Unmatched Performance: The Sartorius MA160 Infrared Moisture Analyzer uses industry-leading 600-watt AURI heating units for uniform heating and homogenous sample drying. These advanced heating units are more durable and damage-resistant than conventional heating elements such as halogen heaters and infrared lamps. In addition to exceptional build quality, the Sartorius MA160 Infrared Moisture Analyzer heats up faster and is more resistant to ambient effects like dirt or vibration than other glass heating lamps.

Automated Processes for Greater Efficiency: The Sartorius MA160 Infrared Moisture Analyzer improves accuracy and precision with fully automatic endpoint determination. This feature eliminates time-intensive shut-off parameter screenings by ending the measurement process as soon as a constant sample weight is detected.

Extensive Customization: The integrated Method Development Assistant allows users to conveniently and intuitively develop new analysis methods custom-tailored to a wide variety of samples and laboratory and production tasks. The MA160 uses a simple three-test process to prove new analysis methods before final deployment. At the same time, the integrated library allows users to safely save up to 100 analysis methods for quick and easy deployment. Researchers can easily verify the performance of any analysis method on their MA160 Infrared Moisture Analyzer using the integrated ReproEasy pad, which provides a performance report in five minutes or less.

Applications:  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 MA 160 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 MA 160 include testing of foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, sugar, paper materials and products for environmental protection.

Performance: Fully automatic endpoint determination eliminates the inconvenience of time-consuming screening of shutoff parameters for the MA 160. The moisture analyzer monitors the drying process and ends the measurement once it detects a constant sample weight. The Methods Development Assistant function gives you valuable support in developing new methods for analysis of the widest variety of samples. Three easy test runs are all it takes to develop such methods and approve them for final release. The MA 160 has the capacity to store up to 100 methods and a library for convenient management of your methods. The analyzer additionally features a memory where the results of the last 999 measurements are automatically saved. The data of both memories for methods and results can be exported via the SD card.
