Routine moisture determination

A moisture analyzer is often also called a moisture balance or moisture meter. Most operate with a heating element and a balance. AQUALAB 3 is different. Put a sample in a cup, slide it into the instrument, and turn the dial. 60 seconds later, get a moisture content measurement with 10 x the precision of a moisture balance. It measures moisture without heating or changing the sample at all.


Designed for precision moisture content measurements in liquid, paste and solid material, AQUALAB 3 optimizes total moisture analysis. It's rapid, reliable, and repeatable for fast reactions and better process control.
