Product Description

The Ohaus ABS Housing MB moisture analyzer rapidly measures the precise moisture content of samples as often required by the pharmaceutical, chemical, and research industries. The analyzer has a backlit LCD that can be protected from spills by the replaceable in-use cover. The analyzer is provided with a pack of 90 mm diameter disposable aluminum sample pans to assist with easy cleaning of the heating chamber during frequent testing. The bidirectional RS-232 port can connect to a printer or computer for manual or automatic data recording.

The compact ABS plastic and die-cast metal housing is tough and durable, to protect the internal weighing cell from environmental influences and impact, and the adjustable rear feet increase measurement accuracy by leveling the analyzer. The draft shield protects the sample pan from dust and airflow, which can cause inaccurate readings. To promote even heating and accurate readings of liquid or sugary samples, the specimen can be poured into or laid under the included fiber discs during analysis.

Balances are measuring instruments used to determine the mass of an object, while scales are used to measure the weight of an object. The measurement results from balances are generally considered to be more precise compared to results from scales. Mechanical balances are the simplest type of balance, and use a lever and slide to indicate the measurement. Conventional balances are commonly used in offices, the jewelry industry, and in kitchens, and display results digitally, but are less precise than analytical balances. Analytical balances measure to a high degree of precision and accuracy (0.0001 g or better), and display results digitally. These balances have a cover with doors to prevent dust and airflow from affecting the measurement. Moisture balances analyze moisture content in a material sample, using infrared or halogen heat sources to dry the sample and then calculate the moisture content from the before- and after-drying weight, and display results digitally, on the balance, or transfer the information for display on a computer.

Ohaus manufactures scales and balances for laboratory, educational, retail, food, and jewelry applications. The company, which was founded in 1914, is headquartered in Parsippany, NJ.
