The Ohaus MB120 is a precise moisture balance, with a capacity range from 0.5 to 120 g. It accurately measures moisture loss, giving mass measurements to the three decimal places over a temperature range from +40 °C to + 230 °C. Depending on the application, the user can create custom methods with user-set ramp times, as well as auto shut off when the sample reaches a predefined mass loss or moisture percentage loss. The integrated USB connection allows the user to download results for easy monitoring and reporting, or connect a printer if required (not included). This moisture balance can be used in food analysis and quality control applications to determine the water content, as well as moisture regain determination.
