What is a Moisture Analyzer?

A moisture analyzer is a device used in the measurement of moisture content. Employed in a variety of applications, a moisture analyzer can be used to measure samples of many different substances. In fact, moisture analyzers are used in many different industries, ranging fromfood processing and pharmaceuticals to construction and chemical preparation.





For most people, dealing with a little moisture is no big deal. In fact, it is welcomed in the form of cooling showers, ocean mist, and light spring rain. Moisture in a lab or other controlled environment, however, is often not welcomed at all. In some cases, too much moisture can wreak true havoc in scientific experiments and processes.





Many chemicals and mixtures can be compromised by exposure to too much moisture. Likewise, many products, both organic and synthetic in nature, can experience strength and integrity degradation when too much moisture is present. A moisture analyzer can be used to measure and monitor moisture content, not only in science labs, but also in a range of other applications. Applications that may call for the use of a moisture analyzer range from measuring coffee’s freshness to determining the composition of paint.

To use a moisture analyzer, a sample is usually placed into a small chamber. Inside this chamber, a computer is used to record the weight of the sample. The sample is then heated with a device inside the moisture analyzer that is designed for this purpose.

Often, moisture analyzers are small instruments that are designed to be easy to use. They are manufactured by many different companies, including AdamLab, Ohaus, Denver Instrument, CSC Scientific, and quite a few others. Though so many different companies manufacturemoisture analyzers, their design tends to be very similar. Furthermore, the way in which the moisturizer analyzers operate is typically similar as well.
During the heating process, the moisture analyzer continues to weigh the sample periodically. Once the measurement of the sample becomes constant, the user is alerted and evaporation is completed. Once this process is finished, the moisture analyzer computes the moisturecontent of the sample.
