The MA160 moisture analyzer is designed for quick and reliable determination of the moisture content of liquids, pastes and solids using the thermogravimetric method. The MA160 accommodates a variety of samples and changing requirements by enabling you to use specific methods and efficiently manage all your method parameters, such as in QA laboratories and process control. Typical areas of application for the MA160 include testing of foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, sugar, paper materials and products for environmental protection.

The high-performance, 600-watt AURI heating unit heats the sample evenly, while ensuring homogeneous drying. These heating elements are fast, extremely rugged and durable. Compared with glass heating lamps, such as infrared lamps or halogen heaters, they are especially resistant to dirt and vibration. The functionality of the MA160 can be verified at any time within a mere 5 minutes using its built-in performance testing function with a ReproEasy pad.
