unique auto-taring mechanism, which adjusts the zero drift automatically and ensures high accuracy, even when measuring during an extended period.
Bias correction function
The bias correction function allows adjustment to the data obtained by other measuring methods or other testers.
Large backlit LCD is easily read even under poor lighting conditions.
Data memory and printer output
Shimadzu's unique Windows® Direct function is standard. Measurement data can be easily sent to an application such as Excel®. After import to Excel, data can be processed as one pleases, using familiar functions such as statistical calculations and graph charting. Connection requires only a single RS232C cable. Interface connections and software installations are completely unnecessary.
