Moisture affects everything we use on a daily basis therefore in many cases it is important to be able to accurately determine the moisture content of samples. Equipped to handle routine and sophisticated measurements, our flagship MB120 moisture analyzer makes the whole process faster, easier, and more efficient. The MB120 allows you to analyze more samples, access saved data, and spend less time prepping and more time putting your results to work.

  • SmartGuide™ automatically analyzes a sample and creates a method, simplifying the method creation process and removes the guesswork from the initial setup.
  • Fast and Efficient Halogen Heating Technology. Halogen heating dries samples efficiently and in a fraction of the time versus a traditional loss on drying measurement with an oven. The MB120 has a full operating temperature range of 40–230 °C, settable in 1-degree increments.
  • Uniform Drying for Precise, Repeatable Results The reflective sample chamber ensures uniform heating of each sample to yield reliable results of 0.01 % readability.
  • Four Drying Profiles Customize heating of specific samples with various drying programs; Standard, Fast, Ramp, and Step.
    • Fast: Quickest possible time to temperature
    • Standard: Minimal overshoot while achieving temperatures quickly
    • Ramp: Controlled ramping to temperatures
    • Step: Set three temperatures at three time intervals
  • Flexible and Configurable Shut-Off Criteria Customize your own test endpoint criteria to automatically end the test once moisture loss is no longer detected. Choose one of the built-in standard criterion or define your own.
  • Internal Method Library Store methods for up to 100 different samples - methods can be easily recalled and transferred to other units for quick setup.
  • Internal Result Storage The MB120 will store 1000 results which can be printed or exported via USB memory stick as a group or individually for further analysis
  • RS232 and USB Ports Quick connections to a printer, PC or flash drive.
