Moisture Content Test

Test Summary: Moisture content in plant material is determined via loss of weight by drying.     

 

Methodology:  The MOC63u Moisture Analyzer determines the mass percentage of moisture contained in a sample via loss of weight by drying. The unit consists of a balance, combined with a drying chamber located above the balance, which is heated to a prescribed temperature by a programmed temperature profile. A halogen lamp is the heat source. The sample mass is continuously monitored for water evaporation.
