Shimadzu - Electronic Moisture Balance - MOC-120H

Accurate moisture measurement with new weight sensor: UniBloc

The moisture content of a variety of samples can be measured using an array of drying modes. The drying status can be seen at-a-glance with the fluctuation range display. Active in a variety of fields (cereals, starch, flour, noodles, brewed products, sea foods and marine products, meat products, spices, sweets, dairy products, dried foods, vegetable oils and other food articles; pharmaceuticals; ores; cokes; glass materials; cement; chemical fertilizers; pulp and paper; cotton; various fabrics and other industrial goods); enabling measurement of samples (cereals, foods, and chemical products) under various conditions (powder, particles, paste, and liquid).

Key features

  • A large sample pan (130mm diameter) enables a large amount of sample to be placed evenly in a thin layer
  • A mid-wave infrared quartz heater provides effective drying without interference for a wide range of samples
  • The internal precision weighing balance is engineered with a Shimadzu UniBloc cell
  • Auto-taring mechanism
  • Bias-correction mechanism
  • The moisture vaporization rate is monitored and can be visually seen on a bar graph display. This is useful to know as the measurement nears completion. It updates every 30 seconds
  • Various modes: Automatic or Timed ending modes, Standard, Rapid, Slow and Step drying modes, Predictive Measuring mode
  • Data memory and printer output
  • WindowsDirect
