Manages your Sophisticated Tasks

To be able to perform fast and precise analysis on a diverse range of product samples, you need a reliable instrument that gives you maximum flexibility. The MA160 uses the thermogravimetric method to determine the moisture content of liquid, pasty and solid substances – conveniently, reliably and in a minimum of time. It delivers prompt, repeatable results and supports the development of new methods – in three uncomplicated and intuitive steps.

The MA160 manages the generated methods professionally and securely and allows them to be transferred to other instruments.

During a measurement, a status lamp indicates the current measurement status. Additionally, the ergonomic BetterClean design of the MA160 allows efficient and simple cleaning of the device. Using integrated performance testing, the MA160 verifies its functionality at the touch of a button – ensuring permanent and flawless performance.

Technical Specifications

Fully automatic endpoint determination eliminates the cumbersome capture of termination criteria for the MA160. The moisture analyzer monitors the drying process and stops the measurement once the sample weight is constant.

Assistant software guides users to develop new methods for the analysis of different samples. New methods like these are developed and finally released with three easy test cycles. Up to 100 methods can be stored on the MA160.

Two high-performance AURI heating elements with 600 watts of power uniformly heat samples in the MA160. These heating elements are fast, extremely rugged and durable. Compared to glass heating lamps, e.g. infrared lamps or halogen heaters, they are especially resistant to dirt and vibrations.

The functionality of the MA160 can be verified at any time with the performance testing function.
