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).

Large Pan

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.

Long-life heater

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.

UniBloc sensor

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.

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.
